So Fresh and so Clean, Clean!

We went here for Mother's Day brunch. The brunch specials included Berry Bliss French Toast, and Banana Fosters pancakes. As I looked around I saw some people with what looked like regular old wheat toast, topped with berries. I feared this was their version of french toast (but I never inquired) so I ordered Banana Foster pancakes and the Vegan Breakfast Burrito (sans the tortilla and cheese).
The pancakes were...weird. They did not taste like pancakes. At. All. It was like a funky dough, stuffed with bananas. I wondered if we were mistakenly given gluten free pancakes. Alas, I did not ask. The bananas were fresh, and it didn't taste "bad," just...weird. My brunch date had the Berry Me Alive smoothie, which she said was very good and satisfying.
My vegan breakfast burrito (naked)/bowl was very good! The spinach was fresh and raw, to my surprise. This gave an extra kick to an already flavorful bowl. It was perfectly seasoned and had lots of fresh veggies. (I keep saying fresh b/c it was SO fresh!) It was supposed to have bacon (tofu bacon) in it, but I did not see any bacon. I enjoyed it, nonetheless. Both of our dishes came with fresh fruit (in season oranges and strawberries; both sweet and delicious!)
We were given a personal pitcher of water for our table, which I love, because I drink lots of H2O.
The service was very friendly. Everyone was so nice. It was busy, but we were able to get an outside table.
It's located in a strip mall off of Guadalupe and McClintock. There was no main, overhead sign when I went, so I missed it from the street. Just go into the Trader's Joe's parking lot and drive past the Walgreens (or CVS), and it's in a corner to the left.
I will return to try some of their other menu offerings (I saw meatloaf!), and to ask about those "pancakes" which did not taste like pancakes.
flavorful burrito bowl, food was very fresh, friendly service
weird consistency pancakes, hard to find; no over-head sign, not cheap
