Welcome to Heartland Cafe

The Heartland Cafe has been serving up good vegetarian food for our community since 1976.  We invite you to explore our world.  The restaurant has inside dining and a wonderful patio during warm weather.  A cozy restaurant bar is also available for seating and dining with the full menu.  Check out our natural food market on the way in to the restaurant.  You can find organic produce, direct from farm dairy, eggs, meat and other items.  Products made in Chicago and the midwest line our shelves.  You can place to go orders in the store, including our full line-up of custom juices and smoothies, made with all organic produce!  Or walk around the corner and come see a show in our live music venue!  Open mic on Mondays, spoken word open mic on wednesdays and shows the rest of the week.
