Serves meat, vegan options available. Long time established, old school diner. Few vegan choices including vegan pancakes, tofu scramble, soy milk for coffee at no extra charge, and fresh fruit. Be sure to specify if vegan.

First Review by will-travel-for-food

not exactly vegan - Edit

This restaurant has a nice vibe and friendly staff, but the vegan pancakes and tofu scramble are cooked on the same section of the grill as many other non vegan breakfast items (menu includes bacon, eggs, ham, etc). If that doesn't bother you and you do decide on the pancakes, the only syrup they have is one packed with preservatives, caramel coloring and lots of other ingredients i couldn't pronounce. I decided to get a fruit bowl which was nicely presented but for $7 I would at least expect all the fruit in it to be ripe. Not a great restaurant pick if you're serious about being a vegan.

Pros: honest friendly staff

Cons: not really vegan

number 1! (try the) - Edit

I'd disagree with the review saying to disregard this restaurant if you're vegan!...I've been vegan for 15 years and going to Louis for almost as long!...I'd recommend: 1) tofu scramble number 1 with dry italian toast with french fries or soup subsituted for the home fries, 2) spinach or broccoli pie with grilled veggies on top and sauce on the side 3) grits or oatmeal with fresh fruit

Check out the pottery while you're there! Some weird and cool pieces scattered around

Pros: good value, local, weird

Cons: a little bit greasy , sometimes need to add lots of salt

Very cute, but vegans should avoid it - Edit

This is a funky little establishment, but avoid it if you're vegan (despite the fact that they have vegan options on the menu). The tofu scramble is just plain, kind of wet tofu with some onions and turmeric for yellow coloring. No spices or seasoning at all. (Gross.) The vegan blueberry pancakes were pretty dry. Sadly, the coffee is pretty weak, too. Maybe it's good for the meat and egg eaters! If you're vegan, try Rasoi's Saturday morning brunch instead.

Pros: cute greasy spoon feel

Cons: very bland food, never refilled coffees
