Soule Cafe

The Pitch

Soulé Nola provides healthy family dining options for individuals with varying food restrictions. Vegans, vegetarians, and meat-eaters are all welcome into their space and provided delicious meals with locally sourced ingredients. Soulé offers a diversity of food types so that plant-based eaters don’t have to give up eating comfort food or aren’t misled about the meals they are eating. Soulé Nola dedicates themselves to making sure that menu items aren’t limiting for those with food restrictions, but rather welcoming.
