In a Magical Land
Called Chicago

Once Upon A Time


Alice & Friends’ was founded by Alice Lee in 2001. A few years later, Alice passed the restaurant to her family and friends to pursue her vegan dream in Europe. The restaurant was then renamed Loving Hut. 

In 2015, her parents wanted to retire and decided to sell the business. We took over in 2016 and decided to bring back the name we loved: Alice & Friends Vegan Kitchen. With the support of our friends and YOU, we make our vegan dream come true everyday. 

As a vegan restaurant, we are on a mission to create a wonderland of flavorful vegan food. We want everyone to be able to enjoy flavorful, healthy, 100% vegan dishes.

Our lifestyle flows out of sincere respect for all living things and a desire to make as little impact as possible on our ecosystem.

We're Moving forward with Sustainable Practices

Customers can reuse their chili oil jar or bring it back for a refill and receive store credit.

Our customers are among the most informed and impactful eaters. This is why we have always been committed to implementing sustainable practices in our everyday operations.

How is Alice and Friends’ Making a Difference? 

Reduce Carbon Footprint – A vegan diet has the lowest carbon footprint, significantly reduces carbon emissions, and decreases waste byproducts that end up in our oceans.

Create Food from Scratch – Most of our menu items are made in-house. Making our dishes and desserts from scratch means less packaging and more fresh ingredients are used in our kitchen. Our recipes are purposely made without preservatives and GMO ingredients to maintain their nutritional value. 

Compost Food Waste – Every week, three 32-gallon lined totes are picked up from Alice & Friends’ by Collective Resource Compost for processing. Composting food waste creates healthy soil and reduces the production of methane gas. 
Use Eco-friendly Packaging – We have eliminated the use of plastic products by 90% in our restaurant. Our takeout containers and utensils are biodegradable. Additionally, we offer cash back to dine-in customers who bring their own containers to pack leftover food. 
Support Organizations – We regularly support organizations that align with our values. Over the years, we have donated to The Environmental Defense Fund, Have a Heart Farm, and Lulu’s Locker Rescue. These associations help improve our earth for future generations and advocate for the wellbeing of animals. 
Wonderland of Vegans, Wonderland of Flavors.
