Hadn't been to Blind Faith in years. Had an outside table. A little loud, but not unexpected at that hour and Dempster & Chicago ave are busy streets. Everything was very good. We had enchiladas & tofu scrambled eggs for brunch. Food and service was great. Would recommend and would return.

We were celebrating our anniversary and chose to go to Blind Faith since it has been a long time since we were there and have always enjoyed the food and service. This time was extraordinary. The food is outstanding and the service better than most fine dining restaurants we frequent. We highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion, or for everyday dining.

All food and beverages served at our table of 3 diners was excellent. Service was a bit on the slow side. Our server had tables both indoors and outdoors and was constantly hustling to serve a lot of people.

First time going- I have heard many good things and wanted to check it out. I’m vegan/Gluten Free and there are many things to choose from. We opted for outside seating and its quite pleasant! Staff is super friendly and attentive. Can’t wait to go back!

Good food, nice waitstaff but not quite as quick as I’d hoped for since we had a toddler with us, it felt like we had to seek out our server several times. Still, we’ll come back because the food is good and it’s a nice spot.

Perfect for when I'm tired of the classic American brunch of pancakes and waffles. The entire menu is vegetarian, with lots of vegan options.

Wonderful food for vegetarians. We had Aztec hash, Mediterranean omelet, Cantonese rice bowl, and Bibimbop. All were excellent. Large portions too.

Blind Faith Cafe is an Evanston staple. The staff are welcoming and knowledgeable. I ordered the quiche which the wait staff suggested and was disappointed. It had no taste and even sprinkling liberally with salt was not enough. Wouldn't order the broc and cheese quiche again. But will definitely be back and will try another thing on the menu.

Noise level was high because we sat outside. Lots of traffic. Noise level inside is always low.

Service was so good that I would give 10 stars if I could.

I have been dining at this restaurant from time to time for over a decade. I love how many vegan options are available and it is a huge plus that in addition to the restaurant, they have a bakery/café with wonderful coffee drinks, teas, juices, etc. and a plethora of baked goods. Whether you have dietary restrictions or prefer to eat a plant based diet (whether that is vegetarian or vegan), this is a wonderful place to checkout in Evanston. I love the variety of their menu and it isn’t difficult for everyone to find something that sounds appealing to them. The service is exceptional and the food is delicious.

Always good, healthy food. My pear, walnut salad probably could have used a little more walnut and cheese, but it was decent.

We enjoyed the potstickers and the Thai peanut noodle dish. However, my favorite item was the Metropolitan cocktail ;) The food was a little on the expensive side considering the relatively normal quality of the food, but I'm looking forward to another trip back to try out other vegan items on the menu!

I was freezing in the big room. I was shivering so couldn't really enjoy my meal. Just wanted to get out of there. I've had this complaint before about BFC and meant to bring a sweater or jacket. Why do you keep it so cold? Also, the quiche I ordered was not very tasty like it usually is. It was dry and crumbly. Oh well. Not a good day for me at BFC although I've never had a complaint about the food before.

After 41 years they know what they’re doing. We absolutely enjoyed it again!
The bean soup and salads were super flavorful and prepared perfectly. Mom had the southwestern salad, good value. The Mongolian seitan was above average it was a little over cooked and therefore the seitan was a little chewy.
The server was amazing!!!!

I wish they kept the BBQ stir fry though!

Meal was wonderful. It was the first time our family ate out together in more than a year. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the desserts were a big hit.

It’s my wife’s favorite restaurant and our non vegetarian kids became converts. All good.

We were there for mother's BRUNCH day and the reservation was at 3 pm due to availability.
At that time we were told that bring was no longer served. Surprise!! Then we were bluntly told by the waiter that if we want brunch we should just go to other place. Nooooot nice at all !!
Minutes later the manager or owner - not sure- came to try to accommodate it.... Shame!
