New Vegan Restaurant Cafe 1610 to Open in Dayton
Vegan restaurant Cafe 1610 is slated to open in Dayton, Ohio on Labor Day weekend. The area’s first all-vegan spot offering breakfast and brunch only, the business will be open Wednesday through Friday 8am-2pm and Saturday and Sunday 10am-4pm, with a special guest-chef dinner service on Sunday evenings from 5-9pm. All menu items will be available for takeout or delivery only.
You’ll find menu items such as Cactus Tofu Scramble with Roasted Potatoes, a Grits Bowl (including BBQ soy curls, carrot bacon, and braised greens), and Biónico (a fruit salad topped with crema, granola, coconut, and walnuts).
While the plant-based dishes look amazing and should draw vegans from around the area, the founders’ primary intent is to market to omnivores, showing just how beautiful and delicious plant-based cuisine can be. The three vegan founders—Xtine Brean (of the vegan food truck, Om Nom Mobile Cafe), Molly Blackshear, and Cathy Mong—intend to bust the stereotype that cooking with plants is flat and boring.
Cafe 1610 is located at 521 Wayne Ave, Dayton, OH 45410 in the Districts Provisions building and opens Saturday, September 5 at 10am. Follow them on Instagram at @Cafe1610.dayton for the latest updates.
