Another Trip to Golden Mean Cafe

Thinking of all the veg*n restaurants in LA, I would say that Golden Mean Cafe in Santa Monica is one of my favorites.  I love the variety of menu items (and the daily selection of desserts!).

My vegan guy and I went during their weekend brunch.  I took advantage of their brunch menu and my vegan guy took advantage of one of their daily specials.

My breakfast burrito ($10.95) included tofu scramble, veggie sausage, soy-free cheese, pico de gallo and was served with a side of potatoes.  This burrito was huge and delicious.  The side of potatoes were well seasoned and also delicious.  I love breakfast burritos and will be getting this one again.

My vegan guy got the Tempeh Reuben ($11.95) which included tempeh, sauerkraut, soy-free cheese, and their special dressing.  It came with your choice of side – kelp noodle salad in this case.  This reuben was so good!  It was one of the best reubens I think I’ve had.  It was so juicy and the sauce was wonderful.  I hope they turn this special into a regular menu item.

I really wanted to get one of their many desserts, but was pretty full from the breakfast burrito.  I ended up getting one of their new offerings: raw truffles.  Yep, they now offer a variety of raw truffles in exotic flavors. I had them pick a flavor for me (I’m still not sure which one it was).  This thing was super creamy, but (as you’ll see is common in my posts) the raw chocolate was a little too bitter for me.  For those who like that very dark chocolate flavor, these will be heavenly.
