Bland and uninteresting

The five items on the vegan menu are basically all “Mexican” inspired (definitely not authentic) and were the same 10 ingredients just arranged in different ways. The tortillas on my Sunrise Tacos were delicious but everything else was totally bland. No seasoning or salt. All of the ingredients were super fresh and I had some of the jam my husband ate with his non-vegan biscuit, and it was fabulous. It took a long time to get our food even though it wasn’t crowded.

Pros: Fresh local ingredients , Healthy

Cons: Limited variety, Lack of seasoning, Long wait for food

Big big burrito

Got the breakfast burrito with all the added options and it was way bigger than a chipotle burrito. Super yummy and filled me up for almost 12 hours

Now has a dedicated vegan section

This restaurant now has a full vegan section in their menu!
Staff was very nice.
For a small restaurant that is always busy, you don’t feel packed in or forgotten.
I got the vegan breakfast burrito with the works. It was very good. A little sauce heavy with the world added so I might leave that off next time. It says it came with salsa but I realized they forgot it after I was done. Salsa wouldn’t made it perfect!
Would definitely come back. Glad to see even more vegan options offered here now!
And for food in Monterey (especially vegan food) this place is pretty reasonably priced.

Wonderful Vegan Options

This is a sweet cafe with indoor & outdoor seating. They make everything with care including baked goods. Plenty of breakfast & lunch options. The service is very friendly. This could be our new “go to”.

Pros: Excellent quality , Wonderful service , Large portions

Cons: Small interior, Bathroom is in another building

Adorable Artisan Café

The Wild Plum is an adorable artisan café with lots of vegan options! Their menu has a few vegan options but also lists that most of the other menu items can be made vegan. You can ask the server if you're concerned. I had the Sunrise Tacos and they were absolutely delicious!! They also have oat and cashew milk for coffee drinks. A bit pricey, but highly recommend this cute little café!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Nondairy milk options

Cons: Pricey, Limited seating

Vegan Breakfast Yeah!!

Looking for more than just Oatmeal? This is your spot while traveling to Monterey. They will take any egg based breakfast item and make it a vegan option with tofu scramble. I had the Vegan scramble lots of fresh organic vegetables and non meat chorizo wife had tofu breakfast tacos. Avocado toast is good and so are all coffee options made with almond soy or oatmilk.

Pros: Vegan options , Oatmeal. Coffee options, Fresh organic produce & homemade bread

Cons: Service was ify but owner was nice & comped us!

Delicious vegan breakfast

The wait was long because it was a Sunday morning but the food was absolutely delicious. They have tofu, vegan chorizo, and vegan cheese. They can substitute the tofu for any egg dish. They were really good at subbing it. I had the morning tacos and my Mom had the Mediterranean dish with egg subbed. Both were delicious and healthy! I totally want to go back!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Vegan substitutes

Cons: Long wait

Not for Vegans

Unfortunately, even though the reviews say they'll make vegan food, and their menus say to talk to the server about vegan options, the food they brought out included dairy. If you're vegan, I'd look for another place to eat.

Cons: Staff unclear in what vegan means

Not Many Vegan Options

I went to Wild Plum last Saturday with high hopes. They are very clearly proud of their organic, fresh, and local foods, and I’m always happy to support that. That being said, the vegan options were fairly limited unless you would like to replace meat with tofu every chance you get. That being said, I ended up having the street tacos with vegan chorizo. They were actually amazing! It did take quite a while to get them, but they were worth the wait. I wasn’t very thrilled with the price, though. The tacos were fairly small, and the beans and salad that preceded the tacos didn’t make me feel like they were worth $17. Anyway, all of the staff I encountered were very friendly, and the place was quite charming. I’ll likely give it another shot in the future.

Pros: Food was very tasty, Cute spot , Friendly staff

Cons: Pricey , Slow , Not many vegan options unless you love tofu
