Yumzio Bistro will be moving and opening their new location in the heart of downtown Greensburg at 41 North Main St. in the beginning of August and bringing a much needed expansion of vegan and vegetarian options to town.
Yumzio opened in 2018 in the former Mister Bones location on North Main Street. After almost a year in business they made the decision to move into downtown Greensburg to reach a wider demographic. They will be opening in the space that housed Sun Dawg Cafe before they moved 2 doors down in September of 2016.
“Our new space is a better location for us and once I saw it, I knew I could do something with it,” said Taylor Kalasky owner. “We looked at 4 or 5 locations before choosing this one. We were lucky to find one that had been a restaurant so we didn’t have to change zoning or make any major changes.”
They’ve had the space for over a month, making small changes, giving it a deep clean and painting the entire space. It’s been a challenge to get everything up and running while still being open 6 days a week but plan to open very soon. Luckily, its been a relatively smooth transition and the city of Greensburg has been helpful in getting them in the new space.
Yumzio is known for having ‘vegan, vegetarian and everything in between’ on their small but tasty and healthy menu. They will be keeping everything on their current menu and will focus on expanding their vegan and vegetarian options. When they open, they’ll be offering new vegan french toast, tofu scramble and hash plus a vegan style traditional breakfast with tofu, toast and hash browns. Their everything wrap, which is similar to a breakfast burrito, will now be able to be substituted with tofu or jackfruit to make it vegan.
“Everyone is watching what they’re putting in their bodies and we strive to offer many healthy options to our customers,” said Kalasky. “Everything is steamed or baked and we use very little to no oil in our food. Not only that, but people are trying the vegan food who aren’t even vegan and loving it.”
They not only serve breakfast but also have a variety of in house made soups, salads and sandwiches for lunch. Open 6 days a week, Yumzio will be closed on Wednesdays but open on Sundays. They also will offer delivery through DoorDash and GrubHub.
“I’m very excited to be down in town,” said Kalasky. “It’s the right move for us and we’re excited to current and new customers stop in to say hello.”
