At Oh My Soul Cafe we strive for a world where every earthling has the right to live out their whole life. We believe the earth was made for all beings not just human beings, "My soul honours your soul". Our soul is the sacred essence within us, it is the spiritual part of the body. All creatures are deserving of a life free from fear and pain. If they breathe they live, if they live they feel, if they feel, they love, if they love, they are aware, if they are aware, they have a soul. Oh My Soul makes a difference in this cruel world by creating awareness, and being kind through serving 100% cruelty-free, plant based food where no beings have been harmed in the process. We are fighting to continue to keep our name. Oh My Soul Cafe, has been accused of infringing on Chicken Licken's trademark "Soul" and wants us to remove all use of the word, including "food for the soul". Chicken Licken states that we are diluting their identity and "piggy backing" off of their fame and advertising. Oh My Soul Cafe does not believe that we are confusing or deceptively similar in anyway and have two completely different concepts, target markets and belief of the word "soul". We are the only 100% vegan cafe in Durban and believe we are doing good for the environment and the community. Veganism is a way of living which, seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation, of cruelty to animals for food, clothing or any other purpose.
