Vegan gluten-free coffee shop

Big news to coffee lovers with dietary restrictions!

Propaganda Coffee, a new café that will serve up exclusively vegan and gluten-free food, opened in Lakewood on July 22.

Sporting the tagline “coffee without villainy,” Propaganda’s name was inspired by owner Max Parker’s love of propaganda posters and coffee’s revolutionary history.

Propaganda is unique in Lakewood’s coffee scene because of its exclusively vegan and gluten-free offerings. There’s a modest bakery menu alongside a rapidly-expanding roster of meals, from the sprouted tropical overnight oats to the biscuit sandwich featuring Beyond sausage and Just Egg to the potato latkes served with a plant-based sour cream. New on the menu is a zucchini lasagna with house-made ricotta.

Unique offerings also round out the drink menu, including the eye-catching Bird Town, or a double espresso over ice with lemon juice and maple syrup, and the McKinley Place, a double espresso over ice with milk and coconut water.

In early August, they announced their 6-week fundraiser series, entitled Brunch Without Villainy, in which they partner with and donate to a different NGO weekly. Watch their Instagram for upcoming events.

Find it at 17806 Detroit Avenue, Lakewood, OH 44107.
