Love Your Food Everyday

We Stand for Balance

LYFE means Love Your Food Everyday. We're creating craveable, feel-good-food that tastes amazing & makes your body feel great. Have Sunday morning pancakes doused in Michigan maple syrup, or a nourishing lunch that's quick to get but leaves you happy for hours. Sip vibrant local beer & tap wine, or dabble in double-chocolate desserts. Our balanced life is wonderfully fun, fulfilling and delicious.

A Commitment to Quality

Every ingredient allowed through our doors has been mindfully chosen. We go mad for Mighty Vine tomatoes, Hidden Acres honey, Lake Breeze micro greens, and the local farmers that grow them.  Sometimes that means we spend more time, money, and effort than others. The hustle is real, and it is so worth it. Your business means the world to us, and we won't stop working for it.

We Are Chicago

Our home town is both a city and an energy, and its best qualities are reflected in our team. We are spirited, scrappy, gracious and kind. We work hard, tell the truth, try our best, and try to get better. We push, we coach, we grow, and we push a little harder to give the best of ourselves to every guest we serve.
