A Canadian chain of health food restaurants is planning to set up shop in downtown Lincoln.

Fresh Healthy Cafe, a Vancouver, B.C.-based chain, is planning a location in the Stuart Building at 13th and P streets. The company's website lists the Lincoln site as "Coming Soon."

It appears from the address on a building permit that it will be going into the space with the address 144 N. 13th St., which is the former Embellish clothing store space.

According to its website, the restaurant offers salads, protein bowls, wraps, paninis, smoothies and juices.

This will be the first Fresh Healthy Cafe in Nebraska; the closest current location is in Denver. The chain has locations in nearly a dozen states, three Canadian provinces and in Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates.
