Here's more from the San Francisco-based, health-focused cafe's website:
With an expanded menu, Beloved NYC will be baking fresh organic 100% sourdough bread, made with a 150-year-old San Franciscan and German culture. We will be offering a full espresso bar, an expanded brunch menu, and our most delicious new offering—warm melt-in-your-mouth orgasmic sourdough donuts.You can still expect to find our signature plant-based recipes, fresh juices, and superfood smoothies.Beloved NYC will host musicians, dances, tea ceremonies, and other events that will bring the community together. If you are a musician or have an offering that's aligned with our mission, please reach out! We love to collaborate.
You can find a menu here. For starters, the hours are 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. They will expand serving times in the weeks ahead.
The original Beloved Cafe opened in San Francisco's Mission District in 2017.
Via email, a rep for owners Amy Vito and her husband, Kambiz Fahim, told us why they decided to expand to this neighborhood:
"Ever since opening Beloved Cafe in San Francisco, we had so many requests from New Yorkers to open a cafe here. That planted the seed. Over the years we visited New York as often as possible and we fell in love with the vibrancy and community. The thought of living in New York and opening a restaurant here excited us and we decided to follow that excitement. We feel at home in the Lower East Side, the neighborhood, the vibrancy, the art, and the diversity all really speaks to us and we want to be a part of it."
