Chickpea is just shy of celebrating two years in its brick and mortar space on Main Street.
The food truck-turned eatery has received a ton of praise for its delicious plant-based Mediterranean grub.
Now the team is pulling off the ultimate vegan breakfast, and they are offering it all day, seven days a week.
Just like the rest of the menu, the breakfast at Chickpea Restaurant will be 100% plant-based, and it all kicks off on March 30.
We got a sneak peek of what breakfast lovers can expect from the much-loved local spot’s new menu, available daily from 9 am to close.
This menu is big – you’ll need to come back at least three times to even scratch the surface.
A huge standout has got to be the Latkes Benechick, Chickpea’s take on a vegan Eggs Benedict.
Patrons can choose from avocado, carrot ‘lox,’ and vegan ‘bacon’ as the topping on their crispy potato, zucchini, and dill fritters.
The Bacado Sandwich is a vegan-ized BLT, and it doesn’t disappoint. It’s packed with avocado, tomatoes, vegan ‘bacon,’ mixed greens, and horseradish mayo.
The Shnitzel Waffle Benechick (vegan chicken and waffles) is gluten-free and features dollops of ricotta tofu, vegan hollandaise, Canadian maple syrup, and rosemary.
Folks can opt to add avocado and ‘bacon’ for an extra charge too.
The thick and fluffy waffle was the most challenging item on the menu to perfect, and diners will find a different version of it with The Sweet Waffle topped with bananas and strawberries.
If you have a sweet tooth, the French Toast is a can’t miss. It comes with a side of syrup and a healthy portion of whipped coconut cream. It’s crunchy, soft, and terribly addicting if you ask us.
The two-page menu features other must-try eats such as the tofu scramble (‘lox,’ ‘bacon,’ and vegan sausage varieties), and Blueberry Oat Pancakes, which are gluten-free as well.
In true Chickpea fashion, the plates and stacked high (enough for a takehome container) and most orders come piled with the eatery’s signature salad.
This is just a taste of what you can expect from this spot, so be sure to head here come March 30 and try the new offerings for yourself.
