Imagine, it’s a Sunday morning. You’re hungry. You don’t want to get ready and stumble around your kitchen to prepare a meal. So what do you do? You put some pants on and goto brunch! If you’re in Cleveland, there is no shortage of amazing places to eat brunch — even if you’re vegan!
I recently went to brunch at Townhall on W. 25th St.for the first time. Townhall is a popular bar and restaurant in a ‘hip and up and coming’ area of town, on the same block as the historic West Side Market. Their menu is full of designated vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options and includes a variety of local ingredients. As an added bonus, the restaurant is in an old renovated warehouse space and is warm and welcoming with open brick walls and a cozy patio!
Each Saturday and Sunday, Townhall serves brunch from 9am – 2pm, and I had heard nothing but good things. As soon as I sat down, I knew what I wanted to order—a vegan crepe! They have a build your own crepe bar which includes a traditional crepe option and a buckwheat vegan crepe batter! You simply tell your server that you’d like a crepe and you get a ticket. Once you’re ready to eat, you walk near the back bar and head to the crepe station. You simply hand the chef your ticket and pick out your toppings. There are a variety of sweet and savory toppings to choose from that come from a rotating menu like strawberries, bananas, and dark chocolate to savory items like grilled peppers and onions, mushrooms, arugula, and vegan cheese! I opted for a savory crepe stuffed full of peppers, onions, arugula, jalapeños, and mozzarella Daiya.
Just look at how awesome this crepe looks! The photo doesn’t do it justice. And for $7 per crepe, it was such a deal! I urge you to give brunch at Townhall a try, if for nothing more than to give the crepe bar a chance. You won’t regret it!
Cheers! Happy brunching!
