While not outside Chicago, the Oasis Cafe is definitely off the beaten path. It is on Wabash Avenue, just north of Madison. However, it is "hidden" at the back of a jewelry store. The food is outstanding and since it is middle eastern there are lots of vegetarian/vegan options. The falafel sandwich is outstanding and the hummus is really good as well. They have limited seating and it fills up during lunch.

Yes, what do you mean by "outside of the general chicago area"? Lake Forest? Springfield?

Far north of the city (Rogers Park, almost to Evanston) is the Heartland Cafe, which has vegetarian and vegan selections.

Borrowed Earth Cafe in Downers Grove is awesome, vegan and everything is raw.

I'm not a vegan, but saw this post and had to comment. My boss and his wife are vegan. I went into Chicago a few weeks ago with him and stopped for food. We stopped at The Handlebar and had some amazing food. It's not off the beaten path, but it's great food.

The next time you are in Arlington Heights check out Chowpatti.

They wont win any awards for atmosphere, but the food is very good if you enjoy more international style vegan.
