    The guacamole tasted a little off. The avocado/quinoa was tasteless and the avocado halves weren’t ripe.

    LOVE this place, you don’t miss meat at all because of how delicious everything is. Went with three friends and we shared our food - got the spinach lasagna, enchiladas, pad Thai and the pot pie. Everything was flavorful, huge portions and reasonable price. Our server was attentive, fun and warm. The whole experience was wonderful and we are definitely coming back!

    I adore Blind Faith Cafe. When friends come to town to visit, they often ask if we can eat there. Servers are really friendly and the owner is often available to chat with guests. Even non-vegetarians can find great entrees here!

    The food wasn’t up to Blind Faith standards. (Way too salty, and flavored without subtlety.) Nor was the wine. As prices go up, that is less and less acceptable.

    I love taking people here, even if they are not vegetarian! It is a great little place with quality food and service. Was slightly too noisy for the quiet meeting I was having, but we made it work. On a very hot day, they kept filling my icewater. IT WAS AMAZING. I had the Dempster Street sandwich, which was delicious but a little messy (not a complaint! ), for my one-on-one lunch meeting, but worth every bite.

    We love this place. Staff is always friendly and accommodating. Great with our kids and makes our visit great every time. We come from Berwyn to eat here because the food is great. Sometimes it's hard to find vegetarian or vegan food that isn't a salad or impossible burger. Our kids loved the food and especially the dessert! Thanks for everything!

    There were four of us. The food was excellent, however, the server didn’t write any of our orders down. The appetizer we ordered never came, and when we said just to take it off the check, he goes “oh that’s my bad, I never put it in, so we’re good. You’ve got enough food here, right?” I wasn’t thrilled with that response, but whatever. I also asked for no jalapeños in my Thai noodles, but since he didn’t write it down, I got jalapeños. Other than the poor service, the food was stellar.

    Good generally, usually always wonderful. Could have made something special on the menu for Mothers Day. We had the carrot cake, which the sides of the crust seemed to be old, as in a bit chewy. Service was impeccable. Atmosphere always clean and enjoyable.
