What is it? A sustainability-focused all-day café in SoHo.

Why’s it unmissable? The menu is vegetable-centric, and a proportion of every purchase will go to The Door, a local non-profit funding hospitality job training for youth in the community – and they’re hiring their team from the program as well.
