Lancaster’s new plant-based powered eatery is set to open in September of 2018. Tivoni – Pronounced “TivONee”, means “Vegan” in Hebrew, chef Gili Kieffer’s native language.
The cafe will take a spot at 805 Rohrestown Rd. that is former home of NY Bagel shop and will be opened for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Sunday and ready-to-go breakfast items served Tuesday through Friday. Tivoni will have seating for up to 30 customers, including pick up options at the counter.
Chef Gili Kieffer lived and traveled to many places before eventually moving to Lancaster in 2007, where she started a vegan meetup group in 2016. She is passionate about sharing her love of food inspired by her travels with the Lancaster area. Some middle eastern dishes from her childhood are also a part of the main menu.
The counter-service vegan restaurant highlights a good variety of health-minded items, including veggie power bowls, soups, healthy small plates, smoothies, as well as indulgent vegan desserts. Soups and some dessert items change daily. Many gluten free options are available as well as oil, sugar & salt free items as well.
Stop in during the first month of opening for a free cup of coffee and cupcake (while supplies last)
