"Be Veg! Go Green! Save the Planet!"

Loving Cafe is such an interesting place. Not only is this all-vegan restaurant in the unlikely town of Ft. Wayne, Indiana, but the literature, television station (singular), and advertisements on the wall are the most pro-vegan, pro-earth thing you'll see in probably 100 miles.
The food is semi-typical Asian fare: spring rolls, mock chicken, noodles, rice dishes, mock pot stickers, and so forth. A heavy focus on mock meat, but everything was prepared well and tasted great. The prices are reasonable and the service is good. A wealth of vegan drinks and smoothies are available, as well as cakes, cupcakes, and Love Force brand raw food bars. The restaurant is very clean, almost eerily so, and the staff was quite friendly.
But during your visit to Loving Cafe, you must spend a few minutes watching the large flat screen tv adorning the wall opposite the counter. The program, a constant airing of "Supreme Master TV" is the most unique thing in the whole restaurant. A combination of environmentalism, Buddhism (?), and vegan propaganda, it is both entrancing and shocking at the same time. There is much literature to accompany the messages provided on the station, which you can pick up at the restaurant. To prep (or intrigue) yourself, visit http://suprememastertv.com/.
In short, while the overall vibe and foundation of the restaurant may be a little beyond the pale, the food is great, and who can argue with promoting veganism? I recommend you check it out if you are in the area.
all-vegan!, tasty food, in ft. wayne
