From My Menu

Chef Stephanie Izard reviews Smoked quail at Lula Café

"One time, I ordered this amazing smoked quail dish at Lula. Even though I was getting full from over-ordering (it's my M.O.), I couldn't stop eating it. Turns out those little birds are delicious when smoked. Plus, Lula's ambiance is always so cozy and welcoming."
Chef Duncan Biddulph reviews BLT & Caesar salad at Lula Café
$$ | Breakfast/Brunch, | Modern, | American
Logan Square

"You just can’t miss this combo from the cafe menu. Both of these dishes work due to impeccable sourcing: perfectly dressed baby romaine, crispy golden croutons, and pickled red onion. It’s a supreme salad."
Chef Justin Large reviews Lula '99 turkey sandwich at Lula Café

"I order this café menu standby almost every time I have lunch at Lula. It's comfort food from way back: avocado, sprouts, and chili aioli—a classic."

"Every Monday night, Lula offers a three-course farm dinner for just $34. It is always amazing. Sometimes it’s vegetarian, sometimes you’ll get seafood, but you can’t go wrong."

"This is an ever changing sandwich on Lula's brunch menu, but it's always delicious and somehow restorative and devastating at the same time. "
