A vegan café for 9th Street

A vegan café called called V ❤️ U is coming to 428 E. Ninth St.

EVG correspondent Steven ran into its owner, Junie Ishimori, yesterday in front of the space between Avenue A and First Avenue.

Ishimori, who previously co-owned the vegan ice cream shop Stogo on 10th Street for four years, is just starting work on the café, and hopes to open by the end of the summer.

This storefront was previously Mr. Throwback, which moved across the street in December.

Oh! This is great news!

Junie, incidentally, has been doing frozen delights for various cafés, including the V-Spot on St. Mark's.

In my not-so-humble opinion, we can't have too many vegan cafés.
