  • Tues-Sun 8 a.m. - 3 p.m.
It would be hard not to love Kitchen Mouse, a café in an old Highland Park storefront that does the shabby/cute/almost vintage thing very, very well. All the food starts out vegan (and most of it gluten-free), but you have the option to add eggs to any dish. They also use regular milk (organic, of course) for their coffee drinks. Kitchen Mouse serves breakfast and lunch and dinner on weekdays until 8 p.m. The spot has always excelled at the kind of healthy, flavor-driven vegetarian food that's hard to achieve without copious use of fake meat (which it doesn't rely on heavily) and it gives one of the more interesting meat-free dinner options in town.
