closed - Edit

Stopped there on 8/14/2015 for lunch and found them closed. Evidently this is permanent. Went to the one on Clark St and asked what happened. They indicated that the Clinton location closed about 2 weeks ago without notice. Sad. Good that Clark St is open and very busy.

Pros: Had a nice vegan selection and was close to trains

Cons: Closed

Vegan Fast Food, For Better or Worse - Edit

I had been to Native Foods once before, but this was the first time to this location. The location is convenient, the dining room is pleasant, the staff are efficient, but...this visit left me with the same disappointment I felt the first time I went to a Native Foods. The problem is the menu. I've been a vegetarian in the Midwest for over twenty years, and usually when I go to a veg restaurant, I'm overwhelmed by having options! At Native Foods, I feel like I'm in a regular restaurant. Almost all the dishes are designed around flavors I associate with meat--BBQ, bacon, ranch, cheeseburger, etc. (I wouldn't normally call cheeseburger a flavor, but if you put it in a burrito...) If you crave these flavors, this may be a great place for you. But if you're wanting dishes that were developed to showcase vegetables, you may actually be better off choosing the veg option at one of the many other restaurants within a few blocks.

Pros: Fast service, Pleasant dining area, Convenient location

Cons: Disappointing menu

Pros: Friendly staff, No lines (because there is minimal foot traffic at, 100% vegan

Cons: Very limited menu, Menu always seems to be changing, Too expensive (better options at Hannah's Bretzel
