Not Really Impressed

3 Posted on 09 / 11 / 2012

When I go to Filter it's just b/c I happen to be in the neighborhood. I wouldn't go out of my way to come here, unless you're looking for free wifi. The place is packed with couches, tables and outlets. Much more vegetarian-friendly than vegan-friendly. The vegan items I've had here have been bland and not very memorable.

Filter is located in the hipster part of Chicago known as Wicker Park. That being said, Filter itself is a very hipster-like coffee place (that also serves food). I personally like the decor of Filter - it's just filled with several odd/old couches, it's cozy. As for the food, there are several vegetarian items available and a few vegan items - you can get most of the vegetarian items vegan by excluding the dairy items. I had the tofu scramble veganized and thought it was good, a little bland, but still good. I'd recommend adding salt and hot sauce to the dish, but you may just like it on its own. Overall I think this is a neat place to stop by for a coffee, a small meal, or to lounge around for a little while.
