We’re glad the South Side Walnut Cafe (and the original Walnut Cafe) have reopened, offering socially distanced dine-in service for breakfast and lunch, as well as to-go offerings. The vegan and vegetarian options at the Walnut are excellent, and the meatless Sloppy Joe we ordered on a recent visit was no exception. Made from smoky tempeh, well-spiced veggie burger and bright, tangy barbecue sauce, the sandwich was satisfying and the cleanest-tasting Sloppy Joe we’ve ever had. Order with your choice of side — we upgraded to the crispy breakfast potatoes.
