UKRAFT’s second location is now open downtown. In addition to the local fast-casual brand’s menu of wraps, sandwiches, salads, grain bowls and breakfast items, the new storefront – which opened on Jan. 11 – also features fruit smoothies.
As reported by Feast in October, UKRAFT fills the space previously occupied by 6 North Cafe, allowing the business to expand its delivery radius. UKRAFT is co-owned by brothers Matt and Mike Ratz and began as a food truck in 2018. Its first brick-and-mortar location debuted in Clayton the following year.
“We’re a healthier fast-casual concept that is served conveniently through dine-in, pickup and delivery. We have a focus on catering as well,” Matt says. “We offer a little something for everyone including gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options.”
The fast-casual café serves paninis, avocado toasts and grain bowls.
Online ordering, with the option of curbside pickup, is currently available. From the menu, choose from popular UKRAFT items such as a Baja California wrap with black bean-corn salsa, pico de gallo, avocado, pepper Jack cheese, antibiotic-free chicken and chipotle-lime vinaigrette.
The flavor combination, along with many others, is also available as a salad or grain bowl made up of a wild rice quinoa blend. Vegan options include a Caribbean jerk jackfruit with cabbage and mango slaw.
The breakfast menu features favorites such as the Southwest Sunrise with a local free-range egg, turkey sausage, avocado, pepper Jack and chipotle aïoli – available as a sandwich on brioche, wrap on a grilled tortilla or served in a bowl over sweet potatoes.
According to Ratz, smoothies are made with frozen fruit and protein powder from 1st Phorm based out of Fenton, Missouri. Build your own or choose from six different flavor combinations such as chocolate-peanut butter and banana with chocolate protein, peanut butter, bananas, oats, cocoa and almond milk.
“We’re really excited to be downtown,” Matt says. “We’re happy to bring a healthier fast-casual concept to the area.”
UKRAFT’s downtown location is currently open Monday through Friday from 8am to 3pm as well as Saturday through Sunday from 9am to 2pm.
