Wildflower Vegan Café
501 North High Street
Open: Lunch and early dinner, daily
Price: $ BYO
Style: Vegan food prepared behind a deli counter to take out or eat at one of the 12 seats at small, round tables.
The Scoop: In 2011, vegan evangelist Eric Nyman bought a food truck, named it Wildflower Earthly Vegan Fare, and operated it around Cherry Hill. A year later, he sold the truck and opened the café in the Glasstown Arts District of downtown Millville.
The Menu: Everything is made from scratch with local, seasonal ingredients. The menu changes often. A recent dinner special was coconut-curried vegetables with coconut rice (pictured). Nyman makes vegan sushi, such as sweet potato or apple-cucumber. On some Mondays he offers what he puckishly calls Taco Tuesday, a trio of tacos made with soy protein as a stand-in for ground beef, with soy sour cream and fresh pico de gallo. Gluten-free entrées and pastries are plentiful. Fruit smoothies, at $6.75 for 16 ounces, are organic, unless made with almond milk.
Heads Up: On weekend evenings, Nyman sometimes brings in a musician to entertain. In nice weather, customers can eat at tables in the courtyard.Click here to leave a comment
