vegetarian menu escondido + paninis

We’re excited to meet the needs of the growing population of those who eat exclusively plant based foods. Happily our delicious sourdough bread from Bread & Cie is vegan, so we’ve got a good foundation there. Here are some of our favorite plant-based menu options…

  • Vegan Panini — This toasted sandwich starts with a light brush of olive oil, Italian herbs and lots of avocado on sourdough bread from Bread & Cie. Then we add shredded carrots, sun-dried tomatoes, sliced red onion, microgreens and fresh baby spinach. Simply delicious and 100 percent plant based.
  • Avocado Toast — Without the frills, just a scoop of smashed fresh avo and some fresh fruit with our yummy toasted sourdough bread. Ask for sliced tomatoes, if you’d like them.
  • Soups — At least once a week we prepare a plant-based soup. Some of the most popular are:
    • Chipotle Black Bean
    • Spicy Lentil
    • Mushroom Barley and Curried Butternut Squash
