Healthful food can be delicious and nutritious, too.
That’s the philosophy of vegan chef Mat Bardroff and his sister, Jenna, who’ve opened Vegan Cafe Jax in St. Nicholas.
The cafe is a collaboration between the brother and sister and a Jacksonville family practice physician Rene Pulido, who is an advocate of natural plant-based medicine, according to the restaurant’s website.
Describing it as “a tasteful eatery,” the Bardroffs hosted a soft opening of the cafe Monday. The restaurant’s grand opening is Tuesday.
