New Vegan Restaurant Opening in Richmond!

NuVegan Cafe is an all vegan, cafeteria-style restaurant serving comfort soul food. The franchise will be opening its third location right here in Richmond at 417 W. Grace St.

NuVegan Cafe is reaching out to the local vegan community in hopes of creating a strong presence here in the Richmond area. The cafe will be open daily for lunch and dinner as well as brunch on Sundays. Additionally, they will provide a juice bar, desserts, and even delivery!

They are leaning towards a big grand opening at the end of May and believe everyone should know about this great addition to the Richmond area and our vegan community.
