A new vegan breakfast pop-up has begun routine operations inside Red Hat Coffee in the East Village. Spoiled Vegans Cafe serves meatless breakfast dishes ranging from acai bowls topped with fruit to waffle dogs made with gluten-free flour and vegan sausages. Other signature items include waffle stacks with sweet or savory stuffings as well as egg muffins and omelettes made with the mung bean-based JUST Egg substitute.
Originally a one-time pop-up, the breakfast cafe was so popular Red Hat Coffee’s management approached Spoiled Vegans co-proprietor Todd Anderson to reach an agreement to open every weekend. Future plans include installing a permanent kitchen and offering a lunch menu.
“There is a lack of vegan options in the East Village, especially vegan breakfast spots, so we wanted to bring something new and inclusive to the neighborhood,” said Anderson, who is a neighborhood resident. “What we have is a very traditional vegan breakfast plates that any non vegans can fully enjoy as well.”
Spoiled Vegans Cafe operates from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Other itinerant pop-ups at local markets and vegan community events are announced on their Instagram profile, @spoiledvegans.
