Brunch at Sage's Cafe is relaxing, filling and completely meat-free

Sage’s Cafe has always been a popular spot for weekend brunch in Salt Lake City, serving delish animal-free fare. But the intimate (read: “crowded”) atmosphere of their original location made it hard to relax. A proper brunch is the kind you eat slumped in a booth, lingering over at least five coffee refills and a few “just one last bites.”

The new location of Sage’s Cafe and the Jade Room offers just such pleasures. The modern, bright interior and comfortable, spacious seating is the ideal backdrop for weekend brunch. The move also inspired some great new dishes, breathing life into the brunch menu. A stand-out dish is the breakfast crepe: a delicate crepe filled with housemade pesto, tofu scramble and hash browns with steamed veggies. Choose from the housemade “sausage,” the sweet and smoky tempeh bacon or sauteed mushrooms to round out your meal.

Another can’t-miss item is the decadent Italian breakfast: squares of baked polenta and potatoes are served alongside tofu scramble and seasonal veggies, topped with a heavenly Alfredo-style sauce with capers and truffle oil.

Of course Sage’s kept the original items from their iconic brunch menu. There would be riots in the street if they took away the melt-in-your-mouth pancakes. Order a smoothie or fresh-squeezed juice to go with your meal, or opt for a traditional (and delightful) mimosa.

Ultimately, Sage’s brunch offers the opportunity to explore a world of scrumptious new tastes. The well-trained staff is very friendly, and can help the unfamiliar navigate the ins and outs of vegan fare, so don’t hesitate to ask questions.

Spare the chickens from laying eggs and the pigs becoming bacon, and give vegan brunch a go; it’s every bit as delicious and satisfying.
