First Review by will-travel-for-food

you thought it was just a dream, but it exists - Edit

This is the canonical breakfast place in Amherst center that is packed on weekend mornings -- like AN HOUR wait, cuz everyone wants IN.

Vegan breakfast options: vegan french toast, vegan rice flour omelette with choice of filling, vegan breakfast burrito, tofu veggie scramble, tofu southwest scramble and VEGAN pancakes WHEW OMG GO GET SOME.

They have soy milk for your coffee and earth balance for your toast !! Also: homefries and soy sausage. Bring your fam, go with your friends, great place.

Pros: has everything you dreamed of

Cons: can get busy, can feel rushed

be specific! - Edit

So while the breakfast and brunch here are tasty, you need to be very clear about cross contamination and ask about each ingredient. I have food allergies in addition to being vegan and have found that not all items are completely free of dairy due to shared prep and cook spaces. If you really need things kept separate, ask!

Excellent vegan options - Edit

I have eaten at the Lone Wolf for years and only one time did I have a problem with a little piece of meat falling onto my plate in the kitchen. During that one and only time, staff were extremely helpful and apologetic. My favorite item is the vegan breakfast burrito. It is huge with tofu scramble, black beans, and green salsa. I have also enjoyed the vegan omelette, southwest scramble, and vegan specials when they are available. I tend to frequent the restaurant during breaks from the college calendar, because during the school year there is often a very long wait to get in. I actually don't like the coffee here, and espresso drinks are not available, but this is not at all a deterrent to eat breakfast or lunch at the Lone Wolf. Definitely check out this fun place!

Pros: Excellent vegan menu, Excellent food quality, Fun ambiance

Cons: Poor coffee, Often long wait

Wonderful Brunch! - Edit

If you are vegan and you want to eat brunch in Amherst, you should go here. Seriously. The vegan section of the menu is small (maybe 6 items), but they're all great. (I've been here enough to try all of them.) Probably you are more groovy than me and this won't matter to you, but they don't have soda. When I asked if they had fountain sodas, the waiter looked at me scornfully. During the week, there isn't a wait for seating, but if you come on the weekend, you can expect to sit outside for 10-15 minutes.

Lone Wolf is a must for breakfast - Edit

Best vegan french toast and smoothies!! This place is another one not to miss. Love the atmosphere when its on the slightly less crazy busy side and I mean slightly, I haven't seen this place without a line out the door, even in the rain. They have something for everyone. Go!

Pros: Options, Vegan Smoothies, Great Food

Fantastic vegan breakfast options! - Edit

We have been going to The Lone Wolf (and, formerly, Nick's) for years. Their vegan breakfast offerings are outstanding, and the coffee is delicious! Some of our favorite items on the menu include: the tofu veggie scramble with red onions, pepper, mushrooms, broccoli, and fresh herbs; the tofu southwestern scramble with red onion, red/green/jalapeno peppers, tomato, and vegan cheese; the vegan pancakes with blueberries; the vegan breakfast burrito with seasoned black beans, tofu scramble, salsa, and vegan cheese; their custom vegan omelettes; and their vegan Benedict with spinach, grilled tomato, seared tofu, and vegan Hollandaise sauce on wheatberry toast. All delicious! If I had to pick one favorite, it would be the standard tofu scramble. It always has the freshest veggies and herbs in it -- not at all bland like many scrambles served at other restaurants. Give The Lone Wolf a try! On the weekends, get there on the early side to avoid a wait.

Pros: delicious vegan brunch options, great coffee, nice staff
