Our search for a real breakfast, beyond the Road Trip Smoothie, took us over to the other side of the river to A.N.D. Cafe. I don't have the whole story yet, but it's pronounced "A.N.D." rather than "And." I think it's more like "A and D," as in two people who started the place, and I can't explain why things like this matter so much to me. I'll ask more questions next time, and there will be a next time. This popular little vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free restaurant is not in our neighborhood, but it's well worth the short drive.
Let's get right to the food! It was hard to choose from their wonderfully creative menu, but we both decided to go outside our usual breakfast-favorite-zones. In fact, both items we chose were brand new on the menu, and a far reach from our usual breakfast burrito and scramble faves. Rick had the Nuevos Rancheros - non-GMO corn tortillas filled with scrambled tofu and vegan cheese, and topped with a zippy but not too spicy green sauce and vegan sour cream. I stole several bites.
