This place is unique, inexpensive and very tasty! Located downtown and not a chain (go across the street for same old thing), Chicory is a lovely and refreshing surprise in culinary delights. Whatever you are hungry for you can find it here. It is my...More

My family (including parents and children) made an impromptu stop here on our way home from Thanksgiving. We thought it was just a cute little coffee shop until we went inside and saw the extensive menu! Half of us are vegetarians, so we were happy...More

It is NOLA themed but heavily reliant on being a coffee shop. I thought that jambalaya was too soggy. Gumbo is a soup but jambalaya shouldn't be. The shrimp po'boy had a great remoulade sauce and enough lettuce/slaw/pickled stuff so that the shrimp didn't fit...More

Wonderful coffees, Fish Po'Boy, soups, quiche, but mostly the awesome Beignets!!!!! Took my Mom for lunch and they have a nice relaxing atmosphere. Just an all around great place in downtown South Bend!

This is an order-at-the-counter place, fast paced and busy. Varied menu, tasty food. The Bloody Mary bar was very popular. Four stars instead of five because they did not have gluten free options. Not your typical breakfast cafe!

Visited Chicory Cafe on a friend's recommendation. Was not disappointed. Enjoyed the muffuletta on our first visit. I actually preferred the olive salad to what I had at the Cochon Butcher in NOLA. The beignet are close to Cafe du Monde, but not quite there....More

We found ourselves in downtown South Bend unexpectedly on a sleepy August Sunday afternoon. The place has a New Orleans theme. I've been forced to stop eating mac & cheese due to a lactose intolerance. I was very happy to see a vegan version -...More

I know that Chicory Cafe had applied for a liquor license but I don't think they have it yet.
