One of the few vegan and gluten-free specialty restaurants in Wichita, Lotus Leaf Cafe, has closed

There aren’t many restaurants in Wichita like Lotus Leaf Cafe. And after 13 years in business, the eatery specializing in healthy dishes at 251 N. Washington in Old Town has closed.

The news was confirmed on the Lotus Leaf Cafe website, where an official statement was shared:

Thank You, Wichita!

Dear valued customers and friends,

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the closure of Lotus Leaf Cafe in Wichita, KS. Over the past several years, it has been our pleasure and privilege to serve this wonderful community. Your support, patronage, and warm smiles have been the heart and soul of our restaurant.

The decision to close has not been an easy one, and it’s primarily due to the economic challenges that we, like many businesses, have faced. We want to express our deepest gratitude to all of you for being a part of our journey.

Lotus Leaf Cafe has been more than just a restaurant; it has been a place where memories were created, friendships were formed, and delicious food was shared. We will cherish these moments and the connections we’ve made forever.

As we say goodbye, we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your unwavering support. Our community has been the driving force behind Lotus Leaf Cafe, and we will always remember the smiles, laughter, and good times we’ve had together.

Though our doors may be closing, the memories and the love that you’ve shown us will live on. We hope to see you again in the future. Until then, take care, stay safe, and keep enjoying the wonderful flavors of life.

This is yet another blow for our restaurant industry that could use more places that specialize in Vegan, gluten-free, and vegetarian dishes. It wasn’t food I necessarily sought after, but every time I stopped by, it was definitely worth it.

No word on what will happen with the space, but should someone take over, we will be sure to share the news.
