Iguana Cafe…with an actual Iguana…(3.5/5 Stars)

Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on May 7, 2009

After a big work event, we realized there was no leftover food for us so a bunch of my coworkers and I drove over to Iguana Cafe, located at 517-19 N. Halsted Street, in the Fulton River District.  Now, I have gone by Iguana Cafe a ton of times but this was the first time I’ve actually gone inside.  The restaurant/lounge/internet cafe/other uses has a big open feel to it with plenty of seating and as soon as you walk in, you’re greeted with a refrigeration case full of different cakes.  We were immediately sat and our waitress was very nice and attentive.

I ordered the Italian sandwich which is made with prosciutto ham, provolone, tomatoes, green peppers, oregano and olive oil served on Italian bread with a side of potato salad ($6.00).  Oh, and I also ordered a huge slice of chocolate chip cheesecake ($4.00).  The sandwich was delicious but being an always hungry guy, I wished it was bigger and had more of everything on the sandwich.

Jon ordered the chicken pesto sandwich, I believe Michal ordered the Greek sandwich, Zev ordered one of Iguana Cafe’s crepes, and Mary ordered the smoked salmon sandwich.  All sandwiches were basically around the same price as mine and everyone liked them.  Iguana Cafe also serves alcohol which is great with the food and they have great hours too.  The earliest Iguana Cafe opens up is 7am and they are even open till 2am on certain days of the week.  Check out Iguana Cafe’s website for a full menu and a list of their hours.
