I know there are some thread on this already but wanted to post my experience.
This is my second visit to Karyns and honestly the first time I went although the staff was amazing and I loved the atmosphere of the sit down restaurant, dinner was not exactly amazing! I had to send the pizza back it was sooooo salty, the waitress even sampled it and agreed. So instead I ordered a raw veggie burger that was not anything spectacular. I did have desert last time Tiramisu and that was very tasty!
So I was back in Chicago this week I decided to try again and boy was I glad I did! I skipped the sit down part and just picked out some goodies from Karyn's wide selection of take out. I a mini cheez burger that was very tasty the bun was alittle sweet but after a couple bites it was ok. I hade a great kale salad and guacomole and OMG the corn chips.
I had energy soup that was delicious something I wish I could order from somewhere everyday.
Now her desserts will rock your world but some do have honey. I sampled the apple pie and I have travelled all over the world and every place I stop I go to "the" raw restaurant in town and this is simply the best I have had, very simple buttery curst with a perfectly spiced apple and raisin filling with the best cream on top I have tasted. I also tried the coconut strawberry chocolate cake (OMG) it was like a big layered macaroon with each flavor pleasantly complimenting each other and last but not least the carob mint cake which had frosting I could literally want to speard on everything I eat LOL and a great texture.
Once again the staff were very nice and helpful.
I also purchased some kale chips I have yet to sample.
So the moral of the story is try, try again LOL
