Captain Steve, Mimi’s husband, can often be spotted sneaking in & out as he makes improvements to the cafe and yoga studio.
The Captain Steve is also a sandwich, named after Steven. It is the type of sandwich that is ordered when you are ready to conquer the day. It is a sandwich that leads by example: it does not boast or brag, but is simply great. It is there for you when you need a good pick me up. It turns a bad day into a good day, and a good day into a better day. It is a reminder that with a little bit of good fuel, you can make a difference.
This sandwich is a favorite among our regulars. It is a breakfast sandwich (but served all day!) that comes on an Iggy’s bagel loaded with tofu, tempeh bacon, avocado, the famous house cheese, and homemade salsa verde. It is pressed & served hot with a side of chips.
The sandwich is named after Steven because he is not just the fix-it man. He is an explorer, world traveler, carpenter, scuba diver, dedicated father, loving husband, and of course, a captain. He leads by example: he does not boast or brag, but is simply great and empowers others to work hard. He recognizes the big dreams of Mimi & their family, and builds them into a reality. As Mimi is the heart of the cafe, Steven is the back-bone that makes it all possible. Together, they’ve created the VO2 Vegan Cafe to remind us that with a little bit of good fuel, you can make a difference.
