This tiny restaurant has been serving affordable, healthy, earth- and animal-friendly food since 2008. Strong Hearts Cafe is a strictly vegan establishment that also works to sustain the environment (no styrofoam or plastic and they compost) and their community (they use locally grown produce sourced directly from farmers).
Strong Hearts Cafe is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, seven days a week. Their menu is casual, but fulfilling. Breakfast has an assortment of tofu scrambles, pancakes, and waffles. While lunch and dinner focus on hearty sandwiches and salads. And for those with other dietary needs, gluten free options are clearly labeled on the menu.
Beyond the mostly savory main menu, Strong Hearts Cafe has a big menu of sweets and snacks. Their milkshake selection is beyond impressive with dozens of options. It includes everything from the Farm Sanctuary (caramel cookie dough) to the Albert Einstein (pumpkin espresso!). Plus there are slices of cake, cupcakes, whoopie pies, cheesecake, brownies, cookies, and even vegan ‘Twinkies.’
To accompany the desserts, they also have a coffeehouse range of beverages, and serve only 100% organic and fair trade coffees and teas.
