World Peace Cafe, located on Hammond Drive just off Roswell Road, closed this past Sunday, August 25th. The restaurant had been open six years and apparently did not close for lack of business, and even hints both a cookbook and "intown" location coming soon.
World Peace Cafe was operated by volunteers and owned by the Kadampa Meditation Center Georgia. The restaurant's profits supported "meditation classes and special events designed to help others find peace of mind."
The restaurant will reopen September 7th as the Loving Hut. Loving Hut is an international healthy restaurant, similar to World Peace Cafe, with an existing location in Norcross and one "temporarily closed" in Kennesaw. Loving Hut reportedly has over 200 locations across the globe, and claims to be the largest "international chain of vegan restaurants."
Loving Hut's branding message invites patrons to "Be Vegan, Make Peace!"
