Great Vegan Brunch

Good selection of vegan breakfast and brunch dishes, all well marked on the menu. Super friendly staff, able to accommodate requests and suggest vegan substitutes for anything else. The food is delicious! Ambiance is fun, nice background muaoc, comfortable with a nice bar and lots of tables and booths. Convenient parking lot. I want to try all their vegan menu, so I will definitely will be back for more.

Just plain bad

UPDATE 10/7/2021: I had to come back and dock it another star because I just had one of the saddest meals of my life from here. I got the Pancake Monster for delivery. $19 for two eggs, two pancakes, a sausage link, home fries, and cheese. $22 to make it all vegan. I get my food and it's basically lukewarm, raw tofu with some pepper for the tofu scramble. Small portion of potatoes. Super thin, DRY pancakes. Vegan sausage was ok? Overall waste of money. Just drive into the city for donut villa or veggie galaxy.


I used to like going to the one in downtown Boston but I hit up the Danvers one maybe a month ago and the menu is radically different w/ only three or so options out of a massive meat & dairy heavy menu.

I also felt very ill that night and am suspicious they were not particularly careful with cross contamination.

Pros: The only diner with vegan options until Malden

Cons: Few options , Cross contamination

I’ve tried the vegan chocolate chip pancakes, breakfast burrito, and vegan pasta and they all tasted so good!! They also have vegan ramen, burger, power bowl, scramble, and tofu sandwich. The atmosphere is also really fun! Great for bringing non-vegan friends as well.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Delicious , Nice atmosphere

Vegan Diner Options!

Really excited to have found some vegan diner food in the area - without having to go Boston. It’s pricey, but hey, what isn’t these days.

The wait staff seems to be hit or miss when it comes to being vegan savvy, but luckily there are a few options on the menu that are vegan as is. I would recommend the Vegan Breakfast Burrito over everything else for breakfast. It’s delicious and you know for sure it’s vegan.

The John Scrambo “made vegan” is pretty good, but there seems to be a bit of confusion over what toast is vegan. They have confirmed for sure that the gluten-free toast is vegan. But it’s $1 more for gluten-free toast, so I just opt from now on to get it without.

I love that things are clearly labeled on the menu and that there’s vegan cheese.

We haven’t tried any of the dinner stuff.

Pros: Vegan cheese, Clearly labeled options , Breakfast!

Cons: Wait staff may or may not know about what’s vegan

Vegan breakfast and lunch!!

A cute 50s theme diner with great music, also lots of vegan options for example vegan pancakes, vegan tofu bowls, vegan sausage for breakfast sandwich (English muffins are vegan but do include soy), vegan breakfast burrito, and also vegan ramen, and a burger option!

Pros: Lots of vegan options!
