Delicious food!

Highly recommend for vegans! I came on a Tuesday morning soon after they opened and had my pick of seats. I absolutely loved the Veggie & Pesto Frittata and wish I had more time to go back and try each of the 5 clearly listed, delicious-sounding vegan menu options. The iced coffee I ordered came with frozen coffee as the ice cubes and a side of oat milk that I could add to my coffee to liking. The waitress was also extremely kind. Definitely suggest stopping by - just note this is not on the ground level but rather up the stairs/elevator from the street!

Pros: Multiple options, Kind service, Delicious food

Vegan section on the menu

The location is nice and there’s plenty of seating as they also have many drinks (their Bloody Mary is vegan). The portions are so generous! I had the vegan breakfast burrito and couldn’t finish it. I liked it, although it felt like something was missing (a touch of freshness, a fruit maybe?) but that’s my own taste.

Actual vegan options 🥹

Love that they use JustEgg. Very nice staff! Good people-watching views if you get a window seat. The vegan dishes are served on plates that say “#vegan” 😂😂 anything that helps them not put animals on my plate!! 🫠

We had the tres leches pancakes and frittata along with mimosas and it was a very filling meal— reasonably priced as well!
Would definitely return. Super close to the beach too

Great breakfast spot for vegans and omnis. I got the vegan Benedict and it was soooo good! The potatoes were crispy and flavorful. They have special vegan plates that are so cute! Great service and we had a large group!

Pros: Vegan menu makes it easy to order, Vegan Benedict!, Great service and ambiance

Cons: Stairs to get up to restaurant

Excited to see a vegan menu here. My friend who is not vegan ordered from the vegan menu because the server spoke highly of it and it sounded really good on the menu.
We got the vegan frittata and vegan harvest omelette. I really enjoyed my frittata. The potatoes looked so dry but ended up being yummy, soft on the inside and well seasoned.
My friends omelette had vegan Italian sausage inside it and I thought it was good and she enjoyed it despite not being vegan.
The fresh squeezed orange juice was delicious.

The service was so great. Our server was so nice, chill and had a great friendly vibe. Someone from the kitchen came near our table and saw my wheelchair and then looked under the table and saw broken foot. He said Ill have them send them out something on the house. He was so kind and sent out the Brussels sprout roasted potatoes. They were delicious and he really didn’t have to do that but it was so incredibly kind and we really appreciated it.

Yummy food, great service. Would definitely be back.

Lotsa vegan choices - looks better than it tastes

I was excited to eat the Just Egg omelette on the plentiful vegan brekky options. It looked gorgeous but tasted pretty mediocre. Having eaten Just Egg before, I know it can be delicious. The breakfast potatoes were outstanding tho.

Small menu but big flavor

I appreciate that there was a vegan section on the menu, but it only included 3 options. That said, the “omelette” was fantastic with spicy “chorizo”! Perfect for veg friends to get brunch. Plus yummy cocktails and kombucha

Vegan Bloody Mary Mix!

The Bloody Mary’s were delicious! Cool spot for brunch. Wait time was 30 minutes, but it ended being about 10 for 2 people. I ordered the Jammin’ Bennie, it was sweet and savory. Can’t wait to try out another dish!

Pros: 3 actual Vegan Dishes, Great Drinks
