The Heartland Cafe: Selected as one of Time Out Chicago’s Essential
Restaurants in Chicago!!!! Using Maple Hollow’s Baking Grade Maple Syrup!
The Heartland is as much as a playground for twenty and thirty-somethings as it is a restaurant. Local music acts ranging from folk to rockabilly to jazz flock to its stage as frequently as the local art on the walls changes. Top billing, however, belongs to its menu. To the delight of vegans, vegetarians, and the cholesterol conscious, organic whole wheat breads, salad plates, and black bean burgers are offered, but red meat seekers won’t be disappointed when the turkey alternatives to bacon and ham arrive plated next to their generously sized omelets.
