I enjoyed this place all in all. I didn't try to go for any of the "replacement" foods, like the "steaks" and "chicken" but stuck with spicy eggs and potatoes and the like. It does the spicy tortilla chips and avocado sort of thing very...More

This place is a Chicago classic for good reason. If you’re okay with a wait, you won’t be disappointed. They go above and beyond to create unique plant-based dishes to combat the misconception that plant-based diets are restricting and boring. There really is something for...More

New to the vegan diet, and this was a great introduction. I could walk here from my hotel, wasn't exactly sure what to expect, I ordered the orange 'chicken' and rice. It was so delicious I went back to the next day. Really enjoyed the...More

Very interesting take on brunch food done totally vegan. Not quite as good as the real thing. But not bad, and the fries are fabulous. Friendly service and reasonable prices.

I have eaten ad the CD for years. The food is not as good as it once was. I ate brunch on a Sunday recently and was disappointed. I had the tofu scramble. It was not very flavorful and not particularly appetizing looking (I eat...More
