Imagine Vegan Cafe Restaurant Review: This welcoming, family-friendly vegan café is located inside a converted historic Cooper-Young district home with various rooms in the house serving as individual dining spaces. Owners Adam and Kristie Jeffrey label their plant-based “meat” dishes with such words as “chicken” or “beef.” But not so fast: Everything served at Imagine Vegan Café is made without animal products --- think seitan-based flank steak. The most popular item may be the vegan cheese sticks, hot and gooey fried mozzarella sticks, or one of the vegan-cheese pizzas piled high with plant-based pepperoni, pineapple, and all sorts of vegetables. There are also plenty of selections for those on gluten-free diets. A large dessert display case and cooler boasts vegan Key lime pie and coconut cream pie, while the front counter is filled with vegan cupcakes, layer cakes, brownies, and cookie sandwiches by baker Stephanie Roy of Swell Baked Goods. Imagine serves a wide selection of high-quality brews. Patrons may bring their own wine for a $3 corkage fee.
