First Impressions: Breaking Bread Cafe

breaking bread veggie tacosBreaking Bread Cafe and Catering opened April 30, but I only learned about it today on The Herbivorous Butcher’s Facebook page. Why? Because HB’s Maple Sage and Spicy All American Sausage are on the menu! The two slices I received (pictured above) cost $3 and the tacos were $7. I haven’t 100% decided if I feel like it was all worth $10, but overall I had a very positive experience.

The style they’re going for looks to be Southern comfort food but you can check out the current menu below and decided for yourself. There’s ton of street parking nearby and some is limited to an hour so watch the signs, but I was in an out in half an hour.

Order at the counter, then they give you a number and bring your food out to you. For now, they’re open Monday through Friday from 7am-3pm. Breakfast is all day; lunch runs from 11am-3pm.

The staff is all incredibly friendly and though the woman at the register didn’t know about vegan-friendly items, I knew the tacos were a safe bet since HB had posted about them.

The food came out so quickly! I didn’t take a close look behind the counter, but some of it might be pre-cooked. The Tofu Veggie Breakfast Tacos come with tofu, spices, bell peppers and black beans. The menu also says it has cilantro, salsa, avocodo, hot sauce and scallions but of those, only the avocado was apparent. At the time, I only remembered something about hot sauce, so I asked a staff member passing by and she brought me two choices. Sriracha to the rescue!

I selected the Spicy All American Sausage because the Maple Sage is too sweet for me. Chris really likes it, though. As I think back, I probably could have cut it up and added it to the tacos, but I ate it on its own. And it was delicious. The All American is one of my favorite HB products.

I’ve purchased it before, and Brother Butcher Kale once promised eagles would fly out when I opened a package.

I’m still waiting.

Regardless, it’s exciting to see something from HB at a restaurant. Sister Butcher Aubry told me the next run of Breaking Bread’s menu will note veg items which will be incredibly helpful. She said the Collard Greens and Breakfast Potatoes are for sure vegan, and she clued me in on the patio which I didn’t notice initially.

Check out the articles from CBS Minnesota and the Star Tribune for more details on the purpose of Breaking Bread which has a great cause behind it. I can’t wait to go back and try more!
