Soon, a vegan sandwich and bake shop will open in downtown Hood River. The new spot, called Golden Goods, will be at 111 Oak St, Hood River, OR 97031 (look next to Andrew's, where the fro yo places used to be).
The shop is the creation of Savannah and Chad Hinman. You may recognize the couple from the various hats they wear around town. Chad at Broder Ost and Savannah used to manage Basik Acai Cafe.
The duo plan to open the doors some time in May. Then, they'll shut down for a few weeks as they welcome their first child.
We dropped by today and the space was sunny, bright, and inviting. Savannah and Chad have brought their own touches to the space, including tiling they did themselves. Look around and you'll see the influence of their friends on the space. Audrey Mae, known for her rad artistry, painted two pieces on their walls.
So what's there to know? Golden Goods will be Hood River's first fully-vegan eatery. It will serve veggie-forward sandwiches focused on real food instead of meat substitutes (think: lentil meatballs on the meatball sandwich). Much of the bread and baked goods will be made in-house, but some things, like any gluten-free vegan bread, may be brought in from elsewhere. There will be kid-friendly items on the menu. For drinks expect kombucha, juice, espresso and hopefully beer and wine (with time, their application is under review with the OLCC).
That's it. That's what we know! We're excited to see everything when they open soon!
