Fox & Fig
With a beautifuly plated and creative plant-based menu Fox & Fig has both locals and vistors buzzing!
A little over a year ago, Fox & Fig Cafe opened its doors, creating the first plant-based restaurant in Savannah. With a non-existent market for vegans, Clay Ehmke, co-owner of Fox & Fig decided to fill the gap. After working under Foxy Loxy owner Jen Jenkins, for over three years the two collaborated on the idea. With 6 years in the making, Fox & Fig has introduced locals and tourist alike to creative plant-based menu options and exotic ingredients. With less than 20 percent of their customer base actually being fully vegan they’ve proved their menu hits all demographics. •
