I am very surprised to read the poor reviews here on Happy Cow. Penny Cluse is a don't-miss for me every time I visit Burlington, which is about 4 times per year. When we go for brunch my vegan boyfriend and I always order the tofu scram with peanut ginger sauce. We get the toast un-buttered and a fruit plate instead of the potatoes. It may be the only vegan breakfast option, but it's sooooo good. It would be awesome if they'd make the potatoes with oil instead of butter, but they don't.
We are always prepared for a wait. While the staff does seem busy, no one is ever rude. In fact, I find the opposite-- that they are always very friendly. And I've always felt like they've tried to make up for it with speed from the kitchen or free juice if the restaurant is chaotic. By the way, the fresh juice is amazing. We take non-veggies here and they love the food, so if you need a place for brunch for both vegans and non-vegans, this is your place!
Cons: Few vegan options., weekend brunch long wait times
