Cape Cod Magazine just released it’s “Top People To Watch in 2015” and one of my favorite people has been chosen. His name is Nate Fanara and he is the owner of the Green Lotus Cafe, which is located at 349 Main St in Hyannis.
The Green Lotus is Cape Cod’s first truly vegan/ vegetarian cafe and serves up breakfast and lunch. I’ve tried convincing him to do dinner, but we need small steps here as we want everyone to know about this place.
Nate is an amazing cook. Not only that, but he’s got a fantastic personality and isn’t afraid to take time out to chat while he’s blending up a smoothie, dishing out some soup or whatever else he has going on.
In 2014 he was a speaker at the 2014 Boston Vegetarian Food Festival where he wowed fest goers with his vegan version of New England Clam Chowdah!
Did I mention he’s also a triathlete and has finished an Ironman? That’s pretty bad-ass in my book.
The cafe’s following is getting bigger and bigger, and Nate’s passion for plant based food is becoming more and more well known. You can go in there any day and see all sorts of people still trying it out for the first time, or regulars coming back for their favorite dishes.
I’ve been there numerous times and have had a couple different soups. The 3 Potato Chowder is my favorite soup, hence the reason the pic over there on your right has an empty cup. It was so goooood I couldn’t wait for my camera app to load.
My fave sandwich so far is The Maui which is creamy avocado spread, coconut bacon, pineapple relish, tomatoes, lettuce, sprouts on a house baked 7 grain. I can hands down crush probably 2 or 3 of these sandwiches, but I can refrain… I will just have another one the next day! 😛
Why does it have to be 10pm right now, I’m hungry? See, Nate, this is why you need to be opened late!
Either way, if you are on Cape Cod, planning a trip to Cape Cod or whatever, you need to make a stop in and see Nate and the rest of the Green Lotus crew. I PROMISE you will not be disappointed!
