Breakfast at Cafe Muse Royal Oak, Michigan

Tuesday, September 30, 2014 , , 5 Comments

I was very excited when I found out that Cafe Muse had vegan options since it is supposed to be one of the best places to have breakfast / brunch in Metro Detroit. I went with some non-vegan family since this is a restaurant that caters to herbivores and omnivores alike.

They have a large menu of beverages which pair well with brunch, including a large tea selection to keep the tea drinkers happy. There is always at least one vegan burger, scramble, and several vegan muffins. Any scramble can be made with tofu for a small extra charge.

Blueberry Muffin
All of the muffins at Cafe Muse are vegan. The Blueberry Muffin came out warm and had a fantastic aroma. It was fresh and absolutely delicious. I would go back just for the muffin.

Pepper and Tofu Scramble with Salsa and Mashed Sweet Potato
There is always a vegan scramble option on special and it seems to be creative and seasonal. I got the vegan scramble that was on special at the time. I don't remember the name of it, but it had tri-color bell peppers, jalapenos, and salsa. The tofu did not appear to be marinated and I thought that it was a bit bland by itself. I had to make sure that I had a bite of salsa in every bite I took in order to give it some flavor. This was slightly tricky because they did not give much salsa so I had to ration it out to make it last through every bite. On the plus side, the texture of the tofu was good. I found myself hoping that this wasn't another customer's first introduction to tofu scramble since it was obviously not my favorite. The components were very good and the texture was good. This could have been an excellent scramble if the tofu had had more flavor.

The Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Brown Sugar, Cinnamon & Vanilla were good. I really appreciate the fact that there are vegan options at this restaurant. The muffins alone are worth heading to Cafe Muse to try. Yes, they're that good.


  1. Yeah, the muffin looks really good (awesome that all the muffins are vegan!) ... but that tofu sure looks plain, haha! :)

  2. I like it when breakfast joints can sub tofu in the scrambles... usually, they don't even have tofu.

    1. True, Babette! I am very grateful that they even have tofu there!

  3. Oh YUM! Great blog you have here! Was just visiting other veg blogs and came across yours - glad I did! Swing by my place when you have a moment :)

  4. It’s nice to see these options especially at non-vegan restaurants! The muffin looks better than the tofu scramble though!
