Located in the Crosstown Arts space on the second floor of Crosstown Concourse, Today & Always, is open Tuesday-Saturday from 8 am to 9 pm and on Saturdays for brunch from 10am-4pm. The menu boasts a selection vegan/vegetarian options that are both swapped out daily and featured year-round… get the name yet?

Not only is the food menu vegan/vegetarian, but most of the syrups in the cafe are also vegan and there’s a vast amount of non-dairy milk options, including oat milk. Yes, you can have that caramel latte guilt free! The cafe also has select ready-to-drink beverages, like Izze soda, wines, and beers from Crosstown Brewery.

Though considered a café, Today & Always is equipped with a full kitchen that serves heartier plates in addition to the lighter snacks and treats. From the Chicken Fried Tofu served with grits and collard greens, to the Barbecued Eggplant, there are options that even meat lovers can find satisfying. 

Oh, and if you thought it couldn’t get better, think again. The Art Bar, right across the way, serves craft cocktails from 5pm until 1 am every Tuesday-Saturday. So in actuality, you can have your morning meetings at the cafe and then treat yourself to a well-deserved cocktail at the end of your day.

If you’re interested in the café, check out the website or, better yet, stop by Crosstown Concourse, head to the second floor, and enjoy your latte and lunch!
