Welcome To the Neighborhood Fox & Fig!
We met Clay Ehmke when he was a barista at The Coffee Fox. When we found out he was opening his own spot, Fox & Fig Plant-Based Café on Troup Square, at the edge of Savannah’s Beach Institute neighborhood, we were pretty excited.
Fox & Fig is located on Habersham Street, just off of Troup Square. While the space was formerly inhabited by a restaurant, the space has been renovated and is much improved. The interior is mostly white walls, floors, and furniture, with accents of lilac. This sounds like a potentially bland combination, but it’s not. Instead, the space is light, airy, and serene. The case filled with cinnamon rolls, brownies, truffles and macarons is hard to miss — and even harder to resist. Outdoor seating is also available for you to enjoy a cup of coffee and a bite and watch the passersby on this increasingly bustling side of town.
Like its sister locations, Fox & Fig serves local favorite PERC coffee, so you can’t go wrong with any of the coffee drinks. The café also serves milk shakes featuring Leopold’s Coconut Cream Ice Cream, as well as a variety of teas.
We decided to stop by for breakfast. I went for the Soaked Chia Porridge and the hubby decided to try the Breakfast Hash with Cashew Hollandaise. Besides chia seeds, the porridge also has blueberries, strawberries, candied lime peel and pepitas. The Breakfast Hash includes sweet potatoes, cauliflower, and shiitake bacon, all topped with cashew hollandaise.
While the café menu is brunch-based for now, Clay told us that he will be adding more items periodically, and that they look to add a full dinner menu in mid-December. This new menu will also include expanded hours — they are open from 8am-6pm for now — as well as craft beer and wine offerings. We plan to return soon for two items that are already on the menu — the Jackfruit Tacos and the Fox Burger. Stay tuned.
