What started as a pipe dream turned into a reality when owner, Leslie Naylor, opened the Sanctuary Vegan Cafe. She wanted to offer southern comfort vegan food in Knoxville. Naylor had always wanted to rescue animals, and after talking with her daughter they came up with a plan. Proceeds from the restaurant would benefit her 4 Them Sanctuary in Sweetwater, TN.
Sanctuary Vegan Cafe has been up and running for three years! Every tasty dish purchased from the cafe goes towards beautiful rescue roosters, pigs and lambs.
