124: Breakfast Republic

124: Breakfast Republic

What happens when a vegan has the Owner and the Corporate Executive Chef of an egg-dominant restaurant on her show? It's not what you think, guys; Breakfast Republic is doing big things here in San Diego! Not only have they added a few vegan items to the menu (they're friggin' amazing; I've had them!), but they even removed a lot of the animal products from their non-vegan items (by replacing the butter with oil, etc), to create less of a chance of contamination.

Let's give a big round of applause for (in my opinion) one of the most vegan-conscious, but otherwise non-vegan breakfast joints for taking the extra step to create an environment for vegans to feel safe to eat in!
