John Salley’s New Vegan Restaurant Opens This Friday in San Bernardino
NBA veteran, TV show host, and vegan chef John Salley is opening an all-vegan cafe in San Bernardino this Friday! Whether you need a cup of joe on-the-go or you’re looking to stay and chill for a bit, Cafe Organix is the perfect spot for you!
When we asked Salley why he decided to open Cafe Organix, he shared that he and his partners “wanted to be a part of the growth of veganism in San Bernardino, putting an end to food deserts in Black and Brown communities.” With Cafe Organix, Salley and his team hope to offer a welcoming environment for everyone in the community––vegan and non-vegan.
Their products are primarily made in-house with organic ingredients. “Expect a well-seasoned and tasty vegan cuisine. We will play with the menu to figure out the favorites and the foods we are good at making,” shared Salley.
Aside from offering drinks and eats, Cafe Organix will also stock frozen packaged goods, tea blends, candles, and other products! There is an art gallery inside the cafe that will feature a new local artist each month, and they also plan to host regular events for the community.
Cafe Organix is set to open this Friday, June 26th at 420 East Hospitality Lane, Suite A-10 in San Bernardino, CA. The ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at 11:30am and Kayla Collins will be DJing from 6:30-8:30pm. Masks are required.
