After months of consideration, we have decided to close the cafe July 3rd. The two of us have ambitions and goals that are going to be taking us out of Iowa this fall.

Our mission from the beginning was to be able to provide quality vegan food as well as a clearinghouse for ideas and events that push back against the tendencies of our culture rooted in patriarchy, ecocide, white supremacy, homophobia and exploitation. When we first opened we weren’t sure how people would receive some of the ideas that were presented in the space. Being an all-vegan café in the heart of Iowa already seemed to have its risks. But we were pleasantly surprised to be greeted by some of the most caring, wonderful people. It has been a pleasure serving this community and we want to thank everyone who made it possible for us to not only succeed, but thrive.

We are not out of the food game by a long shot, but we’re taking a detour. Please come visit us before we close, and contact us if you have any questions!  You can also contact us to subscribe to our mailing list to receive updates once we begin new endeavors related to vegan cooking and animal activism!
