Brunch from The Happy Vegan Baker and the Brixton

The Happy Vegan Baker and the Brixton are teaming up to serve a vegan brunch on October 23. The menu will be biscuits and gravy, breakfast tacos (boracho beans, tofu scramble, and roasted potatoes with a selection of tortillas and salsas), fresh local fruit, and oatmeal with all the fixings. And this is real biscuits and gravy. Buttermilk biscuits or rosemary biscuits and cream gravy. Not¬†mushroom gravy. Not¬†beer gravy. Not tomato gravy. (We take our biscuits and gravy very seriously in Texas.) The price is $12 for two plates of food. [Edit: this was unclear. It’s $12 a person and you can get seconds.]

If the event is a success, it may become a weekly thing. For anyone watching their calendars, this is the same weekend as the Texas State Veggie Fair. You have to make some tough choices. I have tickets to the Austin Film Festival and can’t make it up to DFW for the State Veggie Fair, so that makes it a bit easier for me. But you, boy you have some hard choices to make. Good luck with that.

Here are a few things I’ve bought from the Happy Vegan Baker over the years:
