Eating Vegan in Nyack, NY: Art Cafe

On our way down from our annual visit to the Catskill Animal Sanctuary for the big Shindig party celebrating compassionate living, we stopped at this cute little cafe in Nyack called Art Cafe. I googled “vegan eating” as we were driving and this place came up. I checked the menu and the reason why we stopped there was because many of the dishes were list as vegan. The actual word “vegan” was printed on the menu and this makes me happy when eating out. To me that means the restaurant thought about it, understands it, and I can be free and happy while eating there!

Art Cafe has a cool organic coffee shop vibe.


My husband ordered this St. Peter’s organic ale. Love the bottle!


We started with hummus. Very traditional Israeli style with lots of za’atar and super thick pita bread.

I got the Kahlo Bowl which was like a salad of chickpeas, cucumbers, red onion, and fresh herbs with sweet tahini dressing over rice and my husband got the Specialty Bowl with organic tofu slices and a flavorful pistachio and almond mix served over hot basmati rice made with israeli spices.
