Breakfast and Lunch place with lots of vegan optio
Posted on 02 / 17 / 2013
Oh yeah! A breakfast place with vegan options other than Mother's Market in our area! We've been going to Mother's Market for breakfast for years and are getting tired of it. Freesoulcaffe is very close but they are so expensive and all we can get is a waffle or baked goods. Finally, another option other than Mother's, we can go to, where we can enjoy a vegan breakfast early in the morning on a Saturday and Sunday. We've been to this place 2 times for breakfast. I tried another time for lunch without my husband. I had great meals those 3 times I went.
My favorite is the Vegan Sweet Potato Scone and Ranchero Burrito vegan style (with tofu and no sour cream) for breakfast. I like the crunch walnut soyrizo in the burrito. Their coffee is also so good, a great combination with the scone. What I tried for lunch was the Taco Salad with soy chicken. Their roasted buffalo cauliflower and chipotle ranch dressing is so good. All their salad dressing are home made and vegan. The salad was so healthy with roasted pumpkin seeds, black beans, and avocado.
I also tried the Vegan Red Velvet cookie. Yummy but overpriced for a little cookie.
I tried their Vegan Sweet Potato hash burrito (with kale). Good! I tried it as a bowl style but wished that I had it in a burrito style. For people that are eating gluten free and low carb, that's the way to go. However, for me it needed something else to make it a more satisfying meal (may be additional roasted potato, rice, or quinoa).
My husband tried the Blue Plate Special but didn't like it much. He tried the Breakfast Sandwich with tofu and liked it better. He likes carb so a breakfast burrito needs to be accompanied by a scone or muffin. I don't eat as much so the burrito was too big. I guess we both need to come there several times to know what to order but we both enjoyed their coffee very much. I also tried a vegan chia seed muffin that I didn't like that much. I didn't like the chia seed after taste.
The place is eclectic. Artsy! Sort of remind me of Gypsy Den but has a cleaner look. Bright, airy, cheery! Lots of interesting arts done by the owner. It is a family restaurant run by PJ Meads, her husband Gary, and son, also Gary. I love to support a small family restaurant like this. I hope they will be successful.
Everything was served on a recyclable paper plate, cups, etc. Very casual and not high price! This place will be our usual hang out.
