Meat Free Zone
Woodstock Animal Rights Movement
A Store For Life
P. O. Box 746
The name of our Restaurant is Cafe' Latte' Coffeehouse & Eatery. This is the locals favorite spot to hang out.
We started out in 1995 as a coffeehouse then expanded our menu to Breakfast and Lunch. I have been a vegetarian and almost a Vegan since 1980 so I have always been attracted to Vegetarian and Vegan Meals.
In 1999 we were relocated to our present location due to Emenain Domain and I wanted the opportunity to serve more vegetarian and Vegan meals so we did. We have met a lot of vegetarians and Vegans thru out the years and have become good friends.
Anyway, in March 7th of 2003, our friends Joann and Daryl put us in contact with Chas, the Coordinator of Compassion Over Animals Symposium at the University of Tampa and guess what? I made the decision of becoming a Vegan 100% that weekend.
I am very proud to say that we are presently thriving in becoming a totally Vegan restaurant. We have stopped selling eggs and now we started this last Monday the14th to offer Meatout Mondays thanks to Kelcey's FARM newsletter.
By now you can see that we are evolving. From mainstream to Now and is just getting better.
With all the information that I have been exposed to since the Symposium, I cannot see going back. Thanks to our good friend Joann that suggested going to the symposium.
If you are ever in the area, please stop by for the best Latte' of the best Vegan soy meals. Our address is :

The Meat Free Zone (MFZ) campaign is intended to make the MeatFreeZone logo as recognizable a symbol as the "Smoke Free Zone". The idea was originally conceived when The WARM Store in Woodstock, NY, was in operation throughout the '90's (Woodstock Animal Rights Movement). The store was truly a meat free zone as it was the first cruelty-free, Vegan, socially conscious animal rights store in the United States. Now that the Vegan and Vegetarian movements have been growing so rapidly, more and more people are showing concern about the food in their diet and their overall health and nutrition. Many people are giving up eating fish, chicken, beef, pork (pigs ), dairy (milk, cheese, yogurt, ice cream) and eggs. Headlines of Mad Cow disease, E-coli and salmonella are in the news with greater frequency. Vegan and vegetarian recipe cookbooks are standard now in all bookstores and many restaurants have added Vegan and Vegetarian options to their menus. We hope you will help us with the Meat Free Zone campaign by putting the signs up in your homes and workplaces and by spreading them to all the vegetarian and vegan restaurants that you know and frequent. And someday we will have true "meat free zones" in establishments that serve meat.
