Lulu’s Local Eatery isn’t just known for serving salads. The eatery, which features vegan spins of buffalo bites, burgers and wraps is worth a look even for the hardcore meat eater. 

Inside the eatery, the walls are plastered with local artists work and a community board that showcases local events. The eatery, while small, has tables that are placed to make room for those wanting to dine in or outside on their patio. 

Upstairs, the eatery houses an all-day ping pong bar that features a selection of craft brews and cocktails that are served from 5 p.m. to 12 a.m. Monday through Saturday.

For those wanting to try the food, the menu features favorites such as buffalo cauliflower bites paired with vegan dipping sauces, a vegan-inspired Buddha bowl, and breakfast options such as biscuits and gravy. 

Additional breakfast items include tofu breakfast burritos, tossed fruit salad and variety of fruit smoothie options. There are also alcoholic options such as the signature beermosa, a combination of beer and mimosa.
