Vegan musician Andrew Hurley—the drummer for popular band Fall Out Boy—recently opened vegan café Oracle Coffee Company in Portland’s South Waterfront neighbourhood.
Andy Hurley, best known as the drummer for Fall Out Boy, is a vocal advocate for animal rights and veganism, and has often spoken about his lifestyle choice over the past few years. In fact, his new band Sect has only vegan members and has been described as a “hardcore, vegan punk supergroup“.
In an interview with peta2, Hurley spoke about how vegan eating was developing, commenting, “[i]t’s just unbelievable. When I [first went] vegan, you had to walk 5 miles uphill in the snow to get food. Now you just go to any grocery store, and they have Daiya cheese or Gardein products or tons and tons of stuff.”
Now he has taken his love for vegan food one step further and has opened up his very own vegan cafe. The store is called ‘Oracle Coffee Company,’ and can be found in Portland’s South Waterfront area.
The shop serves its coffee, alongside a range of plant-based milks from Califia Farms, Oatly, and Pacific Foods.
If you fancy grabbing something sweet with your drink then there’s a range of vegan pastries of offer from the nearby Shoofly Vegan Bakery, along with a selection of vegan doughnuts! The doughnuts are available in flavours such as Cinnamon Twist and French Toast, and come from Portland’s very first vegan doughnut shop Doe Donuts.Photo: Doe Donuts
