Lots of vegan and vegetarian options

Over Easy Cafe serves breakfast and lunch all day, including various vegan options. Taking pride in their food local and organic ingredients are used as much as possible . The menu includes French toast, specialty omelets, tofu and tempeh scramblers, homemade biscuits and gravy, hot cakes and croissant sandwiches. Offering a variety of breakfast meats including bacon, turkey bacon, local sausage, local smoked trout, and smoked salmon...all are organic hormone and antibiotic free. For lunch there is a variety of sandwiches and other daily specials. Over Easy also offers fresh squeezed juices and smoothies as well as organic coffee. Different local artists are feature each month.

Note: Over Easy Cafe used to be called "Melanie's Food Fantasy", so some people might still call it by its old name.

This place had great service, and there was a line of people waiting to be seated the whole time we were there. Over Easy Cafe must be popular for a reason, but I don't recommend it to vegans.

The vegan options were limited and not clearly marked. I had the Maple Tempeh plate (or whatever it was called). It was clearly trying to be some sort of bacon substitute, but the tempeh was underdone and I wasn't a fan of the marinade. My wife had some *huge, vegan pancake. I understand that it's trendy in Asheville right now, but gluten free pancakes should be outlawed. I didn't love the breakfast at the Green Sage, but I'd recommend it over the Over Easy Cafe.

*Like really huge. Just order one.

Great spot for Sunday brunch. It can be pretty crowded on Sunday mornings, so get there early. Lots of vegan options, nice staff, cool atmosphere.
