A diner in the Lehigh Valley area that offers “bright and satisfying food” will close forever in five years – The Morning Call
The kitchen of comfortable plant-based food, which has recently moved from Quakertown to Telford, is closing forever after five years of operation.
Clean Roots Vegan, which offers a “consciously clean food opportunity,” will hold its final business day on Tuesday, May 24, at 114 W. Broad St. in Telford, according to a post on the restaurant’s Facebook page.
The snack bar was established in 2017 at 500 W. Broad St. in Quakertown before moving to a larger room in Telford in November.
“Like many small businesses, we had problems after the pandemic, but with the help and generosity of friends and family we were able to stay open a little longer,” the announcement said. “Unfortunately, we have reached the last chapter. We are very grateful for our extraordinary staff (past and present), incredible suppliers and the relationships we have established with our beloved guests over the past 5 years. ”
The diner, run by three friends – Jan Landis, Christine Moyer and Carol Hernle, has become known for its wide range of fresh and delicious vegan dishes.
Partners where possible use organic and local ingredients as well as organic or reusable products to make the world a better place.
“We value our relationship and always try to create bright and satisfying food for you and your family,” the company said in a statement. “Our food is always fresh, eclectic, creative and cooked with love.”
Highlights on the menu include poppy and cheese dishes, handy bowls such as burritos and Thai noodles with sesame seeds, salads such as Green Satay and Waco Taco, and hand-made dishes such as “chicken” ban mi, seitan cheesecake and Sammy fillet without fish.
There are also “artists” such as french fries, breaded and fried artichokes, and vegan and gluten-free desserts from Vegan Treats in Bethlehem and Sweet Melissa’s LOVE in Pensburg.
“No one could have predicted that the world would be as it is now, but the universe has other plans for us,” Clean Roots said in a statement. “Thank you, thank you, thank you for believing in us, supporting us and becoming our family. We will miss you all very much. “
The ad gathered more than 450 reactions and 130 comments, mostly from Clean Roots customers who complained about the upcoming closure and expressed warm wishes to the owners.
“Nuuuuu!” written by one man. “This is such sad news. Know that your community loves you all and enjoys every meal! You have to make a cookbook with all these amazing dishes! ”
“So sad!” – commented another client. “Thank you for sharing your talents with the community! As a vegan, it’s so hard to find quality food in this area that both me and my non-vegan family will enjoy! Good luck in your next adventure! ”
