Phoenix New Times' Description

Even though everything on the menu is vegan, mother-daughter chef duo Marlene and Cassie Tolman don’t advertise their cheery all-day breakfast and lunch eatery in Ahwatukee as a vegan restaurant — nor should they. The emphasis here is nourishing, flavor-packed food and drinks using fresh ingredients; from colorful, vibrant dishes (think sandwiches, salads, and bowls) made with a harmony of fresh vegetables and grains, to fruit-packed smoothies and veggie juices, to a bakery case stocked with homemade pastries. Make sure to check the specials board for the day’s tasty home made soup, quesadilla, or featured veggie burger creation like the highly satisfying mushroom, black bean, and sundried tomato with a creamy basil spread. For dessert, don’t miss one of Marlene Tolman’s delectable vegan pastries.

    Very lucky to live only only a mile or so from Pomegranate Cafe, Outstanding food...friendly service...yummm! The Lumberjack makes a fabulous breakfast, and the BLT (yes with tempeh bacon) is outstanding. Don't forget their selection of desserts...vegan? Yes. Delicious? Yes!

    This is vegetarian, vegan and raw food done right. Try the Lumberjack sandwich or the raw buckwheat crispies parfait capped in fruit, berries and cashew cream. Named a 2010 Best New Restaurants.

    Everything I've ever had here is AMAZING!!! My favorite is the Pesto Presto Sandwich though... :)

  • Phoenix New Times on 09/24/13

    Using banana nut bread as the foundation and topping it with candied walnuts, whipped cream, pure maple, and even more bananas, Pomegranate Café delivers a fresh take on French toast, literally.

    Try the breakfast scramble tacos w/ tofu or egg! Phenominal!
