Loved the burger - Edit

This year I am trying out vegan places to eat and Kal’ish made my list of places to eat some great vegan food. I would definitely go there again.

Kal'ish is de'lish! - Edit

We travelled all the way from the Southside of Chicago which is a vegan desert! We found Kal'ish to be well worth the trip. The casual cafe is super stylish, cute and clean. You order and they bring the food to you. It is all vegan and there is a wonderful variety of delicious made from scratch breakfast, lunch and dinner items and a huge selection of baked goods. We loved everything, we had the nachos, clucker sandwich, barbecue seitan and pesto grilled cheez. All of the sandwiches were very big and served with either fresh made chips or fries and a side bean salad that was a good portion and very tasty. We could not finish everything and took some home to save room for desserts. It was difficult to choose from the huge selection. We settled on a slice of the funfetti cake and a pumpkin iced cupcake. Both were delicious but I have to say the pumpkin cupcake was just amazing. It had creme inside! We are looking forward to returning to try more things. Luckily it is very close to Lake Shore Drive and we can get there conveniently from even the Southside.

Pros: Amazing selection, Friendly staff, Stylish and clean

Cons: It was a little cold in the cafe that day

Amazing great food! - Edit

They make everything in house, including the feta. They ferment their feta and we could not tell any difference from the dairy version. Their bacon is also in-house and is exceptional with smoke and maple forward. Perfect texture. So many wonderful menu options. Wish we could have stayed longer and tried everything!

Pros: 100% plant-based with superb flavors

Cons: Parking, but a surmountable challenge. They are aw

Great Lunch & Brunch Option - Edit

I've visited Kal'ish twice so far - once for lunch and once for Sunday brunch.

My favorite thing I've tried so far is the Woodland Burger. The Jackfruit Slider was good, but a bit too sweet and chunky for my taste.

For brunch, their version of Chicken and Waffles was great! I've been wanting to see this on a menu for some time now. The only downfall is that they served it with gravy and I was expecting syrup. I also sampled my husband's Biscuits and Gravy which was good but it only had one biscuit and the vegan eggs weren't really seasoned.

Overall, I've had a wonderful experience both times. The staff is friendly, the service is fast, the food is good. For the quality of food, the prices are a bit steep for me, but I'm willing to look the other way since they offer a 100% plant-based menu with classic comfort food options.

Note: This is a great place for brunch, even with groups of people. There were plenty of empty seats when I got there at around noon (both inside and outside). A lot of people seem to take their food to go so it doesn't seem to get crazy busy when you dine-in.

Pros: 100% vegan

Cons: pricey for fast food

Fast, tasty, 100% vegan food - Edit

This is a fast food restaurant with a 100% vegan menu. They serve burgers, fries, sandwiches, wings, etc. They also have breakfast all day. They food is fresh, tasty and well put together. Definitely worth a visit. I added pics of the menu. There's virtually nothing gluten free, other than a salad. One of the burgers can be GF without the bun.
