27 Jun Green Sage Cafe – Asheville, NC
We were looking for a vegan breakfast spot in Asheville, but came up short. We found vegan options at Green Sage, so that’s where we went. By late morning when we arrived, the place was still busy with takeout but the dining room was not crowded, so that made it easy for us to find a table by the window. Our cashier, Christina, said she was vegan too and sympathized with our struggle. She made some recommendations and we ended up getting the Buenos Burrito veganized with tofu scramble, the Huckleberry Bowl and a couple of smoothies.
The burrito was very tasty stuffed with tofu, black beans, a little spinach, avocado, and some other veggies. The chia pudding in the huckleberry bowl tasted like coconut water – probably because it’s a coconut milk base. The homemade granola on top was good, but the previously frozen blueberries were just a bit disappointing, but the flavors melded well and the bowl was filling and delicious.
We got the Strawberry Fields and the Almond Brothers smoothies. Strawberry Fields is a typical Strawberry-Banana-Apple Juice smoothie but very well made. Almond brothers is a bit more unusual with Carrots, Bananas and Unsweetened Almond Milk – this was Christina’s recommendation, and it was really delicious. It had the richness of almond butter and picked up the sweetness of the carrots.
