LOKAL Cafe Plans To Close Its Prince George Street Location

WILLIAMSBURG-LOKAL Café is closing its current location on Prince George Street in downtown Williamsburg.

LOKAL Café Founder and Chef Eric Christenson shared the news on May 27. The establishment’s last day on Prince George Street is Saturday, May 29.

“This past year was a challenging one for everyone, and we found ourselves having to pivot many times to adapt to the ever-changing business environment,” Christenson said in a statement.

Despite the challenges faced by the covid-19 pandemic, Christenson added that his business continues to thrive and he is searching for a larger location for the café. A new location has not yet been disclosed.

“Our business is growing, and our small scratch kitchen can no longer accommodate the demand for healthier, homemade, whole-foods, and plant-based alternatives,” Christenson said. “We are currently in negotiations for a new location with a larger kitchen, to provide better accessibility, and more seating capacity, including outdoors.”

LOKAL Café is a whole food plant-based café that works with local farmers to provide products with the freshest ingredients. Its menu includes sandwiches, salads, soups, smoothies, and desserts, including frozen yogurt.

Bread may continue to be pre-ordered online. Christensen added that beginning in June LOKAL  Café will offer more options including a new Roman-style pizza.
