About the restaurant
We like to say that we are International Vegan Restaurant. That means our food is 100% plant based and Globally Inspired. We have a few American classics like homemade veggie burgers, mac and cheese and of course Nachos. However, we also have plenty of healthy options. Our Kitchen Manager specializes in creating comfort dishes from different cultures by making food that is hearty and flavorful, but still healthy. Many food items will have a focus on plants, rather than trying to mimic meat. Reading our menu is like traveling the globe with the different options we will have. Have a taste of Mediterranean, Middle East, Asia, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Italy, Balkans and so much more! Brunch Menu is available Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We were nominited for the best brunch in the country by VegOut Magazine and our soup was nominated as Best Soup of Chicago. We won Best Patio 2020 by North Commision. Can't wait to welcome you.

Such a cute little gem in our neighborhood! They have a gorgeous shaded patio with floral/garden accents. The inside also looks cozy with wooden accents, we will return in the winter. The food was amazing and they had a great drinks list. Their tots are next level and my burger was insane. They are known for their many flavored mules that come with a rubber duck. Will definitely come again!

Very cute, girly restaurant with great service and good drinks! Ordered chicken wings for the appetizer & salmon for my entree, both could’ve been seasoned better & the sides for the salmon could’ve been a way bigger proportion for the price but overall it wasn’t terrible. Will definitely come back for brunch & to take more pics!
