Nourish is a Plant Based Cafe for Everyone
Did you know there’s a plant based cafe in the heart of downtown Northampton? Not only does Nourish Wellness Cafe offer a plant-based menu; we are also 100% organic, and serious about local sourcing. It’s 2018, and more and more people are turning to a plant-based diet. There are so many reasons, ranging from the health benefits of plants, to serious concerns about the meat and dairy industries. We are proud to be a plant based cafe for all these reasons – and because our vegetarian and vegan menu items couldn’t be more delicious! At Nourish Cafe, everyone can find something to please their palate, while making a choice that supports our local farms and our planet. So whether you follow a plant-based diet or are just hungry for some extra nourishment, visit us at our plant based cafe in Noho.
Why Choose a Plant Based Cafe?
Evidence consistently supports the benefits of a vegetarian diet, including a number of recent international studies. A study from the Netherlands looked at almost 6,000 people and found that those who ate a high ratio of plant-derived protein to animal-derived protein were at lower risk of developing coronary heart disease. A Brazilian study looked at approximately 4,500 people and came to a similar conclusion: those who consumed a diet high in plant protein were 60 percent less likely to develop a buildup of plaque in the arteries of the heart, compared to those who ate diets high in animal protein. And a study of South Asian people in the United States found that vegetarianism was associated with lessened risk for heart disease and diabetes. (Source: Medical News Today)

A Plant Based Cafe for Any Time of Day
We open at 8am Monday-Saturday and 9am Sunday. Rise and shine with one of our hearty breakfast bowls. Choose from seasonal oats, a granola bowl (with coconut milk, almond milk, or Sidehill Farms yogurt), or our specialty blended bowls: Berry Breakfast, Green Goddess, and Acai. For lunch or dinner, our Wellness Bowls are sure to satisfy. Choose brown rice, quinoa or greens topped with sprouts, nuts, house-fermented veggies, avocado, sauce, and more. For a lighter meal or snack, try a creative juice, smoothie, or avo toast. Satisfy your sweet tooth with soft and chewy gluten-free cookies, chia pudding, avocado chocolate mousse, and other sweet treats that vary each day. For a pick-me-up, we’ve got Fair Trade coffee, Dean’s Beans cold brew, and Katalyst Kombucha.
