Vegan jambalaya! - Edit

I highly recommmend their vegan jambalaya and the chili con queso. I could barely handle the heat myself, but it was all super delicious. Staff was super friendly, atmosphere was dim but charming. They also have outdoor seating when the weather permits. I will definitely have to visit again for Sunday brunch!

Hidden Gem - Edit

I tried the vegan chili con queso and the vegan jambalaya. Both were awesome and carnivore approved! I had leftovers of the jambalaya for a few days. Great service as well.

All that and dessert too! - Edit

Several vegan options. The pretty patio surrounded by flowers is a lovely respite in nice weather. I had the vegan chili dog, which was vey good. I skipped the cheese as I'm not a fan of Daiya. Would like a different cheese option. Had vegan cheesecake for dessert, which was a real treat. You just can't get vegan dessert in Cincinnati, so two thumbs up for that. Tip: If you order iced tea, ask for minimal ice, or you may as well get water.

Spicy but GOOD! - Edit

The family went here for my husbands birthday this May, we had never been. Got the vegan chili con queso to start with, I got the chili dog entree, hubs got the vegan jambalaya... it was all so good. I will say though - it's SPICY! But that's bc it's Cajun, it's not a negative by any means, just be aware if you're a spice wimp! We brought our own cake but we're told they serve vegan cheesecake slices... next time for sure! They have lots of options here, can't wait to try everything! Especially vegan brunch.

Pros: Hearty, spicy vegan food!, Many options

SO GOOD!! Best vegan food I've had in the area - Edit

My husband's from Cincinnati, so we come to visit often, and I also thought I had perfected a vegan version of Cincinnati chili. I was wrong. Allyn's version is way better!!

There are absolutely tons of vegan options on the menu. I ended up trying both the Cincinnati coney (vegan hot dog with Cincinnati chili) which was messy and completely delicious, as well as the vegan jambalaya, which was OUTSTANDING. That jambalaya was flavorful and "meaty" with different types of veg meats and warm and satisfying.

I didn't end up having room for dessert, but I appreciated that they had vegan dessert options to boot!

Apparently the owner of the restaurant went vegan personally a few years ago, which is why everything is so vegan-friendly.

Also appreciated that it was relatively large with lots of drink options. It would be a great place to come with a group.

I would absolutely come back here the next time (and every time) I'm back in Cincinnati!

Pros: Variety of vegan options, Tastiness, Quirky decor

If you like super spicy food, this is your place! - Edit

My boyfriend ordered the veggie burger & fries and did not like the burger and the fries were bland. I ordered the vegan queso for appetizer and liked it alot. The veggie chili salad with vegan ranch chipotle was too spicy for me to finish. I then ordered vegan cheesecake to cool my mouth and it tasted like cardboard. I would opt for green dog cafe across the street over allyns for veg options.

Pros: chili con queso with daiya

Cons: spice level
