Quite a Few Vegan Breakfast Options

The vegan choices are clearly marked. Not just odds and ends of a la carte items, but full breakfast fare.

5 Star Vegan Breakfast!

So many options! We chose the vegan quesadilla and the "Popeye" tofu scramble. They were both delicious and filling! The quesadilla came with yummy vegan sour cream. Both also came with tasty potato wedges. Coffee was also great with soy or almond milk options.

Wait staff was friendly, helpful, and knew their vegan!

Lots of menu options!

Everything on the menu is clearly labeled as vegan, and there’s quite a few options for decent prices. There’s pancakes, challah French toast, waffles, a few tofu scrambles, vegan quesadilla etc. the food was great and I love places that remind me of the places I’d go growing up, like nostalgic diner vibes. Definitely will return when I’m in the area!

Great options

You can find a lot of great vegan breakfast and lunch options here. They have three different tofu scramble dishes that are served with vegan sausage, they also have vegan pancakes, waffles that are served with vegan butter and they make a vegan challah French toast! All highly recommended and delicious. Their lunch options include a vegan quesadilla with cheese, veggies and chorizo and a vegan burger. They serve non dairy milks as well for coffee and the staff are well informed on vegan options and what they are serving you. I’ve been going here for years and take anyone that comes into the area!

Vegan & GF breakfast paradise

The tofu scramble is so-so in my opinion, but the gf vegan pancakes and waffles could not be better. Does not take reservations. Busy on weekends.

Breakfast cravings satisfied✅

Vegan breakfast- especially outside of the home- can be hard to come by. So when I heard about the Maywood Pancake House, I had to make the trek. My family and I were not disappointed 👍🏽

They have a few different tofu scrambles to choose from, vegan pancakes and waffles, French toast, and milk and butter alternatives. The challah French toast was a little dry, but there were some major breakfast cravings that were satisfied that day 🥞🤤🧇.

Despite the long wait time the service was pretty quick. Will definitely be making the trek back 🙌🏽

Pros: Lots of vegan breakfast options , Pretty quick service

Cons: Long wait time

Vegan pancakes, hash browns and milkshakes, what more can I ask for?! Love coming here. However, I don't recommend the tofu scramble unless they improved it - when I tried it a couple years back it was very lacking as are many places. They can be very very busy so be prepared to wait and sometimes I think bc of the rush things may be undercooked. But I still love it here!!

Pros: Great vegan options, Yummy vegan breakfast diner food!

Cons: Weekends can have long wait times, Tofu scramble bland

one of the few gems in my area

Wish I can give them five stars, but since it’s not a fully vegetarian or vegan restaurant I can’t 😓. Found this little gem about a year ago or longer. I’ve ordered from here before I went fully vegan (I was a vegetarian). Love their waffles, pancakes, and vegan sausage! I love coming here for their food

Vegan pancakes and breakfast- oh my!

The vegan food is amazing and consistent. I love my chocolate chip pancakes, French toast amercaine and more! HOWEVER- it’s a nightmare to eat there. Always crowded and the service leaves a lot to be desired. Get your vegan brunch- just take it to go. And be very clear about wanting vegan butter. Once I ate there, ordered vegan pancakes and they gave me real non-vegan butter. They apologized (barely). I only love their food because where else can you get fluffy vegan pancakes and French toast?

Pros: Vegan pankcakes, French toast and more!

Cons: Not always friendly or smart- repeat your order, A nightmare to eat in

What a shame

We have given this place chance after chance after chance. We’ve found hair in our food on three separate occasions. We’ve had horrible service (not the norm) and have had the servers laugh at us when we found hair in our food the third time. The manager has always tried to do damage control, but today was the last straw. First, there was a hair in our menu- not just between the pages, no- between the plastic where the pages are inserted which tells me the menus aren’t cleaned (or they are, but in a mediocre fashion at best). Anyway, my fiancé asked if they could make a vegan breakfast sandwich with tofu scramble, cheese and sausage with a side of home fries. When the good came out, the waitress said, “oh we can’t put it on a sandwich because it’ll fall out. So here’s a platter with toast so you can make your own.” Uhm, that’s not what we asked for. If you thought there would be a problem, come and inform us so we have the option to order something else. Additionally, they gave us a side of sausage which they charged for instead of giving a breakfast sandwich price. We asked for a BREAKFAST SANDWICH, not a “make your own” platter. After today, we will not be back. It sucks because I love vegan breakfast options, and I really wanted to love this place, but after all this, I just can’t.

Pros: Decent coffee, Variety of vegan options

Cons: Dirty, Expensive, Damage control instead of making changes

excellent overall

Great spot with plenty of options for everyone. Vegan and gluten free items are clearly marked and the servers are knowledgeable. When the waitress learned that we were friends out of town, she asked if we were vegan and went through the menu with us to make sure we knew our options.
Pancakes, waffles, scrambles, burgers, smoothies, milkshakes and more

Pros: lots of vegan options
