Haha the Cafe Gratitude founders eat tons of meat now and vegans are PISSED

Also haha, love this old photo.

The Guardian reports:

The California-based husband and wife founders of celebrity-endorsed vegan restaurant group Cafe Gratitude say they have received death threats after it was revealed last week that they are raising, slaughtering and eating animals on their farm north of San Francisco.

Matthew and Terces Engelhart, both in their sixties, who opened the first Cafe Gratitude in 2004 and whose celebrity followers have included Gwyneth Paltrow, Beyoncé and Sacha Baron Cohen, countered the firestorm of criticism with a defense of the “regenerative agriculture” methods they now use on their Be Love Farm in Vacaville, calling it a personal choice made in the privacy of their home.

Read on for lots more on the firestorm of criticism.

(Also, I noticed the grilled cheese place that took over the old Cafe Gratitude space in the Mission has closed up shop. I wonder what’s gonna happen there.)

    Ha! A juice bar just opened next to the bakery where I work; I have to keep repressing the impulse to go over and ask them for meat juice.
