Vita Cafe – Portland, OR

Vita cafe

Portland, or

Vegan and vegetarian  restaurant

I can’t go vegan, you say. I love cheese and eggs, you say.

At vita cafe, you can eat vegetarian and still have those eggs and cheese. OR you can have a tofu scramble with vegan cheese and never know the difference

The atmosphere is rummage chic, dark lighting, mis-matched furniture, cool paintings on the walls. Big windows looking at a theatre and the bright colors of the Thai restaurant across the street. Great juice selections and delicious food.


OK, holy freaking crap. I’ve never had a better vegan breakfast than this. In fact I can’t think of any breakfast that was better than this. It really felt like I was cheating with the faux chorizo and chili mixed with corn tortillas and tofu. Adding the local hot sauce “Secret Aardvark” really gave it a killer kick. I would choose this over any other place right now. It’s really cool that there are so many vegan breakfast options out here, something I’ve missed for almost a year.


I had the Denver scramble with potatoes and toast. Tofu, almond cheese, red peppers, spinach, onions,  and tempeh.  Amazing. If you would blindfold someone and make them eat this, they would think they were eating a normal Denver scramble, never missing the meat, cheese, or eggs. It was delicious and I won’t feel crappy later from eating dairy! Freeze jump win!
