There aren't many restaurants dedicated solely to vegan/vegetarian food here in the state of Iowa, but if you want the best of the best, you don't have to travel far!

According to a new article from Love Food, Cedar Rapids is home to the best vegetarian/vegan restaurant in the whole state. It's called Rawlicious, and it's located in the NewBo District at 1101 3rd Street SE. The article reads:

"Vegan, gluten free and delicious – that's the promise at this raw vegan café in Cedar Rapids. Rawlicious is run by husband-and-wife team Jessica and Tony, and their menu is filled with goodness, from their Not Tuna Sliders with pickled onions and salad to their veggie sausage and sweet potato burrito. Best of all are the desserts, though. Sweet-toothed diners can feast on everything from cheesecakes to chocolate cake."

Rawlicious first opened in Cedar Rapids in 2017 and has been serving up healthy food ever since. Their website reads:

"Many people want to eat healthy food but struggle to enjoy it. We believe that when you use quality ingredients, prepare it with passion, and sprinkle it with love, you’ll create a delicious dish that will have you begging for seconds."


Some of the items on the Rawlicious menu include smoothies and smoothie bowls, house-made kombucha, wraps, salads, eggplant bacon, nachos, crepes, cheesecake, cookies, donuts, and more, all made with vegan ingredients. The restaurant is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. You can checkout the website HERE for more information.
