NORTH NAPLES — The new Cider Press Café’s local dining concept offers surprises at every turn.
Before its soft opening last Wednesday, the vegetarian and vegan restaurant already had 800 likes on its Facebook page. It became a victim of its own success, though, when those social media friends showed up, stayed for three-hour meals and ordered many of the inaugural dishes on the short menu. The modernist, plant-based restaurant temporarily closed Saturday to regroup and restock.
“Many items take days to prepare. We are not yet able to keep up with demand,” general manager and co-owner Roland Strobel posted on Facebook.
The restaurant partners won’t be penalized for the false start. In fact, they seem to have built even greater anticipation for the venture’s unique dishes.
“It has been anticipated because it is so completely different,” Strobel said. “The food is very labor-intensive since we don’t cook anything.”
Food temperatures are kept below 117 degrees to preserve vitamins and provide maximum nutrition and flavor. The idea is to taste food the way it naturally was meant to taste.
