Akron’s #1 Vegan & Allergy-Friendly Restaurant

We Are Temporarily Closed

Changes are underway!

After much consideration, we have decided the original Ms. Julie’s Kitchen location will be remaining closed. The good news is that MJK products will still be available for purchase!

While we are sad to make this decision about the restaurant location, we look forward to continuing to serve you in a new way. We have been exploring new opportunities to serve 100% vegan and plant-based recipes to an evolving market that values fresh and healthy meals combined with convenience and delivery options. In the coming weeks, we will be announcing a new model for MJK original recipes, along with some fresh new menu options.

Thank you for your patience during this process. The best way to stay informed on these changes is to sign up below with your email. We’ll deliver fresh updates directly to your inbox.

Rave Reviews

The homemade hemp burger on a homemade bun was perfection!

Mac & Cheese and fresh cut fries were the perfect sides. Chocolatey Brownies were moist and rich. The donuts were good, too—and cake-like and dense. So appreciate an all-vegan menu! Yum. Lots of choices, many to take away. The screened front door is a nice touch. Friendly staff!

GUYS… I found a real gem!! Ms Julie’s Kitchen was the absolute best.

I fell in love when I walked in and saw the play area for toddlers. Then I walked to the menu and saw that not only was the entire menu vegan, but they offered oil-free options !!! Such tasty food and great service. We can’t wait to visit again.

They have an excellent selection of Celiac -friendly, gluten-free dishes, including delicious donuts!

It was a relief to order from their menu and to not worry about cross-contamination. The majority of the menu, is in fact, gluten-free, and it’s all vegan. The staff was excellent. I loved the lemon-cucumber water and the toys for the kids. Thank you!!!

Worth a visit for any omnivore!

While yes, everything is vegan (and it’s so wonderful to have such a reliable, committed vegan option) this business offers sweet treats and breakfasts that any carnivore would love. High props for a blueberry doughnut filled with blueberry! Like a pie meets a doughnut. Delivery available through most 3rd party apps making it easy to get their amazing foods. Keep up the great work!
