When they’re good they’re good

Always check their Facebook page as the menu changes everyday.

It can be pricey, but overall solid.

Note: It’s an all vegan restaurant, BUT there are some of the snacks (that they purchase, AKA not made there) that are not vegan - be cautious and read the ingredients to be sure.

Pros: When their food is good, it’s pretty good., You can pre-order for some holidays

Cons: Can be expensive, It’s local, so the hours are short, Sometimes the day/week is cancelled - check on FB!

Just curious what you saw there that wasn't vegan? I've been going to Ely's for years.. I would imagine if there was something there that wasn't vegan, it may have been a mistake and worth letting the staff know

I'll edit to be more specific in the review - there's a brand they sold their that wasn't vegan (it has milk).

It was one of those granola-esque bars, looking rectangular in shape.

An Ohio staple

Ely's has been around for a very long time and they know what they're doing. Great food that I keep coming back for. I was really excited to see they have expanded their grocery section as well and have some really cool vegan things for sale

Pros: Amazing

Their vibe is nice andfood was really tasty and nourishing ☺️
Had the fried egg sandwich which had fresh veggies, avocado and coconut bacon inside! 💯
A street corn cup, a blueberry muffin and dumplings were also delicious.

Pros: Fresh, Tasty, Great vibe

A HappyCow Surprise

I was pleasantly surprised to find this gem of a place while visiting friends. The menu is a little different every day which makes each visit unique. We were in Ohio 6 days and stopped here 3 times.

Nourishing and Tasty

Changing daily selection of items boxed and ready to go for takeout. The spring rolls were our favorites! They also have 2 small tables and a selection of pre-packaged vegan snack foods for sale. Only downside was the restroom was closed and I had to go elsewhere to wash my hands.

Nice, little spot in Boardman

Ely's To Go is a cute spot in Boardman. And as the only fully vegan place in the area, it's a great option. Small but mighty! The menu does change daily so you might want to follow them on Instagram if you don't want to be surprised.

Such a great find

Thank goodness for Ely's! There aren't a lot of vegan options in the area, so having one place where we knew everything was ok to eat was great. The Chick-Fil-Ely's sandwich was delicious, and the ratatouille lunchbox was really light and refreshing. Really, really good stuff!

Pros: Everything is vegan

Cons: Takeout only

The BEST vegan food in Youngstown area

Very delicious vegan food! I was there August 6, 2019 and had their red lentil soup, maybe the best soup I've ever tasted. Also had a Vietnamese Pho noodle soup, tofu submarine sandwich, savory croissant, and sweet muffin. Everything super delicious. I was there about 10am, shortly after they opened, and there were a dozen people behind me a minute after I got in line. Obviously a very popular place. Most people seemed to take out the food. It's all in compostable take-out containers, but I elected the option to heat my selections with the microwave and eat at one of the nice wooden tables there. I wish I had known about this place since it opened, but I'll be going there whenever I'm in Youngstown. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Vegan Take Out & Mini Market

I finally got to try Ely's To Go! They currently offer online ordering aside from calling or just stopping by. Every day is a different but still a very thoughtful menu. I love how they use local, fresh, and in season produce and herbs! I tried the summer vegetable tart, which was delicious and reminded me of the garden! The broccoli mac & cheese was pretty good too. I can't wait to try more from Ely's! The mini market inside is cool. I didn't get to look around much, but they have frozen items, snacks, candles, aprons, and other things. I did get a pack of frozen vegan bacon to cook with. I'll be back to Ely's soon!

Pros: Local & seasonal fruits & veggies used, Sells hard to find vegan items, Containers, cups, & utensils all compostable

What a find!

We were passing through town on a road trip and had no expectation of finding a vegan restaurant in this area. This place is fantastic. Everything is ready to go, though they have a microwave there if you want to heat it up, and a very small seating area. The food was excellent--especially the mushroom burger. One of the best burgers I've ever had. Really great that it's open early (8:00am)--it's so hard to find vegan food in the morning. Highly recommend!

Cute and cozy take away with a mini market

Cute and cozy take away with a limited but interesting and delicious selection. There's a daily rotating menu, check their website. They also have a mini market with a violife cheeses, unreal chocolate, baking mixes, and a fridge full of mock meats and other unique vegan products that are often hard to find.

Be aware that they do not serve hot food, but they do have seating and a microwave available.

Love Ely's

I was very surprise to find this gem while travelling for work. Thank you Happy Cow for showing me that Ely's was only a mile away from my hotel. Love their popcorn chicken and everything else. I was here everyday the three days i was in Boardman, OH.

Best Lunch in Town

I always love going to Ely's, because I know that the food is going to be fresh and taste great. I love that they source from farms and really care about the environment. You can trust that everything is 100% vegan, so if you are vegan or vegetarian, you can simply order what looks good. This is also a place where you can find delicious vegan treats and snacks.

Pros: Rotating menu (daily), Farm-source and fresh, Amazing Smoothies

I LOVE Ely's!!

Ely's is my favorite place to go! Any time I am in the area I have to go! Everything is delicious and they always have gluten free options for me to eat. If it was any closer to me I would probably eat there every day!

Pros: Delicious!, Great Variety, Gluten Free Optiona

Cons: Little expensive, but worth it., Not open late., Not open on weekends.

Wonderful place!

There are very few completely vegetarian options in the Youngstown area, but even if there were, this place would still be the best. It is a treasure! Very tasty food, different themes each day, and a very responsible approach to environmentalism and reducing cruelty in consumption. Plus, the spring rolls are unbelievable! We have liked everything we have had here, from burgers and sandwiches, to the sides and the baked goods. It is disappointing through to get there and find that they have already run out of a certain item, or to find that something you had there before is not offered that day. The menu rotates, and is set each day with just a few items. Everything is ready made to pick up and either eat in or carry out. It is all fresh and tasty! Would definitely recommend it to both vegetarians and omnivores alike.

Pros: Fresh ingredients, Great Taste!, Nice bake goods

Cons: Running out of items, Closes at 4 each day, Not open at all on weekends
