It's hard to top the brunch here. There are a few standbys on the menu, but the true stars are the dishes that incorporate seasonal fruits and veggies. Can't go wrong with a stack of griddle cakes!

The Logan Square institution hosts weekly farm dinners, but boasts a lunch and dinner menu that changes regularly to match what's in season.

The Best Caesar Salad You Will Ever Have! – If you are a salad lover this is the place to be! There Caesar salad is the best one you will ever have. They make their own dressing and they add red pickled onions you want to ask for extra onions because they totally make the salad it would be as good without the onions! If I could have this salad everyday I would.

wonderful – the good: food, service, and overall atmosphere are top-notch. an extraordinary, ever-changing specials menu gives you a new, amazing dish every weekend before 2, and even it's regular dishes are great.

the bad: waiting. in the winter. outside and miserable. also, it rarely isn't crowded, even in the bar waiting area, and you're lucky if you're only in there 15 minutes.

the ugly: though the art itself is beautiful, it rarely changes, and while an exhibit of R.E.M.-inspired artwork is interersting, i doubt anyone looks at it and thinks 'this will never get old', the flowers always look like they've been dead for six months, and if you bring your kids prepare to have everyone in the building hate your fertile guts.

Good for a casual lunch with a couple friends – I went to Lula's for an early lunch with some friends one morning. It is a little small, and has an indie vibe. The waiters are in regular clothes. It seems sort of run down from the outside, but that adds to the charm, as it is very modern in the inside. There are exotic flowers at every table. The menu is a little small but the food is very fresh and tasty. It's healthy too, no deep-fried chicken here. I would recommend the fruit smoothie. I wouldn't go out of my way to come here, but if I'm walking by I would definitely stop in.

Delicious! – I've been referred to Lula's by a friend, have since then have taken many friends on many weekends to this delicious, savory spot! The Sunday line is annoyingly long, but the food is well worth the wait! The STRADA is the absolute BEST! My friends enjoyed their breakfast burritos, and the morning drinks are delicious as well! The only disappointing thing was the French Toast... I'd go elsewhere for those...

friendly lula – i'm very fortunate to live very near to lula cafe and go there frequently. it really is one of the best places to go for consistently good contemporary food, that's not too fussy, at amazingly reasonable prices. my one complaint USED to be that they always had terrible service. i mean terrible. we even wrote a few letters. But now, they seemed to have seen the light and ditched the waitstaff with the "too cool to serve you" attitude. Now everyone there is super friendly, helpful, and committed to making your meal great.

A Gem – I was lucky enough to live around the corner from Lula for several years and went there often. Their dinners are inventive and honest and their dedication to using seasonal, local ingrediants is inspiring. They have a regular cafe menu with great, cheap dishes (I day-dream about their beet brushetta and shitake quesidillas) For dinner they offer an ever changing specials menu as well which is fantastic. Their brunch is the best in the city bar none, the best biscuts and gravy I've ever had and the marscapone stuffed french toast- intense. The setting is artsy and intimate. Lovely.

Too much hype! – Everyone was raving about this place so I decided to check it out. I was impressed with the ambience and decor but was a bit disappointed when the food came out. I can see why it's popular but I can't see why some consider it one of the best restaurants in the city. Decent, but I wouldn't even consider it the best restaurant in Logan Square.

Best turkey sandwich I've ever had – I used to live in Logan Square and ate at Lula about once a week, and I absolutely LOVED the food, but it was mostly carry out. Recently, I've taken my girlfriend there, and she mentioned she doesn't feel comfortable there-- the seating isn't relaxed, and it often feels like you're dining at the same table with strangers. Plus, it's become kind of a hipster/yuppie hangout. So while I can're recommend the food (expecially the turkey sandwich) and coffee enough, I'd say call ahead and take the food home.
