Vegan restaurant brand Stem & Glory is moving to a new larger site at the prestigious CB1 site in central Cambridge, part of the city’s burgeoning new business and cultural quarter.
The award-winning plant-based restaurant will take up the ground floor in one of Cambridge’s largest office buildings at 60 Station Road.
News of the move to a bigger site was first revealed by FEJ last July.
The restaurant, which has been designed by world renowned designer, Afroditi Krassa, fronts Station Road, just metres from Cambridge railway station, and has a large outdoor terrace.
Supported by a generous landlord package and a capital grant from Cambridge & Peterborough Combined Authority, the site will open end May 2021.
At this new site Stem & Glory will offer its new vegan pizza concept alongside its healthy and innovative vegan menu, and will also feature breakfast and brunch offerings.
The site is built to service both dining and off-site sales, which is a rapidly growing part of the business.
Stem & Glory founder Louise Palmer-Masterton said: “We have been looking for the perfect site in Cambridge for quite a while, after outgrowing our existing Cambridge site soon after opening. We’ve watched the amazing CB1 regeneration project grow over the past few years, and we are really looking forward to joining now that it is nearing its completion. For us, it’s the most exciting quarter in our home town of Cambridge.”
Stem & Glory will join some of the world’s most successful brands at the mixed use CB1 development, including Microsoft, Apple and Amazon.
As well as the restaurant, Stem & Glory will provide a stylish cafe within the office building at 60 Station Road, which is also home to WeWork.
Ms Palmer-Masterton added: “We survived and thrived during 2020, and we are looking forward to resuming our expansion plans in 2021 and beyond. We feel very fortunate to have had the amazing support of our customers and our 1200 strong investor community throughout the past year.
“Opening our doors again last year saw both our sites extremely busy, and we are feeling very optimistic for the rest of this year. With more and more people opting for healthier lifestyles post Covid, we see our expansion as a fantastic opportunity to help people live healthier and more compassionate lives.”
