Update: As of Spring 2010 Flavourspot has opened a new, late night cart downtown on SW 3rd and Ash.

And, if you didn’t know already – they have two locations – check them out on Mississippi.

Q: What can sell out a little coffee cart on N. Lombard?
A: Food Fight posting “VEGAN WAFFLES” on their website.

We went on a Saturday and they were almost out of vegan waffle mix. I let them know to increase their stock because I was moving a few blocks away and I loooove waffles. The wait was longer than expected, about 10-15 minutes, but worth every moment. Two veggie sausages were tucked into a beautifully browned waffle blanket. The secret to this yummy brunch was the maple/margarine spread. All wrapped in foil so it doesn’t leak onto you. I salivate just thinking about this wonderful creation and it was only $4.50. There were many other waffle options, some vegan, some not – just check out their website.

Since I am not a coffee person I cannot speak to the coffee, but my brunch companion was quite impressed with the amount of creme in her Americano. She said it shows a great barista. I just thought it looked pretty so I took a photo. No extra charge for soy milk in their fancy drinks.

If you don’t live in the area, you should still take a trip there at least once a month, if you’re a waffle lover. Since it’s outside and they have a picnic table, you can take “jr.” (as they called the flour legged furry friend with us) but they don’t have vegan non-human cookies. This will be my new regular hang out.

  1. Do you happen to know what kind of vegan sausage they use? I haven’t seen it mentioned anywhere. I’m just curious.

  2. Thank you for alerting me to this place. I missed the memo on Food Fight’s blog. I keep staring at the marshmallowy photo and drooling. It should be marked NSFW.

  4. Any experiences with the Flavourspot on Fremont and Mississippi?

    I might not be reading the menu thoroughly enough, but it doesn’t seem to have all of these options. I’ve been about three weekends in a row now, and am quickly become dissatisfied.

    I think the trick, for me at least, is to think of it as more of a snack than a meal. The vegan sausage (has anyone found out which brand they use?) is tasty, although at $5.oo, ($4.50 usually, 50 cents to veganize it, bleh), is not very substantial. Even two waffles is not quite a full meal, as far as I am concerned.

    I am also finding the waffles to be too dry, and not fluffy enough. Furthermore, they don’t have Earth Balance (or any other buttery thing), and offered only canola spray as a butter substitute on the butter and powdered sugar. It was still tasty, but would have benefited greatly from a more buttery flavor/texture.

    Aside from these glaring shortcomings, Flavourspot has a tasty product that won’t totally break the bank. It just can’t, at this point, replace a more standard breakfast. But for those few hours between breakfast and lunch it might be just the thing that hits the “spot”.

  9. Everything I’ve seen online (reviews, their freakin’ menu, etc) leads me to believe that they use gelatin-free mallow fluff, but when I stopped by last week the staff told me it wasn’t vegan. Have you guys heard anything recently to suggest they made a switch? I think I was too confounded to be a good sleuth at the time.
