Cafe To Go Vegan After Owner Watches Documentary ‘Dominion’

A cafe in Idaho is set to go completely vegan after its owner watched documentary Dominion.

Dominion, directed by Chris Delforce and released just over a year ago, uses hidden camera footage from factory farms and slaughterhouses to shine a light on the horrors of animal agriculture.

Maria, the General Manager of High Note cafe in Boise, revealed that she was ‘terrified’ about changing her business – but unwilling to support animal suffering any longer.

Vegan cafe

“Whatever meat products we have now will be the last sold unless I find a better way,” Maria said in a statement. “I will make the High Note Cafe into a completely vegan establishment in the coming weeks.

“I do promise to still serve excellent food that everyone can enjoy. If it works out, great, if it doesn’t and costs me my livelihood, then so be it. I can no longer go forward knowing that I have supported great suffering and inexcusable practices by the meat/egg/dairy industry.

“I’m terrified, but I know I’m doing the right thing, and the right thing isn’t always lucrative or safe.”

Positive feedback

The announcement was met with many positive responses, with one commenter saying: “We need more brave and compassionate people like you! Thank you. It warms my heart when people actually care beyond their profits and tastebuds. You are the future we need. Sending you much love and success.”

Another added: “Your decision to move forward with a more compassionate approach is exactly what Chris Delforce had in mind when he created the Dominion documentary. Thank you so much.”

Even those who aren’t vegan got on board, with one respondent saying: ” I am a meat-eater but I love the High Note enough that I love and respect this decision and will continue to visit.”
