Last winter when we were living in South Dakota we had to travel to Minneapolis, MN. While there, we found the wonderful Cafe Lucé and I would love to share with you some of the awesome vegan food they have available. Cafe Lucé is an adorable restaurant that is very vegan friendly, like many restaurants in Minneapolis who proudly show when something is vegan on their menu. Cafe Lucé offers specific vegan meals but also does vegan on request and even gluten free if you desire that option as well. I honestly wish they would open a Cafe Lucé here in Utah because it was that good.
I have the photos of what we ordered but there were even more options that we did not get to try. They have vegan hoagies, salads, appetizers, and 4 vegan pizza’s to choose from! They will let you build your own pizza and have so many vegan options you could eat there for weeks without ordering the same thing. We went a little overboard with the food but there were 5 of us so we could order more than one thing.
The little kids had the traditional spaghetti topped with Diaya cheese melted perfectly and it was delicious (yes, I tried some)! For the 3 big people we ordered garlic cheese toast that they made up with small amount Diaya cheese an mixed in what I’m guessing was a vegan Parmesan but who knows, it was so good I could have just eaten that as my meal dipped in the wonderful marinara on the side.
Of course when you are ordering and your stomach is empty your eyes are big so we also ordered the Pizza Athena, veganized of course, this one is a Greek like pizza that has Kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, red onions, spinach, and without the feta cheese but Diaya added instead. It was quite scrumptious and the crust was amazing, slightly chewy but light and airy, yum! Then, because I knew I was going to review it (good excuse right!) I just HAD to order the vegan dessert, even though I could have exploded by that point. They had these sinful Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars that had granola and crispy rice cereal inside of them, that they then topped with chocolate syrup and some powdered sugar. UGH.
If you are passing through Minnesota check out one their many locations and eat up and if you are lucky enough to live there but have not been then GO!
