Wish it had more vegan options

Posted on 09 / 14 / 2013

I wish this place had more vegan options but they're very good about veganizing the vegetarian options. I love the atmosphere and the staff has always been friendly and helpful. My favorite plate to get is the Kates Scramble, without the vegetarian sausage (it's not vegan) or the cheese and toast. They replace the toast with a bagel that IS vegan. It's a great dish.

Pros: Great staff, fun atmosphere , TONS of food, will feed you for days
Cons: not that vegan friendly, bit pricey

Great atmosphere, few vegan options

This place has a very interesting kitsch decor and is very popular, so you may be up for a long wait during peak times (especially Sunday brunch). They have very few on-the-menu vegan options (only 2 on my last check), which don't appeal to me, but they can do off-menu substitutions and after I discovered the tasty "vegan-version Guy Scramble" (a tofu scramble with avocado and nice seasonings, with home fries), I started to like it better.

If you make brunch plans with vegan-hostile omnivores, this is a good choice, but if your friends are vegan-friendly, much better options exist, especially True Bistro (Sat/Sun all-vegan brunch) in Somerville or Veggie Planet (Sunday all-vegetarian brunch with good vegan options) or Veggie Galaxy (breakfast-anytime diner with lots of vegan options) in Cambridge; Veggie Galaxy is not far from The Friendly Toast, maybe 1-1.5 miles (a long walk or short drive).

They have an interesting cocktail menu.

Pros: great atmosphere, friendly staff, vegan-version Guy Scramble
Cons: very few vegan options

Good food. Popular, long wait

Went here when we visited Boston. Had a long wait, even in the summer time when campuses are emptier. Had a few options. I got a good hash brown scramble. Interior is tacky 50-esque, but good if you like that sort of place.

Cons: Long wait
