Supreme Ruth is my favorite brekkie to order!

The Supreme Ruth is delicious and I recommend it to everyone I know. My omni sister has it with me every time we go there and it’s not even a discussion. I tried the tacos as well and they were also tasty, but I don’t think anything can beat the supreme ruth.

I usually don’t like English muffins b/c they can be pretty dry, but these are moist and are the perfect carb to pair with a flavorful, meaty patty with cheese that melts very well and can even crisp. The sauce is FANTASTIC and is one of my favorite parts of the “sandwich”.

I also love getting the blueberry danish to split and it’s a very nice sweetness with the creamy center. The fruit flavor comes thru clearly and isn’t overpowering at all. The danish itself is also pretty flaky and melt in your mouth. One of my favorite desserts to get for sure. I highly recommend this place!

The cookies and cream cake slice as well as the cupcake are also to die for 😍

Best breakfast sandwich

Picked up to-go food while passing through town. The Hangover Cure is now tied for the best breakfast sandwich of my life (tied with one from a vegan restaurant in San Antonio), holy cow so good. Quarantine breakfast burrito also yummy. I regret not trying any of the pastries, what was I thinking?!?

Best Vegan Breakfast

One of the best vegan breakfasts I’ve had! My fiancé had the Hangover Cure Bagel Sandwich and it was so good! I got the Quarantine Breakfast Burrito which was also another great menu item! After, we picked up chocolate chip cookies, and a blueberry streusel muffin that topped off the perfect breakfast! The outdoor seating is beautiful and I can’t wait to come back!

Best breakfast tacos, possibly ever

This is a great little place with a nice area for outdoor seating. The menu is clearly labeled for those with dietary restrictions, and everything is vegan. I ordered the breakfast tacos (gluten free, nut free), and they didn't disappoint. Wish I would have gotten a picture, but I just dove right in...amazing. I highly recommend the Lunch Room Bakery & Cafe!

Pros: Large and clearly labeled menu, Friendly staff, Delicious food

Cons: None

Everything is good, some things are great

I stay away from soy as much as possible so my favorite items here are soy free. The baked goods are amazing. Try the beet bop boop bagel sandwich, always get the soup of the day, and a baked good if you want something sweet.

Incredible place!

My first time here! Brannon was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. I told him what I was craving and he recommended the Grand Slam. It was really great! The portions were large so I took half of it home. They have containers for sale so that you can be environmentally conscious too. I bought one for $5. Thanks! I will be back again soon.

Pros: Totally vegan menu, Soooo delish!, Friendly, outgoing, knowledgeable staff

An everything vegan bakery and cafe. The almond croissant was perfection. Great locally roasted coffee and breakfast options like nowhere I’ve been. The breakfast tacos had it down to a culinary science. A zesty cheese sauce to top. The grand slam looked great too, I had a few bites. Especially liked the spinach on the side. Chill music in the background, floor to ceiling windows, nice layout for tables and booths. Really wonderful staff. I didn’t want to leave.

Hidden gem

Hands down the best Lunch Room location. The Friday breakfast specials are unique and delicious (different kinds of waffles, French toast, croissants sandwiches, etc. Sometimes sweet, savory, or a mix). They announce them beforehand on Instagram.

Pros: 100% vegan, Friendly staff, Chill location

Awesome Spot for a Treat

For a lunch date with a friend, this place is my go-to. Everything I've tried has been delicious, and it's all vegan! Whether I'm going out with meat-eaters or fellow vegans, it's got something yummy for everyone.

I crave this place.

Chai is usually very good. Cinnamon rolls amazing. Plenty of seating, very friendly staff. But I crave their hangover cure bagel sandwich- YUM. Love the dessert selection and daily soups. Wish they were open a little later so I could bring my kids here for after school snack.

Pros: Yummy breakfast and lunch options, Pretty easy parking and plenty of seating

Cons: Wish they were open a little later, and weekends
