Vegan friendly vegetarian coffee house


Besides coffee and tea, Mother Fool's serves pastries, muffins, scones, and cookies. Homemade soup is available at lunchtime. All the food is vegan, although they do serve cream cheese and milk for the coffee.

The wireless internet is free for customers.

This is a nice hippy/punk coffee shop with great vegan options. All the desserts are vegan, they have a decent selection of loose leaf tea, and there's no extra charge for soy milk in your drink.

They have a good mix of couches, arm chairs, and more standard tables, so it's a great place to hang out for a couple of hours.

Frankly, anywhere on the East Side of Madison is a wonderful place in my opinion, and Mother Fool's Coffeehouse is verily in keeping with my mentality. The mismatched couches and chairs, graffitied wall, and classic Madison hippie baristas all contribute to give Mother Fool's the warm and fun atmosphere of the East Side.

Food and drink-wise, Mother Fool's always has a bakery case stuffed full of vegan cupcakes, cookies, tarts, pastries, bread rolls, and my favorite sun-dried tomato bread. They also have a vegan soup-of-the-day and all their drinks can be made with soy milk at no extra cost. A welcoming, delicious, and vegan-friendly cafe fit for the East Side.
