Blind Faith is the go-to restaurant for vegetarians who want to have a real meal. Fortunately, the exclusively vegetarian menu offers meat-eaters some good variety. Their home made seitan does not taste like the mush in the frozen section of the supermarket. It tastes like real food. Our waiter Sydney always makes sure our experience is a pleasure.

Great food as always and everyone was satisfied with their choices. Only note to returning patrons is that the enchiladas verde now consist of only two instead of three enchiladas and, consequently, are not quite large enough to share.

We loved Blind Faith Cafe! We met some friends for dinner there and being new to the Plant Based Diet thing, we were hungry (!) for a dining experience in which we don't have to explain how we don't eat meat, fish, dairy, etc. and then struggle to figure out what it is we can eat from the menu ("order this without the cheese and the dressing, or this without the chicken", etc) Our dining experience at Blind Faith did not disappoint. I had the Mongolian Stir Fry and it was delicious! We will be back to try all the other yummy sounding items on the menu very soon!

Dinner at Blind Faith on a cold night was a delight worth the trek. I had never tried the Kung Pao and it was fabulous. It was quiet enough for an intense conversation and catch-up with a friend I hadn't seen in more than a year and the staff was attentive while not being intrusive.

They are extremely good about food allergies, gluten free, and vegan options.

This place is still a gem.

I love this place and I'm not a vegetarian! The fajitas are fantastic! And the orange mojito is a great way to get started! Right around the corner from Evenston SPACE, so if you're going to a show, go there first.

Sadly, I have to say I was very disappointed in the dishes. This coming from a vegan. I couldn’t even finish my meal (literally 3 bites) but, server never asked how I enjoyed it. Dish was removed by bus person who asked if I wanted to go and I said “no thanks” still I ordered dessert and experienced the same thing. Between 2 appetizers, 2 entree’s, 2 desserts & soft drinks did not think it was worth $100. Was hoping to love it but will never return.

We had a lovely and delicious brunch! The omelettes are great and the gluten free banana pancakes are yummy. I really appreciate the gluten free options, even in the bakery. This is a favorite place to go for brunch or lunch. Really great service too!

a great vegetarian and vegan restaurant. A nice mix of menu items providing many choice options. The Bakery is connected to the restaurant that offers able vegan treats along side the dairy included treats - which the flourless chocolate cake was a top item.
Dishes are large portions - salad can be split for two or solo if only item eating -
the Thai peanut noodle was a very large portion and had a nice spice level.

I'm not a vegetarian, but I was willing to give this place a try. I ordered the spinach lasagna, and it was excellent. The waiter was helpful and friendly, and the food was well -prepared and arrived quickly enough for us to easily make it to downtown Evanston for a movie. I'd definitely go back.

Always Tasty! Had not had brunch at Blind Faith in a while and the menu was tweaked for the season. Everyone was satisfied with their choices and the joint was hopping! This is our go to place since two thirds our family is vegetarian but it still satisfies the omnivores.

Hard to find a veg/vegan restaurant but this fits the bill. Chef can take veggies and turn them into Asian, Italian, Mexican, French or all-American fare. Thai noodles, lasagna, Marsala, “burgers” are just some examples. Whether you want soup, salad, appetizers, sandwiches or full blown entrees you can find it here. The wine list is pretty good too. Prices are quite reasonable. Bakery goods to go also. Yum!

Very creative cuisine. Vegetarian meals can be boringly tofu-oriented. The chef at Blind Faith knows how to re-create gardein into something that really approximates chicken. The kung pao was great. The bim bop is consistently good. And Sydney, the waiter (and capital of Australia) is warm, personable and knowledgeable.

We always enjoy our visits to the Blind Faith Cafe. The food is excellent.
The prices are moderate. This time our server, Sid, was really good too.
My wife had some kind of different dish (with sweet potatoes and something
like meat, but it wasn't meat). I had Kamoosh, what I truly love at this
restaurant, nachos but different than nachos and very wonderful.
We will continue to go back.
