Complete Awesomeness: Tofu Scramble Hash ($13) with organic tofu, scrambled with asparagus, mushrooms, spinach, miso, nutritional yeast and veggie tempeh bacon (we added vegan cheddar cheese). Sides we chose: Olive bread toast and breakfast potatoes.
This is the BEST breakfast in town and it’s served all day. This reminds me of NYC’s amazing breakfast spots.
Should be Awesome but Not: Red Velvet Cupcake ($4)
I’m super easy to please in the sugar department. If it’s sweet, I usually love it no matter what. Mani’s is the exception; their desserts need some serious love. This cupcake was sooooooooooo dry and the icing was hard and stale and when it finally broke down in mouth, it tasted like pure, salty-ish cream cheese (but clumpier). I’ve had very bad luck with desserts at Mani’s. They all look beautiful but I’ve yet to try one that’s actually good. I still order a different dessert every time I go, hoping there’s at least one gem in their lovely bakery display case.
