NEWARK, NJ - The New York Times touted Vital Restaurant in Montclair, has opened their second eatery, Freetown Café at 41 Halsey Street (corner of Bleeker Street in Downtown Newark). The vibrant 27-seat café draws inspiration from the popular Vital Restaurant flagship destination, reminiscent of a Caribbean oasis, with a coffee bar, inspirational art, and African décor.

After tasting success with their first restaurant, Vital Dining, the brother-sister Williams trio landed an opportunity to open another eatery. Freetown Café was born with the mission to do more than serve great food. 

Brother Kwame Williams along his sisters Kanika and Nataki Williams designed the café to nourish the growing Newark community, satisfying the body, mind and spirit. Honoring the Jamaican town of Accompong, where the Maroons defeated the English and gained freedom from slavery, the café’s name represents tenancy, courage, and ingenuity; necessities for independent and entrepreneurial success.

Known for a passion and dedication to farm-fresh cuisine, Kwame takes this mindset to the world of coffee which compliments a menu built around fresh, natural flavors, with ample choices for people who have dietary preferences. 

Open early to serve morning commuters, Freetown offers premium Jamaican coffees, freshly made juices, smoothies, and house-made pastries. Whether pescetarian, paleo, vegan or vegetarian, Freetown is a place where we can all come to be satisfied!
