Review // The Coronado

I have now tried almost every vegan item on their menu. Everything has been delicious and their house-made sauces are to die for!

Their breakfast sandwich and Farmyard Tofu Scramble dishes are great breakfast choices. I like the Biscuits & Gravy, but if you aren’t a mushroom fan you may want to avoid because their mushroom gravy contains hella mushrooms.

For lunch, the Potato Tacos, Cauliflower Tacos, and Fried Guacamole are my absolute favorites. So much incredible flavor in all the above, and have I mentioned the sauces??!! (Vegan hack: Omit cheese from the Potato Tacos.)

The Red Bean Quesadilla is delicious, and if you’re like me and don’t like cheese (even vegan cheese) rest easy, as this quesadilla is queso-free. Yay!

The Red Potato and Garbanzo Bean Burger is very tasty, but vegans must remember that this place is vegetarian, not vegan, and they will NOT ask you/warn you about non-vegan items. The bread for this burger is not vegan, but there is a vegan alternative. Vegans must remember to ask for vegan when ordering, just to be safe.

Last, but not least, the desserts are now ALL vegan, and they are AMAZING! So many delicious concoctions, and all so buttery, sweet and dreamy!  No more drooling in sorrow at yummy-looking non-vegan cakes sitting next to the 1 or 2 vegan options of the day.  I hadn’t had Thumbprints in nearly a decade. Their baker makes an unbelievably rich & buttery vegan Thumbprint cookie, filled with various fruit centers.   Muffins, cookies, brownies, scones, pinwheels, pop tarts, and sometimes we’re blessed with whole cakes, which always sell out within hours.

It’s a great hang out spot too.  Lots of board games to enjoy before or after your meal.  They host special events, like Simpson Trivia nights, too.  This is easily one of my favorite vegan spots for both dine-in and carry out.  They often have Groupon deals.

Opens early, closes late.
