We had the "chicken" salad which was un-chicken. Then we had the blueberry crumble - delicious and pomegranate iced drink. We sat there for quite a while and no one asked us to leave. We stayed inside because it was a hot day. They have...More

Looking for unique gluten free options- this place has traditional Wicker Park cuisine options on top of their classic menu. Chicken tacos, parmesan fries really good. Portobello jibarito was made with fresh ingredients. Family free environment. Unique colorful. Close to metro/train.

Easy to get into on a Sunday morning. Ordered the OC Raw Chopper Salad, Avocado Crunch Wrap, and the Portobello Sausage Burger. All were brought out quickly, and they were all flavorful. I would suggest the Avocado Crunch wrap, because it has a beautiful sauce...More

The place is really nice with a lot of natural light. The walls are made of glass. The wooden tables are very comfortable and make you feel at home. Sitting on a real table and not just plastic tables from a food court. I had...More
