We used to love the Catalyst when we were vegetarians (and before we knew about rennet in cheese). As vegans, we still have to acknowledge that it is one of the few places in Missoula that actually has something vegan on the menu, however they could do better!!! There are very limited vegan breakfast items... basically toast with jam. But, for lunch you could get: at least one of their daily soups is vegan, and most of the sandwiches could be vegan if you removed cheese AND GET THE GLUTEN FREE BREAD. The bread typically served is local Le Petit Bakery's Birdman bread. However, this has honey, so if you are vegan, ask for Tandem Doughnut's gluten free bread. It is gluten free and vegan.
So there are indeed vegan options at the Catalyst, and it is a cute place, but we wish that they would add some more vegan variety with the same flair they've brought to vegetarianism in Missoula. We're waiting...!Pros: clearly labeled , carries Tandem Doughnut's vegan bread, vegan soup option
Cons: salads all have cheese, main bread used has honey
