Vegans who like to wake up early and have a place to grab brunch can rejoice. Oddfellows, located in the hip Bishop Arts district, has a few menu items on their breakfast/brunch menu that are already vegan; Eggless Scramble and the Spudnik Loaded Potato vegan style with vegan butter, sour cream, and mushrooms. After perusing the menu and asking a few questions, we found out that the Migas and Huevo Rancheros can be veganized subbing tofu for eggs.
We went with the scramble, which was rather small but tasty with spinach, Portobello mushrooms, and peppers. The Huevo Rancheros was the favorite; sour supreme smothered between 2 corn tortillas and lightly fried, topped with fried tofu and not-too-spicy ranchero sauce. Why they fried the tofu instead of putting tofu scramble on top I’m not sure. Next time I would ask for tofu scramble. The breakfast potatoes were perfectly done with a hint of fresh rosemary and salt.
Oddfellows is known for their coffee, boasting a $15k espresso machine, and special hand brew method which is fun to watch (the barista declined having his photo taken). Soy milk is available for all drinks. They make a delicious chai latte as well.
It does get busy on weekends so be prepared to wait. We went to dinner here and did not find as many options, but the staff was very helpful in trying to accommodate us. They mentioned they had more choices for vegans but since they weren’t selling they took them off the menu. Let’s show them some love for brunch so those of us who want to eat breakfast food during the week and weekends before 11am have a nice place to chow.
