Our motto, "Conscious Food" is about eating healthy. We want to inspire people to think about what they put into their bodies and how it affects the community and our planet. We are what we eat, and when we choose to eat right, our bodies can be healed. Food is Medicine! One Luv Cafe ATL is playing a part in reversing the disease in our community with our nutrient-rich, holistic, and natural ingredients, conscious food. Healthy food. Sustainable food.
