Suncafe Organic is a terrific vegan restaurant on Ventura Boulevard in Studio City, with a menu that offers both familiarity and intriguing twists and turns. If you’re there for brunch, the Sun Florentine is an excellent choice, with tempeh bacon, spinach, tomatoes and hollandaise sauce atop whole-wheat bread. There’s also The Omelet, made with veggie-stuffed tofu “eggs” topped with avocado, cashew cheese and chives. The Buckwheat & Cornmeal Pancakes and cinnamon-apple French Toast are enticing options as well.
For lunch and dinner, start off with the Lettuce Leaf Tacos, BBQ Cauliflower, a heaping portion of Super Sun Nachos, or a Legendary Kale Colossus salad — then launch into an entree. They have a Tempeh Burger as well as a Raw Fiesta Burger, the latter featuring a raw patty made from Brazil nuts, sunflower seeds and sun-dried tomato. Quinoa pasta and cashew cheese are key to their Mac & Cheese, which can be ordered with optional tempeh bacon or SunChorizo. The Orange Kissed Lo Mein is sautéed in sesame tamari and served with orange-glazed cauliflower.
Margherita and Perfecto Pesto pizzas are on the menu as well, along with desserts like Cookie Dough Cheesecake and Key Lime Pie, and shakes like Sweet Kale and Coffee Date. A vegan feast awaits at SunCafe Organic!
Suncafe is located 10820 Ventura Boulevard in Studio City.
