The beloved Cottontown-area vegan restaurant Lamb's Bread is now A Peace of Soul Vegan Kitchen.
And the name change comes with a few other changes, too.
"The new name represents my vision and a more modern take on our cuisine," says owner Folami Geter, who bought Lamb's Bread from her father six years ago.
Along with the name change, Geter plans "extensive renovations" beginning Aug. 28, for which the restaurant will close until October. In the meantime, Geter plans to serve out of a new food truck.
Geter says she won't be getting rid of any favorite menu items, but does plan to update and expand the menu.
"We'll be keeping all of our customer favorites and adding more amazing dishes," Geter says. "We're striving to appeal to an even wider audience, so gluten free, soy free, and those looking for more raw options will have selections as well."
The current menu is anchored by addictive mock proteins that change daily, like kung pao chicken or meatballs, plus vegan takes on healthy soul food sides — purple cabbage, collards, vegan mac and cheese, brown rice and more. The cafe also offers sandwiches, drinks and desserts.
The restaurant opened in 2005, and was for many years Columbia's only all-vegan restaurant. It's also a key black-owned business in an area that's seeing rapid changes.
A Peace of Soul is located at 2338 Main St.
Geter promises more announcements to come.
