Occasionally the Hubz and I like to have an early morning breakfast date during the week; yesterday just happened to be one of those days. Lately our favorite spot has been Penny Cluse Cafe in Burlington because of it’s early hours, delicious coffee and tasty tofu scramble. Yesterday morning we stopped in and had settled on the Pesto Tofu Scramble, a griddled tomato and dry rye toast, oh and of course coffee. Well come to find out the pesto which we had asked about on our last visit and were told was vegan actually is not vegan. So we decided on the peanut-ginger sauce instead. The waitress feeling bad about our last waitress misinforming us brought us each over a complimentary glass of tangerine juice.
The Peanut-Ginger Tofu is really delicious. The sauce coats the tofu perfectly and you get great flavor with every bite. Also the ginger is really a mild flavor and balanced perfectly with the peanut. “I really like how the sauce is kind of crispy too and the ginger, well you can tell it’s real ginger not just a flavor” – Quote by The Hubz
The Griddled Tomato is my new favorite breakfast item. Cooking the tomato locks in all the juices and just creates a whole new depth of flavor; place it on top of the rye toast and you’ve got a winner.
As for the beverages I would say they have one of the best cups of coffee in town. The water was refreshing. The tangerine juice was surprisingly not overly sweet and I really enjoyed it- I may even order it next visit!
Just a heads up to vegans interested in eating here the homefries are not vegan.
Vegan Friendly: 3/5- all though not a ton of vegan options the ones they do have are delicious.
