The second I walked into St. Francis Fountain I was happy solely due to the well designed interior and light rays coming in through the windows. I felt as if I was back to the past and should have slicked back hair, trousers, and a white t-shirt with the sleeves rolled. Unfortunately Southwest Airlines lost my luggage, but that’s besides the point. What’s important is the food right?
I was delighted to eat but once again was wounded by the atrocious construction of a breakfast burrito. I guess that’s what I get for ordering a burrito in The Mission from a hipster cafe. My burrito was tofu and soyrizo wrapped in a tortilla. That’s it. I did get bland beans on the side and if I recall correctly a few potatoes, but honestly where’s the vegetables? The saving grace for this dish was the ranchero sauce which definitely added the only distinguishable flavor on the dish. With this being said I would definitely go back for the cute servers, retro atmosphere and a plethora of vegan options available. Maybe I just had bad luck? Malloreigh will tell you… her sandwich was wonderful.
Yeah, my sandwich was wonderful. I got The Toasted Vegan, which was a delicious toasted tomato and portabello mushroom sandwich with Vegenaise. It was big and tasty and satisfying. It reminded me of my mother’s toasted tomato sandwiches, which was definitely a bonus. I also got a nice side of organic greens, pretty standard. Kaylie forgot to mention that we also got bottomless coffee and some seriously delicious mimosas with our meal, which were another highlight. Her burrito did suck, though.
Moral of the story: vegan breakfast burritos are usually garbage.
