Pomegranate Cafe is a vegetarian and vegan cafe serving local, seasonal, and organic produce with a focus on gluten-free elements. All menu items can be made vegan upon request, making Pomegranate Cafe a great option for those with dietary restrictions. Brunch is served daily until 4 pm, and the menu offers hearty, unique choices such as the Ranchera Tostada with scrambled tofu. The restaurant also has an extensive smoothie and juice menu and was voted Best of Phoenix – Vegan Restaurant. The interesting, eclectic decor of the restaurant also offers plenty of seating. I ordered the breakfast burrito, which was huge and filled with a variety of vegetarian goodies, including tofu, sweet potato, cheese, and farm vegetables wrapped in a spinach tortilla. It was delicious, although somewhat pricey – the burrito was about $12 plus tax, but you’re paying for the quality of the ingredients. The food was served quickly by the helpful staff and the atmosphere was fantastic for getting some early morning reading or work done! I highly recommend it.
