A new cafe on Bangor Mall Boulevard will highlight vegetarian and vegan menu items and other healthy treats, capitalizing on a growing nationwide trend toward plant-based diets.

Little Gem, which opened Tuesday at 109 Bangor Mall Blvd. in the same development as the Bangor Mall Hannaford, is owned by Maggie Bauman. She moved with her mother, Sara, to Bangor last year from Toledo, Ohio, where for more than a decade they helped run a successful family restaurant called Grumpy’s.

Little Gem serves an array of salads, bowls, wraps and smoothies, most of which are vegan or vegetarian. Maggie Bauman, 31, said Grumpy’s was renowned for its salads, and that she learned everything about cooking from her aunt Jennifer, who was the chef there.
