Hugh Jackman-backed coffee brand opens vegan cafe in NYC with help from local vegans

Hugh Jackman’s Laughing Man Coffee brand has just opened its first all-vegan cafe, Laughing V, in Tribeca, New York

Hugh Jackman’s Laughing Man Coffee has opened the doors to its first vegan cafe in New York, Laughing V.

The Vegan Cafe is located in downtown Tribeca and offers an array of vegan pastries, sandwiches, and cakes.

Located on Diane Street, the vegan cafe is one of the first all-vegan restaurants in the area.

Laughing V was born with the help of Tribeca resident and vegan cook, Lauren Evans.

Evans was a regular at Laughing Man Coffee but found their vegan options lacking.

Laughing Man was founded in 2011 by Hugh Jackman with David and Barry Steingard.

The vegan cook reached out to the Steingards with a proposal for a restaurant-ready vegan menu, including starters, desserts and more.

Additionally, the founders were inspired and launched Laughing V under Evans’ leadership.

Evans worked with the brand to develop a cafe-style menu that showcases the potential of vegan cooking.

Since the launch, local vegans have been flocking to the site to sample Evans’ plant-based delights.

Although Hugh Jackman is not a vegan, the Laughing V opening will be the founder’s first vegan venture.

Laura Evans’ plant-based menu is bursting with unique colors and flavors.

Plus, Evans makes the ingredients from scratch when possible, including their own seitan.

Diners can enjoy vegan sandwiches such as tofu caprese sandwiches, Philly cheese steaks and spiced sweet potato sandwiches.

In addition, there are also vegan palms, fresh focaccia and Linzer cookies.

Drinks include a selection of coffees from the Hugh Jackman-backed brand, as well as a hot pink caffeine-free matcha latte.

The vegan cook continues to develop and expand the menu, promising there are “lots more exciting dishes to come”.
