Don’t worry; I have not crossed over the vegan bridge. If you have chosen to adhere to the vegan lifestyle, more power to you I could not do that for the love of bacon, and steak, and turkey. However, on this day of our trip we had a lot packed into the day and I needed sustenance. So off to my apps I went. After some digging we decided to try Revolucion Coffee & Juice.
Located in the small shopping center at 7959 Broadway, Ste. 507 (though when we got to that slot they were actually to the left and in the corner though I did not catch the new suite number). They offered almond milk as a substitute for milk (as well as soy if you are so inclined), but they even have cashew milk for their vegan bowls.
I walked into clean and pristine white coffee house (not something I’m used to seeing). I waited for the crowd to thin out, so I could talk with the lady at the counter and not feel rushed or that I was keeping someone from their much-needed coffee fix.
I found out I could have their peanut butter and jelly bowl with cashew milk made in house. Oh my! It was wonderful. Add into it the Revolucion Latte, a lavender infused honey with espresso and almond milk complete with coffee art, and my breakfast was as satisfying as it was beautiful.
The coffee was good, I wasn’t wowed by the flavor of the coffee, however, I have definitely had worse cups of coffee.
The bowl was very filling, I couldn’t even finish it all. But it stuck with me for the rest of the day, and I didn’t have a night of eating because of all the exercise I’d gotten…a huge deal for me.
It was worth every meatless bite. The fruit was fresh, ripe, and flavorful, while the granola held up for the duration of the bowl. My last bite had just as much crunch as the first. Though the PB seemed a little over powering at first, and I was hoping for more Acai flavor since the color was definitely there, still it was a wonderful breakfast.
Hubby deemed the food “too hippy” (a word my family have assigned to food I can eat) for him. So we left there and went and got him breakfast tacos from a local place. He checked – I couldn’t eat there but he at least got some sustenance for the day.
