Lake Side Cafe - Chicago

Since opening our doors in 2005, the Lake Side Cafe has been earning the reputation as “Chicago’s Best Vegetarian Restaurant” for the health-conscious and connoisseurs of quality food. We offer a variety of wholesome and delicious choices while using healthy, nearly 100% certified organic, preservative and chemical-free ingredients. In a relaxed atmosphere with great service, we offer daily specials, house-made fruit and vegetable juices and smoothies, and you can complement your meal with a delectable choice from the Lake Side Cafe vegan bakery. So, come by and enjoy the outdoor dining area during the summer months or our indoor dining room year round.

With the added bonus of vegetarian and vegan cooking classes, buffets, special events, and a green catering division, we have something to offer everyone and something for every occasion. We are dedicated to the lowest carbon footprint in the restaurant industry and support local sustainable farming, so you can enjoy dining knowing you’ve done the best for yourself, the community and the environment. We welcome you to visit Lake Side Cafe and to experience our commitment to you, our customer.
