Paradox Palace Cafe Restaurant Review

: Paradox Palace’s menu is largely vegan and vegetarian, and the kitchen will "veganize" almost anything. But carnivores will find good things to eat, too. Breakfast is served all day and choices include a wide array of scrambles (egg and tofu), Mexican-influenced dishes such as breakfast burritos, corn cakes with apples and toasted walnuts, and biscuits topped with almond gravy. Lunchtime may find a twosome sharing a thick burger made with grass-fed, locally-produced beef, or a Phake Philly built with tempeh strips instead of steak (gluten-free buns are available). The BLT is made with coconut "bacon" and there’s a barbecued tempeh salad. Portions are generous. Service isn’t as brisk as the coffee, so come ready to relax. In keeping with the healthful mood, there's no alcohol served.
