One of my daughters is a vegetarian. When I ask for ideas of where to eat out, she frequently requests “someplace vegetarian.”
“Is there such a place in Fort Wayne?” I asked.
Well. She did her homework, and indeed there is. Not just vegetarian, but vegan even (for you meat-eaters out there, vegan means that one doesn’t eat or use animal products. So, not only meat is out, but also eggs, cheese, milk, etc).
Recently, we headed to the Loving Cafe in our fair city.
Once inside, we each grabbed a menu. Having tried to cook vegan for a very short time when my daughter wanted to “go vegan” a few years back, I knew that it was a challenge. So I was happy to see such a wide and varied menu. There were lots of sandwiches, soups, and entrees. We placed our orders at the counter and found a seat in the light and cheery dining area.
About ten minutes later, our food began arriving.
My daughter had a grilled tortilla — complete with vegan cheese, vegan butter, vegan nuggets, vegenaise (no, I am not making this up!), and spinach. So good, you can see, that she couldn’t wait to take a photo before grabbing a bite.
We found the ambience of the restaurant to be pleasant. Other customers chatted quietly around us. Service was polite and friendly.
Most entrees are priced between $8-10, and I believe the menu items and prices are the same for dinner as for lunch.
We support Loving Cafe in their goal of helping people eat better and healthier with organic, plant-based vegan food. You may be pleasantly surprised by just how good it tastes. Next time you’re in Fort Wayne, give Loving Cafe a try. I predict you’ll be glad you did.
