Tres Leches Vegan Pancakes

OMG the Tres Leches Vegan Pancakes were so fluffy & delicious! Such a sweet indulgence. Vanilla pancakes, sweet buttercream, almond, strawberries, oat milk syrup & pistachio brittle. The pancakes were in the limited spring special menu.
In the regular menu. I really love the Jammin Bene and will often come here when I have that craving.

Usually has decent vegan options

They were out of vegan eggs this time but had vegan pancakes on special. They have vegan bloody mary mix that was good as well. Service can be a little on the slower side so don't stop by if you're pressed for time.

Vegan Eggs Benedict

Most places that offer just egg simply throw it in a burrito and don’t try to elevate it in anyway. This place has a full on Benedict, with hollandaise sauce. It’s very impressive they also have a burrito for those who are looking for something big.

Pros: Lots of vegan breakfast options, Orange juice is 10/10 fresh

Cons: Bad customer service

The kind of place that any airport, shopping mall would be proud of :-(

There are about 6-8 of these Breakfast Republic's in the San Diego area, and after having tried one item (Harvest Omelet) at the Carmel Valley location, I'm not planning to return to any of them. Of course, if a group I'm part of decides to go there (most of my friends are not vegan), I will return and try something else--but not "egg" [SIC] based.

I am NOT at all satisfied with their using the "Just's Vegan Egg" products. A long time ago I was in the US military stationed overseas. These vegan "eggs" [SIC] are a very close approximation of those instant powdered eggs we suffered through. Such food products (along with the impossible burger, etc.) are what I call "foods for people in transition"; foods for people that try to be vegan but can't leave the taste, etc., of animal products. (The best vegan foods, IMHO, are not trying to be "something else.")

Pros: They do have vegan items, Many locations

Cons: Most vegan entrees use "Just's Vegan Eggs", Place feels like an airport, mall (cookie-cutter)
