About Us

Imagine Vegan Cafe is a family owned and operated vegan cafe specializing in real food for real people!

The vision of our cafe is all about compassionate eating. It is a place to
come and enjoy a meal, a snack, or just a dessert without causing
harm to any of our animal or human friends. We opened this restaurant with the
intent to have a place where you never have to worry what is in your food,
to offer vegan style foods that are unavailable anywhere else, and most
of all offer a place where you never feel like a weirdo for ordering food
without animal products.

Being good to our environment is also very important to us. We believe
strongly in Reduce, Re-use and Recycle. It is the primary reason our dishes
don’t match, we recycle and use compost bins, and we offer biodegradable
containers for togo items. We feel doing our best to leave a beautiful earth
for our children, grand-children, and anyone thereafter is the least we can do.

Other very important reasons for creating this restaurant are to not only
give families an affordable place to bring their little ones, but a place
where children can act like children. We offer a full kids menu, have
coloring books and crayons available for use while you dine and a kids area they
can play in while you eat.

Please try to understand that we are a family owned and operated community.  We are not a cookie cut, corporate business.  In fact, we are the antithesis of this model.  Thus, your experience may vary from visit to visit.  Sometimes you may not have to wait long for a table or food.  Sometimes it may take an hour.  Sometimes there may be children running around your table, singing very loudly.  Sometimes you will have a very quiet, candlelight experience.  So please leave your expectations at the door.

Don’t ever hesitate to ask for anything, we hope we
can make your visit as comfortable as possible.

    I am so excited. I looked over the menu and nearly had a conniption fit over the banana split (and all the things I didn’t know had a vegan counterpart). I hope you open soon. :o)

    I am so excited to learn about your restaurant! Hubby and I aren’t strict vegan, but even being ovo-lacto vegetarian can be difficult in Memphis. We will definitely be visiting soon with our four kids. :)
