The Prophet Vegetarian Restaurant is now WorldBeat Cafe. Same owner and chef, Makeda Cheatom. Menu has changed since The Prophet.
The Prophet Restaurant served all types of people from locals to celebrities like George Harrison of the Beatles, Hue Masekala from South Africa, Jane Fonda. Dick Gregory, health specialist, Gloria Swanson. Dr Ann Whigmore, who taught us how to grow wheat grass, and health gurus like Dr Bronner and Dr Bernard Jenson. The Prophet was in the health and natural food movement that later changed the world; and look where this movement has taken the natural food business. Vegetarians and health-food aficionados from all over the country came for such unique dishes as African groundnut (peanut) soup, the “Bangladesh” sandwich (a patty of soybeans, vegetables, and curry served on pita bread), and the famous carob cheesecake. Nonalcoholic beverages as African ginger beer, gardenia and rose daiquiris, and a wheat grass mint julep and wheat grass hopper were also served. "What we eat feeds the soul of that person. Cause you have to be a conscious cook. That's what I want, conscious cookery. You can kill people with the way you cook, or you can change their consciousness. It's soul-to-soul. The vibrations are heavy.”- Marianne Makeda Cheatom. The Prophet Vegetarian Restaurant is now housed inside of WorldBeat Cultural Center as WorldBeat Cafe. Makeda continues to be the owner and chef and has created a new menu with Caribbean and African influences.
