Foodie Fix – The Echo News

Rabbit Food Cafe is a recent and desperately needed addition to Gas City. 

Located in downtown Gas City, the restaurant sits right next to Taylor students’ favorite Sophie’s Ice Cream shop. The cafe is spacious and decorated flamboyantly with murals on the walls. It shares a space with a cycle studio, making it the one-stop-shop for all things healthy living. 

Rabbit Food Cafe prides itself on serving whole foods that are vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, SOS-free, keto-friendly and inclusive of a variety of diets. They offer a multitude of vegan meals, grab & go snacks, smoothies, fresh juices and shakes. Their food is freshly prepared, and the menu varies from week to week. Check out their page on Facebook at @rabbitfoodies to see what they are offering every week.

The food is not only a healthy alternative to fast food, but it is affordable for college students. The grab & go options, which include veggies and hummus, fruit with dessert hummus, parfaits, salads and soups are priced at just $5. The lunch specials include permanent menu features such as grilled cheese and tomato soup, tacos, taco salad, cauliflower wings and alternating weekly specials. These specials are priced at a mere $7. Fresh juices, shakes and smoothies ring up to $5 each. 

Pro tip: The fresh juices are truly the best way to brighten a rainy March day. They are colorful and taste like sunshine in a cup.
