This is the embodiment of a hole-in-the-wall cafe on the University of Chicago campus! I am a huge fan for the good food at affordable prices. The last two times I came, they were out of the Shakshuka, but this time I finally got to try it and it more than exceeded my expectations! The broth is so flavorful and perfect to eat alongside the warm, soft pita. The portion size is perfect — it was just filling enough. Definitely need to introduce more of my friends to this place!!
This is such a little gem in Hyde park! I can’t believe it took me so long to find it. It’s a cute little cafeteria in a Lutheran church with lots of natural lighting, with excellent food made fresh to order, and great coffee (with the option of soy milk creamer- this never happens at most cafes so I’m super excited when there’s lactose free options!!!) The prices are also extremely fair. I got the crab BLT on Texas toast and it was delicious. It was a bit too salty, but besides that I thought it was one of the best sandwiches I’ve had. It also came with a generous side of fries. I can’t wait to come back here and try other items!
I love when an establishment respects that I’m vegan and makes special meals for me; it really warms my heart and makes my day! The chef was phenomenal (man with dreads, sorry I didn’t catch your name 🙁 ) He made my man and I vegan tacos that were slamming! They had impossible beef in them, a special salsa, and avocado. In my opinion, the beans and rice are what made the tacos though! Of note, the restaurant is located on the University of Chicago campus.
Amazing!!! Huge portions, very flavorful! I even have left overs. I had the crab cake blt and sweet potato fries P.s. – Hey Renee
Freshly made to order meals in 5min… with NO TAXES? This place is a fantastic deal with homemade and great ingredients. Love this cafe… which beats the UC cafes soundly. Go here and eat! Especially love the blackened Salmon over salads and their Impossible Jerk Burger. Patty is sometimes too thick because it looks handmade and rolled in a minute… but it has consistently been delicious. Shout out to the cooks, who do a great job in 5min. Hey Hakeem!
This food is delicious! Definitely try the Jamaican Jerk Flattie… it is seasoned perfectly, and the pineapple chutney is delish! You will not be disappointed.
Have you ever had food so good that it changes your mood? Today, my breakfast made my day. I have walked by this place 100 times and never stopped in. I didn’t know it existed. Today, I went onto a food delivery site and noticed a place with Shakshuka! I ordered the steak pita breakfast and chilaquiles. I was having a rough morning and then I took a bite of that breakfast pita. It truly changed my mood. It was so good that I called my Momma to tell her about it. I’m saving the chilaquiles for later, but wow.
A little gem in Hyde Park. Didn’t know about this place until a friend tipped us off. Now that we’ve been here, we almost want to keep it our little secret (hence the online review LOL). But in all honesty, this place is so quaint and charming. We ordered sandwiches off of their “global sandwiches” menu — the “Salmon Po Boy” and “Chicken 65 Flattie.” For $9 a sandwich, our expectations were blown out of the water. Presentation was stellar and sandwiches even came with fries! My boyfriend said that the chicken was a tad salty, but honestly I liked it. The best part about this cafe is that the staff are so welcoming and warm. We were the last ones in the cafeteria, so we were treated to a complimentary slice of leftover key lime pie that would have otherwise gone to waste (thank you!). It was PHENOMENAL. Best pie I’ve had. We will be back!
Just ordered delivery and I think it arrived in like 20 mins! Pretty crazy. I got the vegan jerk burger and it was so good. The chutney was sweet and a tiny bit spicy, and the buns were perfect. The veggies added a crunch and rounded it out well. Idk what else to say, will definitely order from here again!
