Loving Hut Vegan Cafe

Loving Hut Vegan Cafe is another one of those places I've driven by THOUSANDS of times but never stopped. It's so close to my house - but it's vegan - and that's not always on the top of my list for hunger desires!
I love the sign - all the hearts are so cute. The menu is pretty expansive - you order at the counter so it's good to look online before you go.

The menu is printed up for you to review and on the wall - much of the food is visible in the cases as well. They also have specials. It's a very bright and happy place.

Raw cheesecake - we were too full to try it - but it did look colorful and fun. Who doesn't want to eat purple food?

We each got a side- Julie tried their split pea soup which was made with tapioca instead of cream. She really enjoyed it and said you couldn't tell a bit of difference. I had the vegan macaroni and cheese and it was fantastic! ($3 each)

I went for the grilled veggie panini ($6) - it has vegetables and vegan cheese. It was pretty good. The cheese doesn't taste like cheese - but it's not bad. I enjoyed the veggies. I think a lot of their menu has "fake meat" rather than vegetables - which seems odd to me. I liked this although after half - the taste of the cheese was getting to me a bit.

Julie got the plain grilled cheese ($3) and liked it pretty well but agreed the cheese doesn't really taste like cheese.

Why Should You Go? I think it's fun to try - I do remember trying something one other time that was akin to General Tso's "Chicken". I liked it a lot when it was hot - once it was warm - not as good. I think it's definitely worth stopping again and trying something else. I liked what I got but didn't love it.
