They have a nice mix of cooked food and raw food, both clearly labeled, and everything is vegan. We ordered the cooked reuben sandwich and the raw zucchini Alfredo, along with a fresh juice and two macaroons for dessert.
The reuben was extremely rich (as expected), with marinated seitan as the base, delicious tomato aioli, a small amount of Swiss Daiya, caramelized onion, sauerkraut and mustard. The zucchini alfredo was warmed (though not cooked) with sliced zucchini serving as the noodles and an Alfredo sauce made out of cashews, along with mushrooms and what appeared to be a generous portion of garlic. The macaroons were much larger than we expected and very cake-like.
There are lots of other options, raw and cooked, along with smoothies and appetizers—more than enough to warrant a return trip. The food was creative and healthy and we enjoyed the mix of cooked and raw choices.
The only downside for us is that we went on a Saturday evening and traffic was busy around the casino and parking was not cheap. We’re not as familiar with the Cleveland dining scene as Columbus or Detroit, and so if others have recommendations, we’d love to hear them. Helio Terra Vegan Café was a nice surprise and perhaps a model for a future business in NW Ohio.
