vegan brunch at pepples donut farm in oakland
on a recent trip to the bay area, we were super lucky to be treated to an epic vegan brunch at the donut farm by none other than laura, the queen of one of our favorite blogs ever: vegansaurus! it was so insanely good. fresh donuts, lots of savory items, and giant portions. dear donut farm, please open in LA. dear vegansaurus crew, i can’t wait for you to come to LA so i can take you out and return the favor. here’s what we ate:
biscuits AND DONUTS and gravy! fucking intense. having a breakfast donut covered in gravy is one of the most gluttonous/crazy things i’ve ever eaten, and i loved it. it came with hash browns too.
breakfast burrito w/ mole and potatoes. topped w/ avocado.
waffles w/ fixins and homemade vegan butter.
good old fashioned scramble w/ toast, potatoes, loads of vegetables.
if i lived in the bay area, i’d be at the pepples brunch every weekend! no doubt.
vita cafe is one of my favorite spots to hit up in portland. the menu is huge, almost entirely vegetarian, and everything on it can be made vegan. big hearty breakfasts, sandwiches, burgers, salads, entree platters, even tap beer—-vita has it all.

paradox cafe in portland
every vegan needs to visit portland before they die. the city is overflowing with amazing restaurants, pubs, and coffee shops—-almost all of which offer a plethora of animal-free dishes. i’ve heard it referred to as “the vegan capital of america”, and that sounds about right.
one of our favorite morning spots in portland is paradox cafe. the menu is mostly vegetarian, and almost anything can be made vegan. they open early everyday, and the breakfast rocks.
i highly recommend the biscuits and gravy…
as well as the smothered taters with almond gravy.
notice i recommended two gravy-heavy dishes. yeah, the gravy at paradox is ridiculously good. get over there next time you’re in pdx.
