Brunch. With small children. And vegan. Possible?

The title sums it up. Any part of Manhattan, any price point. Any ideas?

    Gazala? Plenty of kids and vegan options. it's not a traditional brunch menu, though.

      Maybe Sacred Chow?

        Under similar circumstances, we went with the big brunch places. Colicchio & Sons, Maialino, & Bowery Bar. Kids and large party and the ability to take reservations, convenience trumps intimacy.

        We had a sometimes vegan in the party, but wasn't sure if she opted for an egg dish.

            Without a doubt Pure food and wine. Best vegan in the city. Save room for dessert!
            Second choice candle cafe, more casual peacefood cafe or casual and "hippie food" angelika's kitchen.
            Call ahead if you will need a high chair, i wouldn't assume they're available.

              Agree with Candle and PFC. The Blossom restaurants are all great too (including V-Note). Also, if you are looking for an omnivore place with an amazing vegan menu option, try Essex. It might be a bit busy/loud for kids, but the dish (vegan mexican matzoh brei) is SO good. And not sure what they're doing for brunch these days, but Ellary's Greens is a super spot as well. (Ditto The Organic Grill for vegan omlettes! Though it's pretty small and more casual than the others.)

                On the casual end, any of the Westville locations will also work, though even without kids, I'm partial to Hudson Square cause it's bigger and there's never a wait.
