As a vegan, I find it quite hard to find friendly restaurants but The Chicago Diner has topped my high standards. Offering all vegetarian, and MANY vegan options, this place makes vegan eating a hassle free and pleasant experience. Although the food is nothing I couldn't make myself and a bit on the expensive side, I love to bring non-vegans here to experience a quality vegan meal. Great selection of soups, appetizers, sandwiches, full meals, AND DESSERTS! The vegan cakes are worth the extra money, I've never tried vegan cake that tastes SO GOOD! (Even I can't do it the way they do!)
This restaurant has earned its reputation from local residents, suburban visitors, and nationwide admirers. AND, the service is always great, even when the place is packed (which is often).
Vegans: Try their Vegan Nachos, they are to die for!
