Couple Natacha and Philippe David founded one of the newest vegan restaurant in Los Angeles, L.A. Vegan Crepe at the beginning of 2013. 

The couple, originally from France, decided to come to America and start a French café in Jacksonville, Fla. However, after opening the café, the couple became vegan and decided to offer vegan options on their menu.

“The people in North Fla. are not receptive to vegan food yet,” Natacha said. “It was getting more and more difficult for me to cook meat and fish everyday… We decided to sell the cafe and go back to California where we met ten years ago.”

The couple explained that of all the states, Calif., and in particular Los Angeles, is the most receptive toward vegan foods. Philippe said that since moving to California, their business has been doing well.
“It’s the place to be,” Philippe explained. “In the whole California from North to South, more and more restaurants are vegan and vegetarian.”
L.A. Vegan Crepe serves a variety of items on their menu, including tempeh burgers, smoothies, and, of course, vegan crepes.
