Oh No, South Wedge!

Have you heard the sad news? As of just last week, 2 of Rochester’s most unique vegan offerings are no longer available.  

It seems like yesterday that Nathaniel Square Corner Store began their amazing Vegan Wednesdays. For just a few hours, 1 night a week, we could go get deliciously greasy sandwiches, stuffed with awesomeness, like Buffalo Seitan, the Reuben, Philly Cheesesteak and Tofu Po’ Boy with a side of fries or vegan mac salad. It was like a dream, and I’m not sure it wasn’t a dream, considering how fleeting it was. Nathaniels has now closed their kitchen. 😦 All that remains is a corner store specializing in craft beer. *wipes tear* 

Just as upsetting is the closing of Eco Bella, Rochester’s ONLY vegan bakery. This one really caught me off guard. Not only was this the only place to find vegan baked goods, but they also catered to the gluten-free community. They had moved to a bigger location, and always seem to be doing pretty good business. They even baked our wedding cake for us, just 3 weeks ago.

100% Cruelty-Free

I don’t know what happened, but it sucks. What is happening in the South Wedge? What is happening to our vegan-friendly establishments?

Come on Rochester Vegans! Get out there and support our community!
