The Flaming Ice Cube
The hybrid vegan café and gift shop deals in good vibes, whether they take the form of sandwiches and soups made from scratch, eco-fashions, or candles that both soothe the senses and keep away ghosts that are wearing flammable bed sheets. After tasting the zing of a spicy plum vinaigrette or biting into organic sprouted-grains bread at the Compassionate Café, guests can browse a selection of eclectic wares. Vegan jewelry sparkles with gemstones alongside Dead Sea mineral soaps and colorful socks made from recycled cotton, which are ideal for keeping a giant caterpillar warm.
The Boardman location also delves into the world of knitting with a lounge where needle artists can pick up skeins of silk or bamboo yarn, sink into armchairs, and clack away until they have a spider web to sleep in that night.
The Flaming Ice Cube
Ohioans don't have to go to all the way to New York or California to find one of the best meatless burgers in the United States. They can instead head over to The Flaming Ice Cube, located in Cleveland and Boardman, to try one of VegNews magazine's picks for top veggie burgers in the country. The magazine called the vegan cafe's vegan burger—with its housemade grilled soy-based patty and combination of mustard, ketchup, and vegan mayo—both "stellar" and "scrumptious."
The Flaming Ice Cube's other housemade vegan dishes vie for diner's affections, too, including 2–3 soups made fresh each day, paninis, whole-fruit smoothies, and organic quinoa bowls.
