Vegan takeover! This meatless chain is taking Chicago by storm, beginning with this Wicker Park outpost. Salads are big enough to allay even the proudest meat-eater’s fear of leaving hungry. Try the Twister wrap (with grilled “Native Chicken” that’s light and flavorful) or the Chimi Chop salad (peppery seitan smothered in garlicky chimichurri on romaine), and don’t skip surprisingly good desserts like the peanut-butter parfait and cheesecake with granola crust.

This review is for the recent renovation of the Wicker Park native foods cafe. I have been coming here for a while and absolutely love the twister wrap and flavorful soul bowl with bbq seitan! They recently remodeled the restaurant and added new menu and "marketplace" items to give the space a fresher feel. I love the new decor and it feels very earthy and modern. I had the Thanksgiving sandwich which went a little overboard on the flavorless jackfruit. Stick with what you know here - they do "chicken" and "steak" style seitan much better. However the staff was exceptional with explaining everything new and very attentive!

LOVE Native Foods. I love being able to order ANYTHING on the menu. The sesame kale macro bowl, roasted veggies, and oatmeal cream pies are to die for.
