sorry to see you go

Remaining in business for 8 years is an enviable accomplishment among veg eateries known for a high rate of attrition. Congratulations to NOJ for its 8 years! Yet, during these past 8 years, this café’s poor skills of communication have proven frustrating. This culminated with its announcement on a January 18 Facebook post that it was closing down “at the end of March 2023.” What does that mean? March 22, March 30, or March 31?

I am writing this on March 31. That announcement was never pinned to the top of its FB page, so was soon buried by a few other posts. Nor was its imminent closure ever announced on its website. (Too late for that, because since March 29 or before, the website has been down. “There has been a critical error on this website.”) Its final FB posting was of some desserts on March 22. Appended to that post, two faithful customers asked if the café is still open, yet as of March 31 both queries have gone unanswered. A third customer wrote that she tried phoning, but no answer on the phone either. I emailed them on March 29 querying the same, but as of today, March 31, I received no response. No surprise. Just now, just past 9am, I phoned, but my call was answered only by an ambiguous recording. No surprise there either.

As its closing time was 4pm, I made past efforts to be there by 3pm, sometimes only to find the door locked with no signage explaining why. Since early 2022, I stopped making any extra effort to arrive there by 3pm, consequently patronizing it less and less. No doubt, other needlessly inconvenienced customers stopped making the effort to patronize the café altogether. Hence its inevitable demise. I am sorry to see NOJ close down, especially as it goes out “not with a bang but a whimper.”

Good quality

Even if the menu is a little small, everything here is excellent quality and delish. Bummer not everything is vegan, but at least vegan options are clear.

Pros: Excellent quality vegan food, Nice little oasis , Vegetarian establishment

Phenomenal vegan food

I have not eaten in the location, but I have purchased their food sold in the nearby natural foods co-op. Their food is fantastic. It is clean, homemade, delicious, everything good that I can possibly think of to say about it. When I go to the co-op, I’m always interested to see what dishes they have available in the to go case. I am to make it into the Actual restaurant as soon as possible being that the advertised sandwiches look phenomenal.

Pros: Clean, Fresh, Wholesome

World class vegan in small Willimantic!!

We eat here once or twice per week. Their vegan specials are always amazing. Our favorites are the loaded potatoes and the black bean burgers.
From their regular menu the best vegan options are the Buddha says relax salad and the All Hail Caesar salad as well as the local Banh Minh.

Everything is Amazing!

All meals are vegetarian and many are or can easily be made vegan. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly! Most menu items are less than ten dollars. Everything is fresh and made quickly. NOJ is one of my favorite places to eat!

Pros: Tons of vegan options Cute and cozy dining space
