Great, cheap, and vegan, in Boardman!

Posted on 05 / 10 / 2014

Who'd have thunk it? After having enjoyed the Cleveland location of Flaming Icecube a number of times, I was pleased to check out the Boardman location.

The local area is pretty charmless: Boardman-Canfield Road is many heavily trafficked miles of strip mall. So Flaming Icecube is a great respite, and well worth the trip down from Youngstown.

The food is cheap and delicious, there is an extensive vegan menu to choose from, the people are friendly, seating was easy. What's not to like? This is a super welcome option in a surprising suburban strip mall.

I had the Western Burger, and they were out of the Daiya cheddar, but it was very tasty with the Daiya mozzarella. The side potato salad needed a little salt, but it's far better to have to add it myself than have something come out oversalted.

It's a little weird that they have a chai with honey, and note that whole wheat breads *may* have honey: it's easy enough to source both of these without honey.

Just to note, the menus at both locations have exactly one item that is listed as gluten free, and the word "gluten" doesn't appear anywhere on either website.

I'll absolutely be back!

Pros: cheap & tasty, extensive VEGAN menu, one of few vegan options nearby

flaming ice cube is a decent vegan place. they have a choice few really great items on their menu, but most of the dishes are really repetitive. the people that work there are very nice and knowledgeable of the menu. however, don't go there in a rush. most of the time there is spent waiting. their desserts are to die for, unless you're under a time constraint.

Great find in depressed Youngstown area

Posted on 05 / 26 / 2010

I have to say that I was quite impressed with finding a place like this in such a depressed area as Youngstown (Boardman). The food was great, and the help quite friendly. Every town needs a restaurant like this one.

Pros: Vegan!!!
Cons: None

Well, we thought it was good but not perfect. i did like the very thick veggie burgers but i suspect that they are made of TVP which is not that good for you. Also the burger rolls are kind of like commercial rolls possibly made with wheat flour which i don't believe is good for you. i feel they can improve on the rolls to make them more natural tasting instead of commercial tasting. But maybe because of the area they are trying to make them commercial-tasting. i got the Asian Wrap that someone on here said was their favorite but i thought it was just ok. Also the Peanut Butter/Choc. cake could have been tastier, as well as the hot chocolate. Even still, when i am travelling thru Ohio again i would stop there because it's the only vegetarian restaurant around, it seems. It's good enough but could be better. They also ought to make everything gluten-free. The atmosphere is nice.

Pros: Atmosphere, Prices., They are trying.
Cons: Could taste better., Could use healthier ingredients., Serve Gluten rolls and cakes.

I went to the Flaming Ice Cube yesterday for the first time and i am beyond impressed! The staff was friendly and helpful and the food was amazing! The house salad is divine. The desserts are to yummy and we got smoothies to go and it was like summer in a cup. I also love the store right next to it, their are all kinds of odds and ends for sale. I would definatly reccomend this place to anyone who loves good food, wants a good atmosphere and wants to keep money in their pocket! (everything is well priced!)

Pros: great food, well priced, cool store

Pros: Fresh juice bar, delicious food, great gifts
Cons: none

Although my entire family is not vegetarian, we can agree on one thing -- best "burgers" anywhere. Food is terrific.

They have homemade veggie burgers, soups, awesome salads, vegan coffee, vegan desserts,and all kind of wraps! Also it is available for take out!! It's all non-smoking and they also have a store which sells incense, candles, burts bees and natural products along with some vegan/vegetarian food. They are always playing peaceful music and the place always smell wonderful. It's very clean and a relaxing place to eat. GO THERE!!

Nice alternative to chain restaurants

The Flaming Ice Cube is a nice place to get salads, wraps, soups and more, plus a selection of teas and juices. My personal favorite is the Asian veggie wrap, served with the side of the day and some delicious plum sauce. Many selections are made fresh, and some are commercial vegetarian foods. The primary drawback for me would be the amount of sodium found in the commercial products.

Pros: Food quality, Inexpensive, Nice atmosphere
Cons: Sodium content
