The Sugar Plum Vegan Cafe will open early in February, 2010 at 2315 K St. The address had been the former location of the True Love Coffeehouse. Totally vegan food–no honey, milk,eggs, or other animal products will be served. What will be served includes vegan potato pancakes, lasagna, curry dishes, and other "home-style comfort foods."
The vegan theme here is "world fusion." Also planned for the cafe are entertainment such as live music in the dining area. But upstairs, there’s going to be a small retail department with clothing sales. Everything in the store will be vegan-made.
It’s delicious. The business is being started by Melissa Wilhelm with her husband Khy’em Amri. The couple have been operating a wholesale baking business for the past two years, delivering vegan foods to Whole Foods, Java City, and numerous other food businesses.
