The hardest part of eating vegetarian is explaining to the family that the flamingo tongues at the Saturnalia banquet still count as meat. Today’s Groupon serves up healthy vegan and vegetarian fare for eaters of all persuasions: for $9, you get $20 worth of vegetarian-friendly comfort fare and coffee at Cafe MUSE on Theater Row in Hollywood.
Cafe MUSE entertains minds and bellies in a creatively charged venue fusing the mind-stoking powers of comfort cuisine, caffeine-saddled beverages, and local artists' exhibitions. The culinary Qs in the kitchen outfit the menu with savory, flavory dishes that please diners of all diets. Leaf eaters can design their own salad, utilizing a foundation of organic mixed greens or romaine and optional accouterments including artichokes, sprouts, hummus, avocado, and corn ($8.95). Traditionally meaty meals are replaced by non-carnivorous doppelgangers such as the veggie burger's juicy vegan soy- or dairy-enhanced garden patties ($8.95) and the Philly cheesesteak, its slab of veggie protein topped with a choice of vegan cheese and mayo ($9.95). Everyone can enjoy favorites such as pizza, quesadillas and nachos. Early risers can nosh breakfast fare until noon on weekdays and until 2 p.m. on weekends; try the tofu scramble, spiced up with soy chorizo, fresh vegetabes, and baked tortillas ($8.50), or nosh the plain ($7.95) or fruit-stuffed ($8.50) whole-wheat pancakes made with milk culled from the fruitful udders of soybeans.
Blazing sunbeams focused through large windows illuminate lounging patrons as they enjoy free WiFi access or savor smooth chai lattes in hot ($3) and iced ($3.50) forms or sip bottomless but structurally sound cups of coffee ($2.50). Cafe MUSE welcomes local performers to share the results of their musing for free, though the restaurant does request a minimum $5 food or drink order to help stop roaring stomachs from interrupting performances.
- A perfect place to go for a lazy Sunday brunch, esp [sic] if you are vegetarian or vegan. Their menu is huge with a wide array of omelet/scramble type stuff for breakfast, and wraps, salads, and sandwiches for lunch. – Erica F., Yelp
