New Vegan Jackfruit-based Cafe Opens in Los Angeles


The new vegan Jackfruit Cafe is of the latter elk; they’ve wholeheartedly embraced the humble jackfruit into their core mission, and have built an entire café menu around the meat-like fruit.

“We just wanted to create a healthy eatery in the hood, with some good tasting whole foods,” the café wrote on its Facebook. “We love cooking our cuisine with Jackfruit and are able to mimic a lot of your favorite non-vegan dishes.”

For those interested, you can follow along with the Jackfruit Café at their blog, or visit them at 2959 Crenshaw Blvd in Los Angeles, California.
