Awkward but prob great in the future!

I like this funky spot! It was awkward during the pandemic or maybe we just had a hiccup day but it was hard to order with a food allergy (clerk didn’t know the ingredients and I got something I couldn’t eat). The kitchen tried to fix it but I honestly ended up getting dry kale with pan fried rice and avo for $13 and that def wasn’t a $13 salad:( I hope as the world opens up they have a smoother time with everything. Wish I had known they can’t accommodate my allergy (onions) before ordering.

Not worth it

Guy at register disregarded a food allergy in our group instead of checking with the kitchen, forgot to ring up some of our food so we never got it, and made several unwarranted comments about how he was “having a really bad day” which is understandable but definitely made it an unpleasant experience for us. The food itself was subpar at best

Worth it.

Kitchen Mouse is pricey, but so worth it, especially for a great vegan breakfast. My favorites are the chilaquiles (with tofu scramble) and the snickerdoodle pancakes. Everything I’ve gotten here has been such a treat.

Our favorite breakfast place

Coffee is always fresh and delish, staff is always super friendly and kind, and their breakfast options are multiple. Plus have they so many choices for muffins!

I have been getting the breakfast sandwich for several years. It's my go-to and no need to change. It's a full plate of food for sure. With that Mike and I usually share a snickerdoodle pancake. Yep, you read that right!

Check them out. It may become one of your regular spots.

Pros: Awesome staff, A lot of vegan breakfast options, Good coffee

Okay, but long wait for food

My visit was a while back, and what I had wasn't particularly memorable. I was disappointed, because a friend had been raving about Kitchen Mouse for ages, and my food was bland.

Would be willing to try again, and hopefully I would discover I just picked the wrong item/day.

Delicious food!

This restaurant was super busy the day that my mom and I went, but the food was so amazing! I ordered the moros cakes and my mom got the pancakes. Both were delicious and vegan. The only non vegan thing that they use on the menu are eggs, but they never bake with them. They have so many vegan options! Be preprepared to wait, but the food is awesome. Highly suggest this place.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Delicious food

Cons: Can be crowded

Best vegan brunch

I go to Kitchen Mouse at least once a week. Their vegan options are all amazing. At this point I’ve eaten a little of everything. If you’re looking for savory try the breakfast tacos with tofu (best vegan breakfast tacos I’ve ever had) it you’re looking for sweet their snickerdoodle pancakes are amazing. All of the food tastes fresh, looks beautiful, and is incredible. I can’t recommend this place enough. They are almost 100% vegan - they do serve eggs, but any egg dish can be made completely vegan. Also, because they serve eggs it makes it easier for non veg people to be excited about it too!

Pros: LOTS of delicious vegan options, Great Highland Park location

KMN - Kitchen Mouse, Now!

Don't kill me yet. I've yet to go back for the vegan chillaquillles at Kitchen Mouse!

Rode over the stadium hill to try this joint and was very happy I did. Wasn't inside much because this merciful market of magic has an outstanding patio with efficient and friendly service. Ate the open-faced tempeh reuben here and placed it squarely in the top ten list of Tempeh Reuben's I have loved to eat the most. Hoping this place stays open forever, great food and may the kitchen mouse muse your mouth as she did mine!

Pros: Patio seating for pets and claustrophobes., Cute location/restaurant, Busy enough for brunch to be fresh, but not packed

Delicious vegan lunch

Very nice eatery for breakfast and lunch in up and coming Highland Park. The enchiladas and vegan pancakes that I had were delicious. They also serve an outstanding macro bowl.

Delicious food and warm atmosphere

Four of us went to the Kitchen Mouse for lunch. We ordered at the counter and they brought the food to our cafe-style table. We ordered 4 different dishes (Pesto Bowl, Tempeh Ruben, Mikey's Chilaquiles and the Avocado sandwich). We all thoroughly enjoyed our food. The staff was friendly and helpful. We will be back!

Good vegan pancakes

We were in the neighborhood so we stopped by for brunch/lunch.

I had delicious, gluten-free vegan pancakes made with corn, buckwheat, and oats, served with berries and maple syrup. My companion had the tempeh reuben, which he enjoyed.

The menu seems to be almost vegan, except that they also serve eggs. I'd feel more comfortable eating here if there were no eggs, but at least they aren't into dairy.

Service was friendly and relaxed yet attentive.

Street parking was refreshingly easy.

Pros: Great vegan GF pancakes, Friendly service

Cons: Serves eggs
