Grand Opening of Holyoke Hummus Cafe

Holyoke Hummus Company is happy to announce the Grand Opening of their new cafe at 285 High Street in Downtown Holyoke on Thursday, March 23 at 11am. Owners John Grossman and Dawn Cordeiro have been bringing falafel, hummus and other Middle Eastern treats to the people for the past three years first with a food cart and then a food truck, The Great Garbanzo. "We're excited to continue to grow our business in Holyoke and bring another lunch and dinner option for those living, working and visiting downtown." says John Grossman. The event will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse at 11:00am. The event will run until 7 p.m. To thank customers, Holyoke Hummus will be giving away tubs of Holyoke Hummus.

In addition to falafel and hummus, the Holyoke Hummus Cafe's menu includes soups, salads, potato latkes (pancakes), babaganoush, and desserts like chocolate babka, all made from scratch. The menu is vegetarian and mostly vegan but Dawn Cordeiro states "it is hearty enough to satisfy the meat eaters in the crowd." For young customers that don’t love falafel yet, the cafe offers a $2 kids menu, with items like Pita Butter & Jelly and Pita Pizza. The cafe offers local Dean's Beans Coffee and Hot Chocolate and Tea Guys Tea. The cafe seats around 25 patrons with booth and table seating. There is also a small children’s area with books and activities for kids of all ages.

Cafe hours are Monday, 11-3, Tuesday-Thursday, 11-7 and Friday, 11-3.
