The Vegan Rueben from Whole World (photo by Eriyah Flynn)
Not to be confused with Whole Foods (although, ironically they were both established in 1978 and have similar philosophies in serving whole food meals) Whole World is Columbus’ oldest completely (lacto-ovo) vegetarian restaurant, and they are very, vegan friendly. If you are a fan of Reuben sandwiches, Whole World has a delicious vegan Reuben. Their scrumptious menu is made from the freshest ingredients and includes; made-from-scratch soups and breads, daily specials, salads, specialty sandwiches, pizza (with either regular or soy based cheese) and an awesome (affordable) array of baked goodies. Almost every menu item can be made vegan, and they even offer whole wheat crust for the pizza if you so desire. They are located in Clintonville and open for lunch (11am) and dinner (8pm during the week and 9pm on Sat) every day except Mondays and offer a hearty brunch on Sundays from 10am to 2pm. It is a wonderfully whole world of delectable satisfaction as a vegan to find vegan pancakes and vegan French toast with a tall glass of orange juice available here on Sundays. Whole World is located at 3269 N High St, Columbus, OH 43202. Eriyah’s Favorites: The Rueben and peanut butter and chocolate bar.
