The Bad Waitress in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Sep 24 08

rating star

The tofu scramble here is abominable. The portion is tiny, it's overpriced, under spiced, and to add any veggies, it gets even more expensive.

I want to like this place. The atmosphere is cute and their beverages are decent, but the vegan options here are extremely unappetizing, especially compared to the other great vegan brunch joints around the city.

French Meadow Bakery and Cafe in Twin Cities, Minnesota

I end up at the French Meadow at least once a month. The Classic Vegan Breakfast is always great - perfectly spiced tofu scramble, fantastic vegan sausage made on site, and hashbrowns.

For lunch and dinner, I usually go with the Sweet Corn Arepas, which are topped with the vegan sausage and a balsamic reduction, atop mixed greens. My partner always goes for the Tempeh Reuban, and we often share the two between us.

The BBQ Tempeh wrap is vegan if you ask for no cheese - paired with the coleslaw, it makes quite a tasty meal.

I find their deserts disappointing as of late - the only vegan cake they offer anymore is the Turtle Cake, which gets old after the second time having it. They still have one or two vegan cupcakes, but the only item I can really recommend is the Raspberry Chocolate bar.

This location has been closed for quite a while due to the Calhoun Square overhaul - which is unfortunate, because the BBQ mock duck with potatoes was one of my favorite meals in Minneapolis.

May Day Cafe in Twin Cities, Minnesota

rating star

I live in Powderhorn, and end up at the May Day quite often. The vegan pizza, when available, is fantastic and has one of the best nut-based vegan cheese toppings around.

The scones are decent, albeit a bit subtle in taste. The soy latte, on the other hand, is by far one of the best in the city.

Namaste Cafe in Twin Cities, Minnesota

rating star

Namaste's dishes are consistently fresh tasting, simple, and filling. While I find the spicing to be a bit bland ( even at a spiciness level of 5, I can barely taste it ), the flavors are well balanced and authentic.

Highly recommended - especially with groups of like-minded individuals to share with!
