Magnolia is my favorite late breakfast/lunch restaurant! They have a few vegan options but I usually get the same thing every time. The tofu scram is the best!

Magnolia Bistro is a cozy vegan-friendly restaurant in downtown Burlington. There are only a few vegan options on the menu at Magnolia, but all of them are well-labeled. The menu is also careful to mention that most options *can* be made vegan (although this seems to mean that they can omit certain ingredients, like cheese).

I ordered the french toast, which was made on walnut bread and had a wonderful flavor. There were two other tasty-sounding vegan breakfast options (tofu scramble and granola) as well as a couple of vegan sandwiches. I was disappointed to find out that the veggie sausage is not vegan. However, I was glad that my waitress was knowledgeable about veganism and was able to steer me away from ordering it.

In addition to being vegan-friendly, Magnolia makes a conscious effort at ecological conservation. For example, the bathrooms each have two trash bins in them: one is for "compost" items (like papertowels), and the other is labeled "landfill" (and has a list of items that cannot be "composted").
