THE CAFÉ

It is often said that “we are what we eat,” and we’d like to add to that “we are what we do” – actions and deeds.

about us

about us

Founded in 1975 by Arthur Gordon, owner/chef, the Irregardless Cafe opened as the community’s first vegetarian restaurant and evolved into a restaurant featuring a diverse menu of healthily prepared fresh foods. The Cafe’s and Catering meals encourage their patrons to “eat lower on the food chain”, providing delicious vegan, vegetarian and gluten free meals. The Cafe and Catering menus also feature beef, lamb, seafood, poultry and duck meals accented with lots of local produce. From the beginning, the Cafe’s management was dedicated to innovative sustainability initiatives that promote healthy living and giving back to the community. If you are looking for a true Raleigh farm to table restaurant experience, come visit Irregardless!
