What Do You Stand For?
The Stand Vegan Cafe, located in the Sportsplex in Fairfield, CT, offers sandwiches, soups, baked goods, beverages and more, just like you would find at any other cafe. But there is a clear difference at The Stand. All of the food is vegan!
According to Chef Jenna, coming up with a cafe menu that would appeal to vegans and non-vegans alike was not a challenge. “Fresh ingredients and good technique make good food,” she explains. Jenna believes that if you have these two main ingredients, it doesn’t matter if you are using animal products or plant-based products. In the end, its simply delicious.
From mac and cheese, to avocado toasts, cauliflower saffron soup, smoothies and fresh juices and a delectable assortment of baked goods, Jenna says her cafe offers a gentle invitation for those who are already vegan to feel comfortable, safe and excited and those who are not to come and give it a try with a lot of enthusiasm. One sip of the Indulgent smoothie and you’ll be hooked!
It’s not just about the food though, its about your health, the health of our planet and the well-being of animals. Chef Jenna believes that we are all a work in progress and try hard to be the best versions of ourselves. Her goal at The Stand is to make this easier for you. Jenna explained that, “not just plant foods but the absence of animal foods is required for saving the planet and better for our bodies and souls and, goes without saying, better for the animals..”
With Chef Jenna in the kitchen you are on the right path to achieving better health, helping the planet and caring for all living beings.
Whether its your first time trying a plant-based restaurant or you’ve been vegan for years, Jenna recommends trying the cauliflower-based Mac and Cheese. After all, Mac and cheese is everyones favorite comfort food. She also recommends pushing your boundaries of vegan protein by trying the Seitan Bagel Sandwich. Its exactly what you did not know you needed.
(P.S. Don’t forget to grab an almond butter ball to go!)
