Veggie Galaxy, Cambridge MA
Over the weekend, Elizabeth, Jess and I joined another nutrition-nerd pal for brunch at Veggie Galaxy in Cambridge. This was my second time at VG and I was SO excited to go back. Funk and I recently went for lunch and I enjoyed a delicious vegan “omelet” with Taza hot chocolate. Before I even got there, I knew exactly what I wanted to order: Stuffed French Toast. I don’t think I’ve ever had stuffed French toast before even in my pre-veg days, and I haven’t had French toast in years. Years! It was time.
Veggie Galaxy’s stuffed French toast wasn’t just any plain old stuffed French toast. No. This was stuffed with vanilla nut vegan cream cheese, topped with caramelized banana butter, strawberry basil sauce, and maple syrup. Oh, did you just drool on your keyboard? Three out of four of us ordered this, and loved every last bite. And I mean every – yes I ate that entire meal all by myself.
Normally I’m not a brunch type of gal. Because I don’t eat eggs, it kinda rules out quite a few breakfast options, from omelets to pancakes. And I don’t ever feel like spending money on oatmeal or toast at a restaurant when I can make it cheaper and better in my own kitchen. But Veggie Galaxy? That’s brunch I can get used to. They have a huge menu and do have vegetarian options (so you can get real eggs instead of vegan ones if you want) along with an unbelievable looking dessert counter. I had to use all of my will power to resist it. But I will be back…
