in restaurant, vegan, vegetarian

I had a Living Social Deal for 50% off $30 worth of food from Cafe Muse and decided to cash it in on Tuesday.

I’ve been to this vegetarian-friendly coffeehouse in Hollywood before, but never during the evening, when they have live entertainment.

Maybe one day I’ll come for open mic and play at that piano….

…but for now I’ll just eat there. We ordered breakfast AND lunch, since it was eleven o’ clock and brunch time!

A make-your-own breakfast burrito with cheddar, eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes, and onions – came with sweet potato hash browns

And a vegan reuben – veggie turkey, Daiya cheese, thousand island dressing, and sauerkraut. I ordered sweet potato fries as the side.

Evenly split

BBQ sauce and ketchup for dipping

Plus hot sauce for the burrito…

…which was just okay – the cheddar wasn’t fully melted and the tortilla was burnt.

The Reuben was better, but not as mind-blowing as the one at Locali or Meet Market <—-which is closing :(

The hash browns needed seasoning and I could’ve used more crispness – but the sweet potato fries were perfect!

Overall, we found the food to be good but not great. Cafe Muse is a cute place to hang, though (free wifi too!) and has A LOT of sandwich options so I’ll be back for more BVSLA list research.

To fulfill the $30 Deal, Jennifer (the owner) let us order one to go. We got the “Chicken” Salad…

…and seven hours later, wound up splitting it for dinner.

I supplemented the side salad with baby spinach; the dressing was really yummy!

In fact, Abe and I both liked this sandwich the best.

For dessert, 3 big scoops of Pineapple Coconut

This flavor really can’t hold a candle to the other Coconut Bliss ones I sampled at the beach house over the weekend.

My entire day was pretty crazy with packing and tying up loose ends before heading to NJ, so I was grateful for Cafe Muse and the Living Social Deal to take care of my meals. Next time you hear from me I’ll be on the east coast – in 90 degree weather!!!
