Cafe Ollie – Something for Everyone!

Cafe Ollie – Something for Everyone!

I read about Cafe Ollie over on  It sounded like a nice place, but I sort of forgot about it.  Then I saw that our Dark Horse Brewing friend, Joanna Hollyday, had liked their Facebook page which got me over to check out the page.  This is when I saw they were big supporters of Michigan beer (yes!) and had lots of vegan options on their menu (YES!).  Our first visit was actually on Mother’s day with Brenda’s boys for brunch, which was great.  We decided we needed to come back for dinner and a beverage, so we may our way over there a couple weeks ago after work.

Cafe Ollie is located in beautiful (and historic!) Depot Town in Ypsilanti, Michigan.

When you walk in to Cafe Ollie,  you feel like you went back in time.  Its like a cool record store (remember School Kids??) and a funky coffee house.

And something I’ve never seen before…BEER SHAKES!  I’d almost go back to some dairy to try one of those 🙂

We started out dinner with a Crooked Tree and a nice Sauvignon Blanc.

I opted for the Buffalo 66.  A tofu wrap with a tangy ranch buffalo sauce.  Yep, not a vegan sandwich 🙂

Brenda went with the Dimitri.  A grilled vegan cheese, avocado, and tomato sandwich on ciabatta with a side of asian slaw (totally vegan approved 🙂
