Awesome Breakfast - Edit

First the bad: Dead animals on the walls and--for people with nut allergies like me--their pancake batter contains almond milk.

Now the good: Has tofu scramble which is very good, vegan home fries, vegan bacon, english muffin (also vegan), etc. Friendly staff, too.

I wish there would be more breakfast places where they have vegan pancakes (without the nut milks) and breakfast options around Florida. When I come back to Melbourne, I'll definitely come back.

Pros: Delicious Food, Friendly Staff

Cons: Dead animals on the walls, For people with nut allergies: Pancake batter is m

awesome. - Edit

They are really friendly and have LOTS of options for vegans. Not just one or two things or things for you to change they have clearly marked tons of vegan things. And that's cool. Bc in Melbourne that isn't always a thing. I'm so grateful. It's fun to eat here. They do have dead animals on the wall and that's sad maybe eventually more vegans will come and they will think we are neat and change that. Your kids will like it here bunches too.

Pros: lots of choices

Terrible choice for vegan breakfast. - Edit

We've been here quite a few times for breakfast and the quality of the food is inconsistent. Several times after we left our stomachs were VERY upset. They are very well aware that we are vegans, and for months they did not disclose to us that their b'fast potatoes were cooked in chicken broth. They say they have added vegan potatoes to the menu. The vegan bread option, english muffin, is typically stale. The tofu in the tofu scramble has a strange consistency...maybe it's frozen before it's prepared. We've ordered the tofu scramble before, and instead they brought out an egg omelette, which of course, we sent back.

There are stuffed ducks and antlers all over the walls, so that's a turn off for me. It is not really a vegan friendly environment. It is a meat-slinging establishment with a few vegan options on the menu. It's difficult to enjoy your meal in a place like this, with bacon and eggs and all kinds of animal products going by constantly. The smell of dead flesh permeates the place and it tends to get very hot when they are busy. The only good thing I have to say is the servers are somewhat friendly. I won't be back.

pretty good - Edit

You can make your own pancakes on griddles in the middle of the table - a pretty cool concept. The service was great but food was just so so. The vegan pancakes were a bit chewy and the tofu scramble was oily. The potatoes were wonderful and the veggie bacon was pretty good.
