IL, Chicago – Karyn’s Raw Cafe


This recommendation was emailed in by Karen of Avoiding Milk Protein.

This is a vegan restaurant (all dairy-free!) with a large raw foods focus too. The menus for both raw and cooked food seem extensive and varied – both are viewable online. 

A few of the menu items may appear to contain dairy, but the staff at Karyn's confirmed that this is a completely dairy-free restaurant:

"We are absolutely 100% vegan at all of our locations which include Karyn’s Cooked, Karyn’s Raw and Karyn’s on Green. We do not use any animal products in any of our food or supplements. We have things like  sour cream, cheeses, ice cream and things like that but it is all made from nuts and seeds and things of the sort. We take our vegan reputation very seriously and we would never use any animal products and compromise that."

Location: 1901 North Halsted Street, Chicago, Illinois
