Respond to Review of Cafe Blossom - Upper West Side - temporarily closed
Review: Went to Blossom this past weekend for brunch and LOVED it. What a treat (and challenge!) it was to have a totally vegan menu! We ordered the Pink Lady and Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake for beverages; the juice was perfectly balanced and the shake was creamy and delicious. My boyfriend had a Butternut Squash soup and French Toast - I got the Tofu Scramble. The soup was to die for, the French Toast was practically eggy!, and the traditional scramble well done and yummy. The scramble came with a side of tempeh bacon, which was great - it was in the spirit of bacon, but it wasn't trying to "be" bacon. I have had some traumatic experiences with fake bacon, so this was a nice change. We split a Lemon Cake for dessert.. frosting was lovely, cake was eh. Waitstaff was wonderfully attentive and friendly. Downsides? It's pricey.
