Soul Food vegan cafe heads to Mount Rainier

A vegan soul food bakery and restaurant is moving to the former Bird Kitchen and Cocktails location in Mount Rainier.

After a successful launch at the Tastemakers food hall in Brookland, Dodah’s Kitchen Cafe will move to 3801 34th St. on the roundabout in the middle of town.

The cafe offers menu items like vegan macaroni and cheese made from soy milk and nutritional yeast, lasagna and meatless meatloaf and desserts like vegan cheesecake made from organic tofu and various cookies and cakes.

You can already buy Dodah’s desserts on the street at the Glut Co-operative Grocery Store and at Mom’s and Yes! Organic market.

The cafe was created by area residents Janice Cheaver, Edwin Lottie, and Gary Feld, with recipes based on Cheaver’s education in Florida and his faith as an African Hebrew Israelite, a vegan religious sect, which encourages raw and sugar-free foods and discourages alcohol. and caffeine consumption.

Dodah’s – named after Cheaver, who is aunt in Hebrew – won’t be the only vegan soul food restaurant in Mount Rainier, either. Sweet and Natural is just up the street.
