We had seen a billboard on I-94 for this place at least a half-dozen times before we finally got a chance to stop in on a recent trip to the Indiana Dunes. Wow! First off, northern Indiana is not exactly a mecca for vegan food. Secondly, Tiger Lily Cafe was a feast for the eyes before our food even arrived. Someone with an eye for decor and branding pretty clearly works here.

Lunch took awhile to get out of the kitchen during a busy time for the restaurant, but it was worth the wait. We tried a variety of sandwiches and salads and found them all to be quite good. We also got dessert and had trouble choosing from among the great variety of homemade vegan items.

We happened upon the Tiger Lily Cafe and it was the most pleasant surprise of our trip. Talk about variety. They have a breakfast menu, lunch menu, vegan menu and bakery! We got the regular and vegan menus and could hardly tell them apart. Instead of a few of the typical vegan options (like a salad or bean burger), they have created vegan versions of almost all of their regular menu items. We had the pub sandwich, bbq and fries and they were both delicious. Our server was very friendly and attentive. There is outdoor seating which was great since we were travelling with our dog. We also hit the bakery at the end of our meal and got a brownie, a chocolate donut, strawberry shortcake/parfait and a cupcake . . . all vegan!

This little out-of-the-way eatery specializes in vegan/vegetarian fare. You'll be asked if you want the traditional or vegan menu upon being seated in this small bakery/cafe. I said I'd like to look at both. I chose the vegan pub sandwich (and was reminded when the food arrived, that "vegan" doesn't necessarily mean "healthy"). But the sandwich was very good, Very pleasant serving staff, too.
