I realized at brunch the other day that I haven’t posted about Gaia’s on this blog. Crazy! It’s my absolute favorite place to go for a late breakfast. It’s always packed weekend mornings, but it’s worth the wait.
Tip: Always go to the counter and put your name on the list. They aren’t always obvious about the fact that they’re taking names.
See the wonderful pots of coffee just waiting for you? It’s one of my favorite parts about the restaurant. You can just go up and refill your own cup any time you want. Granted, the Swiss Mocha Almond is usually in need of refilling, but it tastes good and you don’t have to worry about waitstaff coming around and ruining your perfect temperature coffee.
They focus on vegetarian, whole food products. Like the juices listed above. It was kind of funny when we took my mother-in-law and sister-in-law here once; they couldn’t figure out why a restaurant wouldn’t carry Diet Coke. Or Splenda.
We normally get the Cuban Eggs.
The atmosphere is quite eclectic, as one might expect in Eastown. You can watch the cooks make breakfast as you wait in line. You’ll also want to grab one of their famous vegan cookies for the road on your way out.
