Cooking in the laundry room is an activity marred by unavoidable clothing stains and funky-tasting, dryer-mixed salads. Leave laundry-based cuisine to the pros with today’s Groupon. For $10, you get $25 worth of urban comfort fare and drinks at Lavomatic Cafe, located in OTR on Vine.

Setting up shop in a formerly run-down launderette, Lavomatic Cafe provides an opportunity to dine on hearty fare without attracting uncomfortable leers from surrounding shirt-folders. Charming exposed pipes and soft tones accentuate Lavomatic’s décor, which creates a perfect setting for sampling the establishment’s well-stocked wine bar. The menu offers a modest yet satisfying selection of comforting classics with a twist, like when grandma gets tipsy and mixes acids with bases. Start with small bites such as chicken lollipops with honey mustard, bourbon barbecue sauce, and spicy garlic sauce ($8.95) or tater tots with truffle, chive, bacon, and cheddar ($7.49). Warm up with tomato bisque and grilled cheese ($7.49) or a fish sandwich with fennel apple straw on rye ($11.49). Refresh the palate with a fusion of flavors thanks to the meatloaf cupcake with country green beans and mashed potatoes ($12.95) or a pork chop with mushroom hash and red-wine caramel ($18.95). Sharable sides such as cornbread ($3.25) and mac 'n' cheese ($6.95) are also available.

Like a classic car fitted with a plutonium-propelled flux capacitor, Lavomatic’s menu offers familiar options that stand the test of time or time-travelling taste critics. Dig into hearty foods that will warm the soul and plate, which will then be lovingly rinsed in a washing machine that will jostle and break it to pieces.


City Beat lists Lavomatic Cafe as a critic's pick. The Veggie Option and Wine Me, Dine Me have also featured the eatery:

  • Whilst the appealing presentation adds to the overall experience at Lavomatic, the real showstopper is the food, which is exquisite.– The Veggie Option *…I like the unfinished look. It makes me feel like Lavomatic is open to change and in constant motion. It makes it exciting -- this suggests I'm going to be surprised and kept on my toes over the long-term. – Lora Arduser, City Beat

Yelpers give Lavomatic Cafe four stars, and 71% of Urbanspooners recommend it:
