Karyn's is a great place for health fresh cooked food. Whenever we are in Chicago, we go to at least one of Karyn's locations to eat.

Granted, we showed up close to 8pm, which is when the place closes..which is very early in my opinion. I thought we could get a few treats in the ready made cases to go instead. Was told the Groupon was for dine in only. Mind you,the groupon was expiring soon, as I pointed out, and we were from the other side of town. Since many parties were still dining in connected formal dining side, we decided to stay. But no one paid us any attention. So back to our idea of taking a few ready made items from the case and taking a seat in the casual dining area. No one said a word, figured someone would approach to ring up our items. We started to break the seals on those individual amazing cakes and fresh rolls and grab some forks. 10 minutes later a cashier informed we needed to pay for those items, now. Situation was strange, should have just let us pay for the take out items and go. The desserts were great, but the situation was weird.

They were very pleasant and concerned. It was a problem finding my confirmation. However, they found it and I was good to go. It was my first time but, it won't be my last visit.

About This Deal

Jump to: Reviews | Vegetarianism and You

The hardest part of eating vegan is explaining to the family that the flamingo tongues at the Saturnalia banquet still count as meat. Today's Groupon gets you nutritious, delectable food in a classy environment. For $10, you get $25 worth of gourmet vegan fare at Karyn's Cooked. Whether you're fully vegan, are thinking about taking the plunge, or you merely want to purge your body of animal products after the particularly heavy-eating holiday season, Karyn's Cooked will tickle your toothbone with succulent morsels of animal-free goodness. In addition to being totally vegan, several of Karyn's dishes are gluten-free.

Karyn's Cooked is the perfect destination for blind dates: you can easily accommodate unknown dietary restrictions and ethics and deliver hip ambience and mouthwatering meals. Karyn's handsome space is decorated with tawny wall panels and chic pendant lights to project a romantic glow onto your date's face. Hit up Karyn's for a romantic Sunday brunch for egg-less scrambles ($10–$11), post-Hanukkah potato pancakes ($6.95), banana french toast ($10), and copious mimosas ($9).

Vegans and vegetarians who miss the taste of some of their favorite meat dishes can relive the hedonistic delights without breaking their diet. Karyn's serves up southern-style comfort foods and hearty Mexican and Italian dishes that are packed with protein, flavor, and all the right textures to satisfy vegans, vegetarians, and meat-eaters. Try one of Karyn's hot sandwiches ($8.95), served with potato wedges and coleslaw, such as the taco wrap (ground soy protein with chipotle sauce, pico de gallo, and lettuce in a tomato tortilla), sloppy jo (with slow-cooked soy protein on a toasted whole wheat bun), or meatball (with spicy lentil meatballs, marinara, and soy cheese). Try a slab of barbecue ribs ($11.95) made from a tofu/seitan meat substitute, or flautas stuffed with a tofu and carrot mix ($11.95). If you aren't interested in being fooled by meat-esque meals, Karyn's offers veggie-rich dishes such as stuffed eggplant (with faux ricotta and marinara, $10.95), the Buddha bowl (brown rice with grilled veggies and teriyaki sauce, $10.95), and the decadent grilled polenta (with porcini and shitake mushrooms, $12.50).
