Bite Cafe

International in Wicker Park, Bucktown & Ukrainian Village

Join the shaggy rockers reading graphic novels and eating cinnamon streusel French toast for breakfast, grilled Gouda-and-white-cheddar sandwiches for lunch or ribeye with fried plantains for dinner. Many dishes can be made vegan on request. The small room is industrial-chic, with sky-blue chairs around plain wood tables, and funky artwork peppering exposed-brick walls.

Up until 8:30pm, you can bring booze over from the Empty Bottle bar/music venue next door to accompany meals (or BYOB with no corkage fee).
