I hate to admit this, but I have been going to Blind Faith Cafe for over 30 years. It is remarkable, that I can get the same dishes delivered with the same quality over that time. It had been more than a decade since the last time I had visited Blind Faith, but it did not disappoint. Service was good,... More

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.

I love this place! My wife and I have been several times and the only problem is what to order-everything on the menu looks great. Every time we visit Blind Faith the food has been totally delicious. I'm a vegetarian, my wife isn't--but there are options for everyone. Being a vegetarian myself though, I can say this is one of... More

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. Highly recommended.

A longstanding name in the "healthy" food community around Chicago, I am disappointed pretty much every time I go. A bit snobby, music too loud, too expensive and service is spotty. Trying too hard to play both sides. The decor is dated and too uncomfortable for the price.

This a great restaurant if you are dairy intolerant, vegan or gluten free or just like to eat good, fresh food. I just finished having lunch there and the teriyaki rice bowl was delicious and enough for two or leftovers for another meal. Now the best part of Blind Faith are their desserts. I'm dairy intolerant and one would ever... More

Dining partner leans to green at most meals and much more than I. I booked a late weekday lunch excursion to Blind Faith Cafe for us. The choices went far, far beyond salad and mushrooms. Coffee was good, service great and ambience was quite acceptable. I would go again for another lunch
