Little Lad’s Cafe Now Open on Delancey

Posted on: October 7th, 2011 at 6:28 am by

Neighborhood vegans, the wait is over.  Almost two months after news broke that Little Lad’s Cafe was opening inside the ground level of Templo Adventista del Septimo on Delancey, we can now report that it’s all systems go.

Interior renovations here at 41 Delancey have been ongoing since mid-August.  What was a church reception room is now converted into a cafeteria.  A new dais of sorts was constructed in the middle of the floor, and numerous tables are scattered about.  It’s very roomy.  And welcoming.

As previously reported, the venture will maintain a symbiotic relationship with the church. Under the progressive mission of “Solving America’s health problems one customer at a time,” the ultimate goal is to help the community by offering healthy foods at bottom-dollar price points (e.g. $5 lunch buffet).

Before relocating to the Lower East Side, Little Lad’s was headquartered at 120 Broadway for more than five years.
