Elderberries Cafe is a hidden gem in Hollywood! While searching for a place to have a nice vegan breakfast, we discovered this saucy, little cafe. It looks like it is right out of the forties and frozen in time with its eclectic furnishings, old books, and colorful flare. We were delighted to have discovered this gluten-free, vegan cafe.
We sat at a table at the front as we perused the menu. All items are available all the time and we had a hankering for breakfast with nachos. Why? Because vacation...that's why. I ordered a Fatburner Lemonade with cayenne and my friend ordered an espresso. I loved my spicy lemonade.
The first dish we received was the Elderberries' Nachos. Organic corn chips were served with raw chili, queso, pico de gallo, and avocado. Delish!
We also had a gluten-free bagel with cashew cheese and jam. This was very interesting. I really liked the cashew cheese though it was nothing like what you'd expect. It was thick and had a different texture than I'm used to -- kind of gave the sweet jam a savory twist.
I also had the Emerson's Frittata, which was zucchini, tomato, quinoa, peas, spinach, Daiya cheese, sprouted tofu, and a touch of corn chowder baked to perfection. The rosemary potatoes on the side were delightful.
Other options include French Toast, salads, wraps, paninis, and desserts. I found this guy outside.
We left stuffed and pleased. The breakfast was a bit pricey with the nachos being $12 and the frittata at $10, but it was all so good and ORGANIC that we couldn't complain. The service was fine -- there were only two people there doing everything, so they did a good job. And the atmosphere was so relaxed and fun, it would be hard not to enjoy that place. And we got to read through the Farside book while enjoying breakfast. Good times.
