My perfectly prepared soup and salad, with incredible seasoning/flavors, was as wonderful as every trip.

This is my 4th time at Blind Faith - I brought my husband and two adult children this time. I was a little disappointed that our food wasn't as spectacular as my other visits (I was eager to share this neighborhood gem with my family). My husband enjoyed his vegetable lasagna, but the bibimbop, thai peanut noodles and teriyaki rice bowl were a little "eh." that day. But I will definitely return as I know we all can't be perfect 100% of the time! :)

Have been going to this restaurant for over 20 years. The drive for us is over an hour and always well worth it. I have never left this place disappointed.

I went to this place all the way to Evanston, based on Trip Advisor's high ratings. I was excited and wanted to like this place. I also wanted my friend to love this place, for our special outing. However, we found the ratings given to this place to be over-rated. I love vegan and plant based foods, and we are proponents of healthy eating, but we felt everything in general was unfortunately "so-so."

Great vegitarian food, extremely generous portions, reasonably priced. Since it is a top notch bakery too so they serve fantastic desserts too. I've been here for breakfast and lunch before. Blind Faith Cafe has always been impressive and exceeds expectations with daily and seasonal specials

Has become a family favorite. We go for birthday meals/family get togethers. Food and the service are always consistently excellent. Large portions, fresh ingredients. There were 8 of us on our most recent visit, 3 vegetarians and some with food sensitivities. Everyone found something tasty to eat. We spent a couple of hours there and did not feel rushed to leave. My favorite is the Enchiladas Verde, it is delish.

We eat here very often but not for breakfast/brunch. The menu is different and refreshing and I love the food. Thanks too for the nice birthday gift cupcake for our granddaughter.

Was pleasantly delighted for our first visit here. Enjoyed vegetarian cuisine. Portions for lunch were very large and tasty. Numerous choices for the vegan and gluten free. Brought more family for brunch the following day. This is a great place to keep in our repertoire.

My friend and I had very attentive service, from when we checked in to when we paid the bill. So friendly!
We enjoyed being able to sit outside.
I LOVED my avacado and red quinoa entree and can't wait to go back and have it again! My friend also loved her soft tacos. Blind Faith is a true "neighborhood gem"!!!

Blind Faith Cafe is one of the best vegetarian restaurants we've ever been to, and we've been vegetarian for decades. Usually we go here for special occasions, but this most recent time we brought our picky 6-year-old and she really enjoyed it, too! Can't recommend it enough.

It was really nice to re-discover this gem of a vegetarian/vegan restaurant that includes gluten free options. Even though I am neither, the food is delicious and there a lots of choices on the menu. The bakery/desserts case is mouthwatering. The place is quaint but fun... a throwback to the late sixties/early seventies. The service is very good and genuinely engaged. Next time I am in Evanston I plan to return.

We were looking for a restaurant to celebrate our Vegan friend's birthday. Blind Faith fit the bill. Both Vegan and non Vegan friends were impressed with the menu and very pleased with their lunch choices. All dishes had a beautiful presentation.

We go to this restaurant off and on when we are out dining with vegetarian or vegan foods. I'm neither, although we don't eat much meat. However, I am a type 1 diabetic, and a lot of their entrees are quite sugary or sweetened with honey. This doesn't help me so much. Perhaps they should have a symbol they could put by dishes that aren't sweetened in any way. You, know "unsweetened" a category that is also healthier!
