Food for college kids who are broke or want to go for broke.
Come for brunch and stay for a drink. A hippie's favorite joint with all natural & free range food.
Grew up in this. Great pizza and fantastic fried chicken. Dinner, late night or just a craving, this is your pizza fix.
There's only 2 Ethiopian places I would go in Chicago and this is one of them. Went here w/ a friend who never had Ethiopian before and we both were in for a delight. Go for the combo plate to try a little of everything.
A very great grill to have lunch. Gyros or burgers, it's a nice place for quick cheap grub.
The most green & sustainable restaurant in the US (2013). Superb food & wonderful atmosphere. Come here to eat well and healthy.
Delicious local taqueria off the Morse L stop for a quick pre-dinner or as the Hobbits would say, first dinner.
Ethiopian coffee: strong, delicious & warms the soul. If you never had it before, try it.
You'll forget about ice cream once you have the frozen custard here. Get a concrete to your desire. Snickers: peanuts, chocolate & caramel
Great place to go for gyros in Rogers Park.
Fantastic sandwiches. Great local place with lots of open space. Very welcoming. Perfect for brunch, lunch or coffee.
Sandwiches are good, but they also make crepes. You can also get sliced lunch meat to take home.
A dear local coffee shop chain that roast their own beans. Very friendly and welcoming to college students, laptops and loungers.
Pizza by the square makes a great lunch fare.
Korean & American noms all on a grill. Can't go wrong w/ a burger or a some bulkogi, but dare try the kimchi burger.
Lovely bakery, coffee & sandwich shop. Eclectic & very welcoming. Come for coffee, but must try one of their sandwiches. Watch your step.
