Vegan Train Ride Takes Off on Earth Day

All aboard PA's cruelty-free train—serving quinoa salad, chickpea bake, and raw lime cheesecake!

Pennsylvania-based Firefly Café partnered with Boyertown train operator Colebrookdale Railroad to offer an all vegan train excursion. The trip will take passengers from Boyertown to Pottstown and serve gluten-free vegan dishes such as quinoa salad, a roasted chickpea bake with pesto, and raw key lime cheesecake. Colebrookdale Railroad assistant director Doug Horvat first worked with Firefly Café’s co-owner Loriann Wade for an excursion last summer that quickly sold out, indicating the demand for a vegan train trip. The Firefly Café opened last year with a mostly vegan menu and Wade removed all animal products several months ago. In an effort to promote vegan food to the community, Wade plans to open a vegan general store—stocked with plant-based cheeses, other food items, and eco-friendly products—adjacent to the café later this year. The vegan train takes off on April 22, with two more excursions scheduled for this summer and fall.
