Great Vegan Options

Had brunch here. The vegan breakfast burrito was great: tofu scramble with veggies and the option to add Field Roast sausage and vegan cheese. They also have a variety of vegan baked goods and plant milks for coffee drinks.

Pros: Several vegan options , Friendly staff, Outdoor seating

Every time I visit, I feel like I’ve wasted money

Zola's has a pleasing handful of vegan food options available at any given time, and the choices are different every time I go in. I've tried several baked goods as well as a vegan breakfast burrito, and I've been disappointed every time. The dishes are bland and lack any kind of distinguishable flavor, and all of the baked goods I've tried have been incredibly dense. They taste like someone tried to follow a recipe but was missing a couple ingredients. Just because I can swallow it without gagging doesn't mean you should open a restaurant and charge the public $7 a slice. Every time I leave Zola's, I feel like I've wasted money.

Zola’s is doing quite a bit in a community that doesn’t have a lot of this kind of food to offer, but it just tastes like lazy cooking. A teaspoon of baking powder would go a long way.

If I go to Zola’s now, it’s just for the coffee.

Delicious vegan options!

We visited Zola's cafe twice (breakfast, lunch) while we were in Auburn. We wish there was something similar to the town where we live in Oregon. So delicious!

Breakfast: Vegan burrito with tofu scramble and vegan sausage. A+ and very sharable
Lunch: Eggplant panini (minus dairy cheese) with homemade focaccia bread A+
Salad: Zola salad (minus dairy cheese) A+
Baked goods: Banana Chocolate chip muffins A+

Zola's has amazing vegan options and is open breakfast and lunch.

Pros: Many vegan options , Vegan baked goods, Outside seating and dog friendly

Cons: Wish there were more vegan options.

Great and ample options for an Omni restaurant

Came to this shop not expecting many options and having to custom order food. Asked the server what vegan options are available, turns out there's more options than the menu states. All salads are veganizable, some paninis were too. I got the eggplant panini and it was to die for! Would come out of my way for this again. (I live in Seattle)

Pros: Surprising amount of vegan options, Friendly staff/great atmosphere, They make their own focaccia bread 🤤

The vegan options were delish! I tried the vegan panini and husband tried the vegan burrito so we shared! Great choice because both were sooo good! We also bought the vegan Twix bar and it did not disappoint! We will be back soon.

Pros: Good service, Nice flavor

We had the pasta salad, the Zola bowl, the breakfast burrito and a wonderful mango strawberry and lemon cheesecake. Great food and service. Creative dishes. Friendly people. So happy to find this gem where there are very few vegan establishments. Would have given them 5 stars, but couldn’t because Happy Cow doesn’t allow a 5 star rating if they are not 100% vegan or vegetarian.

Pros: Friendly service, Easy parking, Creative dishes

Pretty good!

We had Mac n cheese which was pretty great actually. The pumpkin muffin was hearty and yummy but the vegan quiche was dense and not really quiche-like. It was yummy, but it wasn’t quiche. The coffee was good.

This place is such a nice little cafe! They have plenty of vegan options and lots of delicious looking vegan baked goods. All the food is made there with fresh ingredients and be warned, they have pretty big portion sizes! Lots of beautiful art work to look at plenty of friends to be made!

Pros: Friendly people, Big portion sizes, Lots of vegan baked goods

Cons: A bit expensive but still so good!

Not a disappointment at all!!!

I recently found this place and have NOT been dissapointed. the atmosphere is super cute with paintings all over the walls and plenty of seating. The daily specials arent on the menu but posted on a board next to the cash register. I've tried the vegan quiche and the super seed breakfast muffin things. They were both delicious and I will continue to visit this cute cafe!

Pros: They have a ton of seating and a lot of vegan choi

Cons: Some items are spendy but worth the price
