A vegetarian's delight! I could seriously eat here at Veggie Galaxy every week, and I am guessing so could many others, given the long queue at 9am on a Sunday morning.
American diner-style booths make the dining experience private for adults and fun for kids. The staff happily provide colouring sheets and colour pencils, that will keep any child entertained while the parents sit back and sip away on mimosas… and that is exactly what we did.
The mimosas are heavenly, a refreshing too easy to drink champagne based beverage with a subtle strawberry flavour from the added fresh juice. This is a perfect start to Sunday brunch, and trust me, you will not be able to stop at just one.
The menu choices were all too tempting – from loaded omelettes, tofu scrambled eggs, and gluten-free pancakes to Eggs Benedict, French toast and build your own breakfasts; I wanted to try everything! There is even an all-vegan dessert menu with a variety of cheesecakes, frappes, floats, sundaes and more…and yes, they are all vegan!
I gave in to the Avocado Benedict to balance the flowing strawberry mimosas, and it was the right choice. The eggs perfectly poached so that a goey yolk oozes out soaking into the avocado topped gluten-free bread. The raw cherry tomatoes and a sprinkling of parsley added complimentary and fresh flavours to the dish, and the side of home fries (baked cubes of potatoes crisp on the outside and soft on the inside) a comfort on a frosty May morning.
This is a perfectly lazy and relaxing Sunday brunch, and one that will fill you up until dinner. Though it may have been because of the American portion size – large everything!
Veggie Galaxy is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, seven days a week from 9am. Whether you are a vegan, vegetarian, or omnivore, you will love the full-flavoured, balanced dishes. This will be the first stop on my next trip to Boston!
