Vegan breakfast options can be tricky, but Karine’s in the Village by the Grange food court offers a brunch menu all day that has many gluten and animal-product-free items, including their specialty: vegan French toast. Heaping home-cooked platters for 8.99 and an entire menu under $10 makes Karine’s offerings delectable and affordable, and for stubborn meat-eaters there are some breakfast dishes with classic bacon and sausage on the side. The ladies behind Karine’s also place a heavy emphasis on running a green kitchen, so you can feel good about the minimal environmental footprint of your eats.
