Book Lover’s Café, a bookstore and vegetarian restaurant in Gainesville, FL, converted to an all-vegan menu earlier this month. Vegan Co-owners Jason Gottfried and Carlo Besozzi say the reason behind the switch is to fill a growing need for an entirely vegan restaurant in the Gainesville community. Book Lover’s Café serves a variety of internationally inspired dishes, such as African lentils, Thai peanut noodles, and Inca quinoa with veggies. “One of our main goals is to become more community-oriented,” Gottfried says in The Independent Florida Alligator. “I hope that the vegan community will enjoy and support us and help us transform this place into something fantastic.”
