Johnny Mangos has lots of options, but the Ohio City location always smells like grilling meat

A veggie-friendly and fun establishment: Wilbert's

I thought i'd post a little review here on a great place here in downtown Cleveland to enjoy delicious vegetarian options, not to mention friendly service and great live entertainment.  That place is Wilbert's at East 9th and Huron, in the Caxton Building.  I've had the pleasure of lunching and supping there several times and haven't had a dish there yet that has disappointed me.  Some of my favorites include what just might be the best veggie burger in town: giant, tasty and great texture (be sure to request a sampler of their signature sauces : chipotle mayo, lime cilantro, and cucumber.  The veggie burrito's are delish as well : baked perfectly, with a delicious homemade salsa and side of sour cream.  If you order the nacho's don't expect an appetizer: we're talking about a HUGE platter of nacho's : my companion and I could barely consume half - and that was our only meal!  the salads are also yummy, as is the garden veggie wrap (just $5).  Don't forget the spicy bean soup - offered most days, it is a delight all its own.

The aforementioned dishes are all priced very reasonably (5-7 dollars).  For a little more you can order a great couscous topped with vegetables.

The live entertainment is frequent and varied- my last visit, on at Thursday evening, featured the lovely Jocelyn Schofield - this talented singer/songwriter could be likened to Tori Amos and Fiona Apple combined.

On one wall of the restaurant are feat. The set of signed photographs make for an interesting visit.  Drinks are reasonably priced as well.

I've been impressed with every visit to this fun venue with great veggie fare.  It remains one of the best kept secrets downtown.  Visit and Enjoy!
