In a place where small businesses have difficulty keeping their doors open, three local entrepreneurs have collaborated and built an eatery at the corner of S Salina and W Fayette St.
Original Grain is the product of Cafe Kubal, Urban Life Athletics and Modern Malt.
Matt Godard, owner of Cafe Kubal, Eric Hinman, owner of Urban Life Athletics fitness gym and Chris Bily, a former partner of Modern Malt have given downtown Syracuse a new taste.
Original Grain offers a variety of health food for people on the go. They offer loaded toast, protein packed salads and picturesque brekkie bowls.
The restaurant also provides a place for young people to gather, the manager said.
“I see a lot of young people come here to study, business people having meetings. It’s kind of like a coffee shop,” Taylor said.
Original Grain first opened it’s doors in late August.
