Little Buddha pops up with vegan fare on 1st Street



Little Buddha, a vegan food business with outposts in Scarsdale and Mt. Cisco, has opened a pop-up cafe at 45 E. First St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue.

Through October, you can find menu items such as açaí bowls, smoothies, burgers and veggie bowls here.

The space had been the coffee bar Cocoa Grinder for a few months. The business never took off, in part because their opening coincided with the (now concluded) months-long water-main work on the block... not to mention the ongoing condoplex construction on the corner of Second Avenue blocked off half of the street for a few years.

If I never see the word "bowl" again when reading about a restaurant's food offerings, it'll be too damn soon.

Amen!

Oh, I just read it as "bowel" and everything settles out nicely.

This reminds me of that old classic TV show, Açaí Bowling For Dollars.

@Gojira I know you pride yourself on being the only octogenarian in our death camp of an assisted living home who stills has teeth, but not all of us are so lucky! Since choking on my final tooth at the bicentennial party you threw for me, I now drink all of my meals from bowls. And sometimes a glass when I'm fancy for company.
