Akron’s New Vegan Café

All-vegan café Ms. Julie’s Kitchen opens in Akron, Ohio, serving cruelty-free cuisine of every stripe.

Earlier this spring, vegan eatery Ms. Julie's Kitchen celebrated its grand opening in Akron, Ohio. Owner and vegan cookbook author Julie Costell serves up breakfast, lunch, and dinner Monday through Friday, and offers lunch and dinner on Saturday afternoons. The casual café offers take-out and delivery, and its menu ranges from spelt flour waffles to hearty sandwiches. Costell was inspired to open the eatery after experiencing tremendous health benefits after transitioning to a raw, vegan diet. The business got its start selling waffles and baked treats at local farmers' markets, but demand soon required Costell to open a retail space for customers to chow down on her healthy, delicious dishes.
