What You'll Get

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 $20, you get $40 worth of urban comfort fare and drinks at Lavomatic Cafe 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 tater tots with chives, cheddar, parmesan, and ranch ($7.33). Warm up with tomato bisque ($5.35) or a fish sandwich with gruyere on an onion bun ($9.40). Refresh the palate with a fusion of flavors thanks to the pesto penne with kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, and tomato confit ($15.16) or smoked pork chops with Sheltowee Farm mushrooms and red wine caramel ($20.47). Sharable sides such as cornbread ($2.92) and onion straws ($3.64) 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.


CityBeat lists Lavomatic Cafe as a critic's pick. Veggie Option and wine me, dine me have also featured the eatery. Forty Yelpers give Lavomatic Cafe a three-star average.

  • Whilst the appealing presentation adds to the overall experience at Lavomatic, the real showstopper is the food, which is exquisite. – Veggie Option
  • The starters are consistently good, wine list is good, dinner entrees and specials are great. I reminisce about the ribeye special with root veggies--sigh. Desserts are good and well portioned. – Anpan W., Yelp, 8/25/10
