A (new to me) Vegetarian Greasy Spoon
I met a friend at Body Blitz yesterday and took this time to finally go to Sadie's Diner, a completely vegetarian greasy spoon in downtown Toronto. Don't ask me why i haven't been yet, especially because i used to work LITERALLY right around the corner. But i'm so glad i finally went.
There are quite a few vegan options, like a vegan BLT, a club, pancakes, burritos, and some great juices and smoothies. I had the club, which came with big slices of grilled tofu and 'veggie pealmeal bacon.' It was delicious and got just the spot in my tummy that was missing for so long. I couldn't believe how excited i was to find a cheap ($17 for two!) and totally veg greasy spoon. I saw 'greasy spoon' with love, because it also reflects the homage to 50's diner and comfort food, whereas so many veggie restos here are either Asian fare or 'gourmet' vegan. All of which i love, of course. The fun and kitschy decor helps too, especially the awesome collection of vintage salt and pepper shakers!
