Buzz Cafe, Oak Park, IL

Buzz Cafe Restaurant Review

: The self-proclaimed buzz at this nook has as much to do with coffee as the setting and likeable, organic-minded menu. Is it funky? Yep. Filled with moms with kids in tow? Without a doubt. The foundation of the menu is coffee (and tea). But there’s a heavy emphasis on healthy, wholesome salads, sandwiches with a wide range of vegan and vegetarian options, plus morning fare like organic egg burritos and sandwiches, quiche and french toast with almond butter and cinnamon-sugar and a whole menu just for youngsters. Brie and chicken pair up with caramelized onions, sautéed apples and bacon in a honey-wheat wrap, while soups may be accompanied by gluten-free bread. Meanwhile, there are a couple of fresh-pressed panini and a line of gourmet burgers and flatbreads for the hot entrée-seeking crowd. Home-baked goods like cookies, donuts and pastries make for great snacks, treats and take-home options.
