The fast-casual boom continues with the arrival of Pachamama, which is scheduled to open this June on Adams Avenue near the intersection of the Normal Heights and Kensington neighborhoods; the 2,058-square-foot eatery with patio replaces Cafe Cabaret. Its owners have roots in South America and named the restaurant for an Andean goddess also referred to as Mother Earth; the buildout is focused on renewable materials, including up-cycled elements from the previous tenant.
Its quick-service menu promises to be completely organic and mostly vegan; a few non-vegan dishes feature grassfed beef and sustainably-caught tuna. The all-day eatery’s breakfast offerings include arepas, South American griddle cakes made with organic corn, while the lunch and dinner menu features empanadas, salads, sandwiches, as well as tacos, bowls, and burritos that can be filled with smoky mashed potatoes and vegetables or grilled salmon and quinoa. Beer, wine, and kombucha will also be served.
