great for a vegan breakfast?
i'm entertaining a couple of vegan friends and we're looking for a spectacular but not terribly expensive breakfast place. any suggestions?
I wouldn't call it "spectacular", but your vegan friends might like Cafe Gratitude. Here's a link for their menu, locations and hours...
I haven't had breakfast there but I do enjoy their food, especially the "live pizza" and key lime pie. Really nice folks too.
If it's a bright fogless Sunday, Greens at Fort Mason has a beautiful view of the Golden Gate and I think brunch is now better than lunch or dinner there. Although most choices are egg dishes, I usually notice a vegan option on the brunch menu (like tofu scramble), but I've never had any and can't speak to how they taste. (But the egg dishes are delicious.)
herbivore has a lot of vegan breakfast options. there are two locations, one on valencia at 21st, and one on divisadero and hayes.
