Meet the ex-Olympian behind Brooklyn’s vegetarian cafe-spa

On a stretch of East Williamsburg near the Graham Avenue L subway stop, the low-key Earth Wellness Cafe is easy to miss.

But step inside, and you’ll find a warm spa-restaurant hybrid, with funky mismatched wooden furniture and ’80s music (think: Sade’s “Smooth Operator”) playing as the faint scent of lavender wafts through the air.

In the backyard is a small outdoor garden, and a downstairs yoga studio turns into a venue for comedy nights, dance parties, swing dancing classes and poetry slams at night and on weekends.

The laid-back vegetarian cafe and spa opened in August and is the brainchild of Nestor Cora.

After starting other businesses in the city, including a spa in the East Village, a cafe in Chelsea and a massage and nail salon in Williamsburg, Earth Wellness Cafe brings all of Cora’s healthy hobbies under one roof.
