Newfound Atlanta Caribbean Soulfood restaurant, One Luv Cafe ATL is excited to announce that it will be celebrating its first year anniversary this month. Entrepreneur and Chef Sandy Soulfood Howard opened One Luv Cafe ATL in 2019, ten years after running a successful mobile food delivery service from the trunk of her car. The restaurant’s motto ‘health conscious food cooked with love’ is a mashup of Soulfood, Caribbean, and Cajun cuisine. One Luv Cafe is based on the westside in Upper Midtown, one of Atlanta’s hottest rising neighborhoods.
“We would like to give special thanks to all our customers who have made our very first year in business a success,” founder of One Luv Cafe ATL, Chef Sandy, said. “It has been a heartwarming journey and we are looking forward to the next years with much anticipation.”
The restaurant’s vibrant homey atmosphere, genuine customer service, and beautifully prepared fare with organic herbs and spices keep guests coming back asking for more. Jerk Chicken, Baked Turkey Wings, Seafood Jambalayah, Braised Beef Oxtails, Vegan Island Nacho Salad, Jerk Salmon, and Curry Shrimp are top sellers.
Chef Sandy Soulfood graduated from Buffalo State College with a BS in Textiles. A former Apparel Designer from NY, she discovered her passion for cooking after moving to Atlanta and falling on hard times. During the recession of 2008, she was unemployed and needed cash and decided to go out and sell food in her community. Through many trials and errors, the self-taught chef learned to master her craft and create a niche for herself.
One Luv Cafe ATL’s menu is inspired by the African Heritage Diet, based on whole, fresh plant foods, rice, whole grains, meat, poultry, and seafood. The African Heritage Diet is a way of clean eating based on the healthy traditional diets of people with African roots.
“My ancestors brought many wonderful food traditions to the Caribbean, South America, and the U.S., but over the generations, these healthy food traditions were lost and substituted with fast processed foods labeled with words unpronounceable. Chemicals! Wreaking havoc on our bodies. Our restaurant, One Luv Cafe ATL is restoring the health of our community, reversing disease, and ultimately saving lives simply by offering healthier food choices.”
