Yummy food, great menu. Had some issues being served non-vegan things even though we specified a few times about our dietary restrictions. But staff was apologetic and worked fast to fix. DELICIOUS deserts!

One of our favorite places to eat in Evanston. The pot pie, shiitake loaf, double chocolate cake, and peanut butter chocolate cake are delicious. The service, ambiance, and value are great too.

Menu had good variety and server was knowledgeable and efficient. Dessert confirmed that we need to come back soon! Only drawback was the noise level made it challenging to talk at times.

Outstanding service which made the wonderful vegan and vegetarian options even better. We were so surprised when our food was served so quickly for our party of 9. My salad was so fresh topped with the perfect amount of ingredients. The portion sizes were generous and many of us brought some home. Don’t forget the wonderful vegan desserts! The peanut butter chocolate cake was incredibly yummy!

Wife got sack from the Mongolian Beef. The same thing happened to my daughter the last time. Service felt rushed like they were trying to push us out.

My husband and I visited Blind Faith Cafe on our return trip from Chicago to Princeton, NJ, because I remembered eating there as a graduate student more than forty years ago, when it first opened. I was happy to see that the ambience and food quality had soared in the years between. Neither of us is vegetarian, but we enjoyed the pear-and-goat-cheese salad and spinach lasagna that we shared. I can recommend the Blind Faith Cafe for the food, ambience, and value it offers.

Blind Faith is my favorite restaurant. to bring my non-vegan family and friends. There are delicious options for everyone. My omnivore husband had the tacos again on a recent visit. I had the Thai Peanut Noodles - just the right amount of heat. Next time, the fajitas! The desserts are amazing-especially the cupcakes. This place never disappoints me.

We had a fabulous dinner. We were traveling through Evanston and decided to try Blind Faith Cafe as we were able to sit outside. I had the Walnut Loaf and it was really special. I shared the split pea soup with my husband which was delicious as well as a Belgian chocolate pudding, also delicious. My husband had the spinach lasagna which he loved. Portions are quite large and the restaurant offers a great value. Our waiter was great….attentive, upbeat and helpful. If we were locals we would probably eat there weekly. Looking forward to passing through again so we can return and try a few more of their menu items.

Loved the food. Loved the weather. Loved the service. Love my peanut thai. Love my sun with breeze. Love service staff who are there when wanted and not there when in conversation. Finally loved the opportunity to meet with someone to carry on business. Peace and cheers.

Took my in-laws because we recently moved just blocks away and could walk there. My husband and I hadn’t been to Blind Faith in a number of years. Everything was as good or better than we remembered. My mother-in-law thought the Mediterranean Salad was one of the best salads she’s ever had! Thai peanut noodles and enchiladas were delicious and my father-in-law really enjoyed his rice bowl. Service was attentive without being overbearing. We were really happy with the whole evening. Too full for desert but we will save some room for our next visit!
