I figured today was the perfect day to blog about The Loving Cafe in Fort Wayne, Indiana, since I will be stuck in my house due to inclement weather. Taking a look back on our fall road trip, I knew I had to dedicate a post about The Loving Cafe which is a 100% vegan restaurant in Fort Wayne.
The cafe was part of a plaza area that was pretty nice and had parking directly in front of the establishment. The food was fast and fresh and full of flavor! Hubby started off with a salad that had a nice creamy ginger type dressing.
We decided to split some loaded fries. There was a bean chili and vegan cheese they topped the plate with as you can see. I decided to opt for the Mushroom Pistachio Soup and it was 'out of this world'! Hubby chose the Cabbage soup and he said it was some of the best he ever had when it came to Cabbage soup...vegan or non-vegan!
I did sample some of his soup and it was darn tasty! It was sweet AND savory. I was surprised by the sweet and then realized they used raisins on the soup! Clever!
Everything on the menu was clearly described and there were many creative dishes I was thrilled to see! Ones I would have never assumed would be offered. I took a few photos of the menus because I wanted to remember the food combos and ideas to see if I could make a version of some of them at home.
Some of them, I was a little afraid to try, because I thought they might taste too much like meat. They seemed to do a lot with vegan shrimp which intrigued me but I couldn't seem to bring myself to try them at first day we were there. I'm betting if I lived full-time near this place I would eventually have to try everything on their menu!
I loved the color of the cafe dining area! The light fixtures were nice, too! The prices seemed to be right in line with other non-veggie offerings in the area. I'm so glad we were able to visit The Loving Cafe in Fort Wayne, IN, it was a great experience!
The loaded fries look great, and both soups sound like they would be perfect for the weather we're having!ReplyDelete
They were really great soups! Very unique!Delete
I loved the Loving Hut we went to in Florida. It is a nice chain.ReplyDelete
I think the Loving Hut is a chain (altho I have never been to one) and this one is Loving Cafe and I think the only location. Regardless, I'm super excited to have been able to stop in when we were in town!Delete
It is an international chain, but each store is a little unique.Delete
Ahhh got ya! Cool!!!!Delete
Oh that's so intriguing! I just made a pistachio soup that I'll blog about soon, but mushroom pistachio sounds like some other kind of amazing!ReplyDelete
I'll have to look for your Pistachio Soup! Sounds great!Delete
Those loaded fries look so good, I am all about potatoes!ReplyDelete
And the crispier the better!Delete
It all sounds great, especially the fries - yum!ReplyDelete
It was a LARGE plate, too!Delete
What delicious meals! The loaded fries look decadent and delicious and the soups look amazing! Mushroom pistachio sounds like such an interesting and delicious combination!ReplyDelete
It was so savory and creamy! I'd love to have it again OR find a recipe close to it to make it at home!Delete
You didn't have the Thai curry? I wonder what that is like. Looks like a good place to dine.ReplyDelete
I was tempted tho! There were so many lovely items on their menu!Delete
