Love, love, love - Edit

This place is fantastic; I've never been disappointed by anything I've gotten. Every time I visit family in PA, I make a trip there. I've even gotten non-veg friends hooked. Desserts are amazing.

Pros: great food

Love it - from out of town - Edit

We are visiting Boardman for the weekend for a reunion. I took my parents to The Flaming Ice Cube and it was great! They are not vegan, so I was able to introduce them to how great vegan food can really be! We had (and shared) the hummus veggie wrap, asian veggie wrap, trio plate (hummus, chickenless salad, & buffalo dip), and the two special soups: sweet potato peanut butter and mushroom almond. Everything was so tasty and the staff was friendly. We will be back next time we're in the area.

Pros: Great value, Tasty food , Friendly staff

Cons: No recycling

Good find for the area - Edit

There aren't many vegetarian/vegan places in the Youngstown area. This was the first we came across after we moved here, and we were very pleased. Over time, we have visited on numerous occasions, enjoying burgers and other savory food items; various smoothies; many of the extensive number of baked goods; and even some of the grocery items they sell at the register area. We have found the Hula Burger and the "Chicken" Artichoke sandwiches to be our favorites. The Buffalo Dip is also really good. And it is hard to choose just one dessert as a favorite - though the Molten Chocolate Lava cake would have to be near the top of any list. We would recommend this place hands down.

Pros: Extensive menu, Vegan oasis in area of few veggie places, Wonderful vegan baked goodies

Cons: Sometimes an issue with the service, Tendency to run out of some ingredients, Closed on Sundays

Great, cheap, and vegan, in Boardman! - Edit

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

chomp - Edit

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 - Edit

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

Pretty Good - Edit

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.

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

ok, well the flaming ice cube is simply amazing! My fiance and I travel to find the best vegan places and we've definitely found it here! 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!!


Cons: NONE

Nice alternative to chain restaurants - Edit

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
