Still Open For Business!

Still Open For Business!

There was a rumor we were closing down.  My older daughter and son held a mamouth 40% off sale last week in September, and apparently that got the rumor started.

Nothing could be further from the truth!  Come in and support Alachua's only vegetarian/vegan health food shop/cafe!

We received certification to open our vegetarian cafe on the 22nd of June.  Since then we have been going and growing!

The outdoor Garden Patio is open (when it stops raining) and we also have plenty of seating indoors and outside under the awning in front.

Some of our menu items are:  salads, sandwiches, snacks, lasagna, eggplant parmigiana, pizza, samosas, entrees, plus pastries, such as cakes, muffins and cupcakes.

We are in the process of putting in a new veggie deli in the old fridge room in the back.  We are applying for the permits right now, and acquiring the equipment we will need.  We're going to start with a few basic items like sandwiches, wraps, cupcakes, pastry, veggie burgers, smoothies.  It might take us several months to bring it all together.  It's a CAFE, not a restaurant.  We will have seating on the patio in the back, and a few more tables in the shop.


The founder of Veggie Dog died in a climbing accident in Washington State last year, so the company went into hibernation.  They are now shipping Veggie Dog again and we're waiting for ours to arrive.  Woof!  Woof! to all our canine friends.


The new shop manager is Yasmin Mohini   She likes to be called Moh, and is a 2014 graduate of Mt Holyoke College in Massachusetts.  Founder Jala is semi-retired, but occasionally works a short shift.

We Are Not a Cafe

Because the words "Whole Foods" appear in our title, people who view up on a handheld device often wonder if we are part of the giant Whole Foods chain.  For better or worse, we are a small family-owned, community centered shop on Main Street in Alachua.  We presently have lots and lots of natural and organic food and drinks; all are vegetarian and vegan.  We also are a cafe.  We have several tables inside and out if you wish to linger and snack, which we welcome.
