SO MUCH GOOD STUFF
Posted on 07 / 05 / 2015
Calling all vegetarians and vegans everywhere!
This place is too awesome and too delicious!
Let's start with the breakfast options: over 20 different flavors of oatmeal, served a ton of different ways (hot, cold in soy/almond milk, in a parfait, w/ coconut oil, or cooked into pancakes). I am not great at meath, but I think with all those options, you could come in hundreds of times and try something different. Also, like someone else mentioned in their review, this is the first palce I have found with vegan pancakes (which you can also get gluten-free on request). Yum!
Then there is the lunch time options: five different vegan burgers that they have made in-house. Every vegetarian and vegan I know has been forced to eat the one vegetarian option at a restaurant, a flat, cardboardy veggie pattie from a freezer box, but ladies and gentlemen, the Oatmeal Cafe knows what they are doing here! Each burger is served with a side of fresh veggies and hummus, and I just went last Saturday to discover they were serving cold soups on the side as well! So refreshing in the Arizona summer!
Don't pass this place up, whether you are vegan, vegeratian, gluten-free, a voracious meat-eater or anything in between! The staff is incredible and I could go on and on about the food forever.
I have been so many times now that I feel like I can give a reccomendation for each way the oatmeal is served, just to help you out the first time you go:
Hot: Cranberry Maple Pecan
Muesli (cold w/ almond or soy milk): Blueberry Vanilla Almond
Parfait: Walnut apple pie with apple sauce OR Banana Bread with yogurt (ask them to add peanut butter)
w/ warm coconut oil: Cocoa Mayan (chocolate/vanilla/cayenne)
Pancakes: Blueberry vanilla almond or Chocolate PB
Burgers: Try them all!!! (But maybe start with the Hillbilly BBQ)
delicious food, inexpensive, great staff
