About Nature Yoga Sanctuary

Nature Yoga Sanctuary has existed in their Oak Park space since 2004. They aim to provide a safe, welcoming experience for visitors to the studio, the retail shop, and the cafe. You’ll only find vegan and cruelty-free items for sale. Nature Yoga Sanctuary strives to serve the community through accessible yoga classes and healthy, nourishing meals.

Food and Drink Menus

The cafe’s menu features a variety of nutritious grain bowls, sandwiches, Belgian waffles, drinks, and ice cream. The Nature Bowland Sanctuary Bowls are light but definitely filling. If you’re in the mood for something heartier, check out the rich Deluxe Grilled Cheese, featuring vegan mozzarella cheese, seitan bacon, and tomato on whole wheat bread. The must-try item though is the Waffle and a Scoop, a big Belgian waffle topped with powdered sugar, whipped cream, and ice cream.

The kitchen is willing to accommodate food preferences and allergies. If you ask the staff, they’ll be more than happy to point you towards the gluten-free items. Note that most of their items are free of garlic and onion in accordance with the sanctuary’s yogic diet, but you won’t even notice. Their items are delicious and full of flavor!


The interior of Nature Yoga Sanctuary Cafe is modern and welcoming. The space has a clean, minimalist vibe with a light, neutral color palette and exposed overhead mechanical ducts. With a full floor-to-ceiling glass storefront, the cafe is filled with daylight, and it would make a great space to relax in with a cup of tea, or to get a quick work session in. Note that they’re closed on Mondays.

This is just one of many wonderful dining options we have in the Oak Park area. We would love to show you more! Please contact us today to find out more about our wonderful community.
