A new vegan, raw, organic café and juice bar, called The Raw Café, is set to open in Detroit at the end of August. Founder LaKeta McCauley; who is also a certified raw chef, author, and certified nutrionist, among other things; first started a gourmet raw food meal delivery service in 2007 out of a desire to bring the message of food healing to other people. As a breast cancer survivor, McCauley believes that eating raw, organic, and vegan food goes a long way toward optimum health. The restaurant, she says, will have an eclectic feel and feature savory meals as well as treats such as waffle cones and ice cream. McCauley has also written a book on raw healing, titled Taking Every “Bite” Seriously.
