Josies: UWS NYC

Vegan Denver Scramble ($12.75)
Organic Oatmeal ($8.75)

Today we brunched before church on the Upper West not to far from home. Josies on Amsterdam Ave. This place serves organic food with a few vegan options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner…The setting inside is large for a restaurant in Manhattan, a nice calming environment. They start of coming around giving out Spelt bread with cinnamon which was pretty delicious they give you an applesauce as a topping, a good starter. Got a herbal tea to to sip on BUT these not so big glasses of tea will set you back $5 and no refills, so keep that in mind when ordering.  We ordered two things, one being the Vegan Denver Style Scramble($12.75)– organic scrambled tofu sauteed with bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms, vegan breakfast sausage, and a toasted whole grain english muffin with strawberry spread. This was a pretty delicious light brunch. Came out sizzling hot.. I loved the vegan sausage and muffin with the spread. We also ordered the Organic Oatmeal– sweetened with maple syrup and topped with sliced bananas, blueberries, dried cranberries, and toasted almonds($8.75) This bowl of oatmeal was everything you would want a bowl of oatmeal to be. Sweet, gooey and delicious, with a bit of crunch from the almonds. I would love to say that everything about this place was fantastic.. BUT the experience with our server today wasn’t  the best. A bit of an attitude honestly which is fine because Im there for the food, that being said the food I ordered ( the scramble) I ordered with out mushrooms and it came smothered in mushrooms when I had them take it back to return it took longer to make then the original time it was ordered.. which was quite irritating. Then we were offered “some more tea, seeing that I had to wait for my order” ( which to me sounds like a refill because we had to wait) Little did we know until the check arrived we had been charged an extra $5 for another tea. So the food was delicious just know what your getting into when you go for lunch/brunch/dinner. Alrighty Eat good peeps:)

Strawberry Spread

Peace, Love, and Vegan Food,
