A trip to 'Soul Good Vegan Cafe', reviewing our first Black-Owned Restaurant. Officially Vegans now?

After a great Saturday morning 3-mile trail with friends, we decided to visit a Black-Owned restaurant to fulfill our hunger. So the question after choosing a Black-Owned vegan restaurant for the day...Did attending Soul Good Vegan Cafe change our lives? We've been anticipating attending this restaurant located in Durham, NC from its catchy name, and as a Black-owned "soul food" restaurant, introducing only vegan selections, makes it even more of a curiosity to just try.

Walking inside of Soul Good you already feel a sense of comfort. The friendly staff made our experience a welcoming one as we looked around to view the other items inside the establishment. There were Black-Owned products for sell such as hand-made face masks, deodorant, Black soap, and even incense. (Side note) I love incense by the way, especially when someone Black makes them, it just has this distinct aroma like you know someone Black created it. Nonetheless, we were happy to see that the restaurant gives customers a chance to shop Black-Owned products while ordering food.

Our vegan food selections were:

1. The B's Wrap Black bean wrap w/ vegan Mac & Cheese

2. Soulful Beyond Burger w/ vegan Mac & Cheese

3. Pulled Jack BBQ w/ Plantains, Chickpea Cornbread, Mac & Cheese, Rice

4. Soulful Beyond Burger w/ Collard Greens
