3315 W Armitage Ave, Chicago, IL 60647

GROUND CONTROL! is a cozy vegan restaurant featuring a wide variety of dishes from different cuisines. During the summer days, we love having their cold sesame noodles after work. They also have some hearty options for the cold weather.

From bowls to street food, to sushi and full-size entrees, Amitabul brings vegan Korean cuisine to a peak not many can surpass. We love everything from their menu, but if we have to choose, we’d say go with the dumplings, Jade Maki Sushi, and the Spicy Kimchi Bi Bi Bop.


1401 W Devon Ave, Chicago, IL 60660


Uncommon Ground is where the real vegans go for not only great food but an amazing experience. Besides their impeccable menu, they also feature open mic night and a ton of other fun activities. Plus, the sidewalk cafe at their Lakeview location and the beer garden in Edgewater are both officially open!

700 N Michigan Ave 7th floor, Chicago, IL 60611

Althea is definitely one of the best vegan restaurants in Chicago, hands down. If you have a small appetite like us, go with multiple appetizers. Or, if you’re feeling hungry, dive in with their full-size entrees! Also, don’t forget to try their organic beer selection.

613 W Briar Pl, Chicago, IL 60657

Fancy Plants is the perfect vegan spot for brunch. Located in the heart of Chicago, they also sell Dark Matter Coffee — speaking of two birds with one stone, right? We love their bagels to the bottom of our hearts, but they also have other pastries to satisfy your sweet tooth.

They’ve opened a new establishment called Fancy Plants Kitchen recently. Make sure you check it out!

Sunda has a variety of vegan and vegetarian sushi options that are just equally delicious as their regular menu items. Our personal favorite is the sweet potato caterpillar, featuring roasted sweet potatoes, asian pear, avocado, black garlic teriyaki, and roasted red pepper puree.

If you’re looking for treats at our beloved The Goddess and Grocer, don’t miss out on their salad options. We highly recommend the detox salad, featuring kale, spinach, quinoa, avocado, beets, red onion, edamame, broccoli, grape tomatoes, cranberries, pumpkin seeds, and the signature Goddess house dressing made with honey.
