Wheeler Del Torro, owner of the 30-seat Wheeler’s Cafe and Ice Cream Bar in Boston, will serve up another sweet treat for the veg community starting December 15. The vegan entrepreneur plans on expanding his ice-cream shop into a full-service café complete with vegan sandwiches, salads, soups, baked goods, and teas. Ironically, the Travel Channel’s meat-loving foodie and host Anthony Bourdain inspired Wheeler’s recent endeavor. “[The expansion] was sort of my giving [Bourdain] and other people who have that perception [that vegan food sucks] the finger,” Wheeler told the Boston Herald. “We’re not sitting around eating dirt and twigs.” Save us a seat, Wheeler.
