Welcome to The Chicago Diner!

It's been a long time since we first introduced a vegetarian diner to Chicago and we'd like to thank you for your continued support. We've had a lot of great accomplishments over the years, most recently, expanding to two locations, publishing our second cookbook, and continuing to support several of our favorite advocacy groups. Without you, our customers and fans, none of this would be possible.
