Meh, bar food

If you want to go to dinner and a bar at the same time with omnivores, this would be a good spot. Otherwise I would probably head elsewhere. We tried a few plates, the avocado tacos, cauliflower wings, brussel sprouts, and the brownie. Everything was okay, not great, not terrible. The best dish was the brussel sprouts, they were flavorful. I probably wouldn't eat here again but it was alright for a quick bite since we were in the area.

I like that they had plenty of vegan options! That was really nice, I got the vegan Mac and cheese. Not blown away by it, could’ve used more salt. The prices were also a bit high for the portion size (my friend got the burrito that was over $17, and it was kinda small). Maybe would go back, but probably wouldn’t be my first choice.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Clearly labeled vegan options

Cons: Pricey for the portion size

Great brunch

Came here and had the brunch. They had a whole table of vegan options, plenty to fill a few platefuls to get your money's worth. Good mix of healthier options and comfort food. They even had vegan deserts and a vegan chocolate fountain for fruit! Overall, a fun place with a great atmosphere and good food

Pros: Entire table of vegan options, Can take omni friends and family

Cons: A little expensive

5 stars Great vegan food

They have a good vegan menu and good service

For some reason the app will only let me give 4 stars. But it’s 5/5!!

Essentially a vegan place

It’s true, they have a majority-vegan menu - LOVE! Had the nachos, they were stellar. The jackfruit carnitas had me anxious they were real (I just don’t remember what meat would taste like and I get worried) SO GOOD. Wish I could have tried the brownie a la mode, but couldn’t access it on their online ordering.
A busy spot in Old Town. The menu is extensively vegan, but there are omni options. Doesn’t feel like a vegan place (ie quiet or empty) so it’s a great place to meet with omni friends. Bustling outdoor seating.

Great Vegan Options

This is one of those rare places where there are more vegan than non-vegan options on the menu. My wife and I had the nachos, jackfruit nuggets, brownie and macaroni and cheese and they were all great. What a treat in the Windy City.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Vegan dessert

Cons: Wine comes in cans

Great offerings!

My Omni friend and I ordered take out during covid together. I could not be happier. We got the Nashville cauliflower, it was INSANELY good. Nachos which were top notch. I got the Bahn mi for my self and tater tots. It was fabulous. I don’t like to eat junk food often but this was great decision to feast. I don’t have a lot of vegans or vegetarians in my inner circle so I love finding places that can make a whole party happy. Everyone can be happy here.
