Native Foods Cafe  (multiple Chicago locations) is my favorite! I think I have an addiction to it. The vegan gluten free mac and cheese is my favorite. I also love the moroccan bowl!   :-)

Green Zebra is amazing! I went for my birthday one time.

Bite Café is a great place. I was there recently.

Mana Food Bar has some vegan options -- it's one of my favorite places! I love everything I have eaten here.

Any of the Karyn's  restaurants are great. My favorite is Karyn's On Green. My sister loves Karyn's Raw Bistro. Karyn's Cooked has some great dishes as well (I like their chili).

Love Pick Me Up Cafe! It's an oldy but a goodie!

Loving Hut is a favorite amongst my family. 

Blind Faith Cafe in Evanston is always a great option. 

Handlebar is also supposed to be really good. It's been on my bucket list for awhile.

The Chicago Diner is really good too.

Heartland Cafe is great.

Kopi A Travelers Cafe is delicious.

Meli Cafe has great vegan options. It's one of my favorite brunch and lunch spots. 

Protein Bar and Freshii are wonderful for casual fast food options.

Yummy Yummy Asian Cuisine is pretty popular. 

There are multiple cold press juice and smoothie joints popping up around Chicago in nearly every metro neighborhood. My favorites are REAL GOOD JUICE Co. in Old Town and Peeled Juice Bar in Lincoln Park.

Also check out the natural and organic grocery stores around town like Whole Foods and Plum Market. There are also neighborhood markets and specialty grocery stores like Green Grocer Chicago, The Goddess and Grocer, Olivia's Market, Urban Orchard, Southport Grocery and Cafe, and more.

There are lots of great vegan options in Chicago.  There is a wonderful casual vegan mini-chain called Native Foods cafe.  They have locations Native Foods Cafe downtown, Native Foods Cafe in Lakeview, and Native Foods Cafe in Bucktown.  Karyn Calabrese (a local vegan expert) has a couple restaurants that are also delicious - Karyn's Cooked and Karyn's Fresh Corner and Day Spa.  She also has a vegan spa and store at the Fresh Corner location. Another spot worth checking out is the The Chicago Diner: Logan Square in Logan Square.  Enjoy!
