A new vegan restaurant named Alchemy Arts Cafe open last Friday at 430 Chapala St. It is part of a new wellness spa named the Alchemy Arts Center. The cafe serves juices and “holistic cuisine” which includes primarily raw items made with local seasonal produce. I am told the menu items are mostly lactose & gluton-free and are “nutritious, designed to support vital energy and balance to the whole body.” Alchemy Arts Cafe is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner from 7am-9pm and is closed on Tuesdays. For more information call 899-8811 or visit alchemyartscenter.com.
