Heavenly Goat Brewing Company
Offering dinner Wednesdays through Sundays, as well as lunch on Saturdays and Sundays, Heavenly Goat Brewing Company is an amazing brewery and restaurant.
It only uses organic, non-GMO, and antibiotic-free meats and locally sourced produce. All sauces, stocks, and dressings are made in house. Plus, all butchering is done on site, and the bread is made fresh every day. The house-brewed organic beer is a wonderful treat, and the brewery introduces new specials weekly.
Here’s a recommended dish to have with your beer flight: The Cluck Yeah, an especially delicious fried chicken sandwich with buffalo sauce, bleu cheese, and house-made pickles. Be sure to add either the jumbo smoked wings or Maryland fries to your order. Vegan options are also available here.
Rocky River Tap & Grill
With live music on Thursdays, Rocky River Tap & Grill offers a fun, casual environment for everyone. It’s open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, and it even offers brunch on the weekends. Chiefly a farm-to-table experience, its menu features locally farmed, sustainable meals prepared with a large dose of culinary creativity.
Meanwhile, the wine and beer list highlight local Indiana and neighboring Michigan wineries and breweries. Be sure to try the scrumptious duck nachos, featuring duck from Culver’s Farm, black beans, beer cheese, chili sour cream, scallions, BBQ sauce, and house-made tortilla chips. Plenty of vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options are available as well. You’ll love the vegetable hash, veggie Benedict, Impossible burger, and zoodles (zucchini noodles).
Open every day for breakfast and lunch, Uptown Kitchen serves freshly made food using local ingredients. This popular restaurant promises to spoil you with great-tasting sustainable meals.
Don’t miss the breakfast burrito, a jalapeno tortilla filled with chorizo, scrambled eggs, avocado, potatoes, jalapeno, red onion, and melted cheese with house-made salsa roja on the side. Vegetarian options are undoubtedly plentiful here. Be sure to try the Mediterranean frittata, vegetarian croissant, and veggie burger.
Uptown Kitchen also offers gluten-free pizzas, soups, sandwiches, pancakes, and desserts.
Local Foods Bakery
No list of organic-friendly restaurants would be complete without a bakery. Local Foods Bakery only uses non-GMO flours, fair trade chocolates, and local dairy products to bring delectable desserts to the masses.
In the near future, Local Foods will also be offering adult and children’s cooking classes, as well. For a morning boost, pick up a “Morning Glory Muffin” loaded with carrots, apples, raisins, coconut, and sunflower seeds. This popular bakery also offers dairy-free, grain-free, and gluten-free options.
