The proliferation of vegan-friendly spots continues throughout Jersey City as a new business from a familiar name has launched on the ground floor of a prominent residential building.
Located at 60 Columbus next to a Base Gym facility, Power Plant Café launched its new health and eco-friendly business last month. The endeavor is the second Jersey City enterprise from Sam Boyce, who also operates a vegan meal prep service in Bergen-Lafayette dubbed BoyceMode.
Power Plant Café offers a wide variety of fresh-pressed juices, wellness shots, and smoothies, with concoctions that range from a kale, spinach, and banana option to a “peanut butter cup” drink that utilizes plant-based milk.
The café also offers healthy BoyceMode vegan meals on a rotational basis, with early entries including a creamy spinach and artichoke mac ‘n’ cheese or a plant-based buffalo meatball sub. Baked goods like the recently rolled out spiced pumpkin protein muffins, snacks, and coffee from The Grind round out the menu.
Power Plant Café offers early morning hours starting at 6 a.m. on weekdays and can be followed on Instagram at the handle @thepowerplantcafe. They are the latest vegan-friendly establishment to hit Jersey City over the last two years, joining Plant Base in Bergen-Lafayette, Salt + Seed in downtown JC, Rosita’s Yah near Journal Square, and the recently opened Gãia & Loki, with Brooklyn-based Nûrish slated to open along Communipaw Avenue later this year.
