Vegan Brunch! - Edit

I was super satisfied with brunch. I've been here about 4-5 times now. I realized it's a bummer when they don't have a vegan special because then you're kind of stuck with their tofu scramble (which is absolutely delish) and not much else. I've tried the vegan pancakes which was a special and absolutely recommend! My boyfriend and his friend that came with me are meat eaters and said it's one of the best brunch spots they've been to. It's nice that there are options for everyone! Not impressed with the drink menu though... every drink I've ordered tasted weak.

not great for vegan breakfast - Edit

We went for breakfast and had the tofu scramble- kind of oddly prepared, as it's just cubed tofu with peppers and mushrooms. Not terrible tasting but wouldn't order it again.

Pros: big portions, gf bread available

Cons: vegan breakfast not great

nice to have vegan options - Edit

My office often orders lunch from iron gate, my favorite is the black bean burger, it's homemade and has good flavor, love the avocado and homemade ranch (depends on who prepares it, toppings can be skimpy). I've also enjoyed the "Joey" breakfast sandwich w/ tofu, daiya and sausage. That also hasn't been too consistent.. One time the sausage tasted like tasty seitan, another time it appeared to be Morningstar... Which isn't vegan. The two seitan sandwiches also have consistency issues... The philly relies on daiya cheese, which a couple times they only mention they are out of when they call my order as ready/it gets delivered. The buffalo wrap has been awesome, but I stopped ordering after it once was made with breakfast sausage seitan... Super weird flavor combo w/ hot sauce, ranch, celery and carrot.

Pros: yummy seitan!, interesting vegan options, vegan soups and cookies

Cons: consistency issues
