We really enjoyed our lunch at this small restaurant during our recent visit to the Lincoln Home National Historic Site. The owners are a delightful couple that made us feel like guests in their home. The buffet had many vegan options available for a very reasonable price of $8. I particularly liked their homemade hummus.
Even thought they served meat I believe this is of economic necessity in this mid-sized Midwest town. At their cash register they had a brochure on the benefits of being vegan and information on how to learn more.
We walked to this restaurant from the historic site - it was about 9 blocks - and stopped at the Elijah Iles House on our way back. If walking that far is something you rather not do and you parked in the lot on 7th St, directly across from the Lincoln Visitor Center, you may want to drive to the restaurant. There is plenty of on-street parking near it and with the pre-paid parking ticket you buy when you entered the parking lot, you can return after lunch. That's assuming the number of visitors are few enough that the lot will still have parking places when you return.
Cons: Serve meat
