Bagel shop with tofu cream cheese, eggplant, veg burgers and more
Bagel Rising is a fairly vegan-friendly establishment, with several tofu spreads for bagels, soymilk for coffee, and a couple of easily veganizable lunch options. They occasionally offer vegan baked goods, as well. They have a loyalty card that offers a free sandwich or drink after you've bought ten.

This is a quick-serve bagel shop with a couple interesting vegan options. I had the vegan "tequila sunrise" ($6) which is loaded with tofu, baked eggplant, cream cheese and other seasonings; it's really tasty but boy is it messy.
I wish Bagel Rising had more traditional vegan options, such as a bagel breakfast sandwich made with vegan sausage, marinated tofu and some pepperjack Daiya cheese or maybe some seasoned cashew cheese.
All that said, Bagel Rising offers a tasty vegan option (and a make-your-own option) and it's a nice thing to have when you're hungry in the morning.
There always seems to be a line going out the door at Bagel Rising. That said, it's well worth the wait - the tofu "cream cheese" is amazingly good and comes in six flavors. I especially like the garlic tofu spread. I was less of a fan of the soy chai (it didn't have much flavor and came unsweetened).
