Blind Faith is always incredible. I've taken many non-vegetarians here and they always really like the food. Vegetarians and vegans will find many good options.

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Chicago....it's been there for so many years. Dependable, amazing cooks, healthy. I've been eating here since the early '90's.

We dined here after a show: my dining companions have dietary restrictions which make dining out a challenge. Blind Faith Cafe never fails to provide delicious, innovative vegan and vegetarian fare (including their fantastic desserts). I loved the flavors, generous portions and presentations.
