Vegan Brunch at The Zenith

I've been wanting to go The Zenith Vegetarian Cafe in the South Side for their famous vegan Sunday brunch forever. Today I went for the first time with Nichelle, who I met at the Happy Herbivore book signing a few weeks ago.

It was everything it was hyped up to be. We each got the Almond French Toast with Blueberry Sauce for an entree. It tasted as good as it sounds--amazing! There was some Mediterranean orzo side that came with it that was also really good.

There were a ton of other brunch items served on a buffet: mixed greens salad, fruit salad, a black bean salad, potato salad, macaroni salad, some chickpea dish that was really good and, my favorite, peanut noodles.There was a whole other table of just cakes in flavors like chocolate coconut, rum raisin, and ginger pineapple. I got chocolate chocolate chip (amazing) and peanut butter with dark berry icing. The peanut butter wasn't too peanut buttery, but other than that they were fantastic. I think anyone, not just vegans, would love this place--there's a big variety, and everything's really good. Can't wait to go back.


  1. Yum... I will definitely be returning, so let me know when you want to go again!

  2. I've been wanting to try Zenith forever! It's walking distance from where I live and I've heard such raves about it.

  3. i've heard nothing good about it until today. Now i want to go there! LOL :)
