Eating out vegan… Mother’s Cafe and Garden – Austin, Texas

You’ve heard the phrase, “Brother from another Mother”, right?

Mother’s is a “Restaurant from another Mother”.

Disguised as a quaint, local, run-of-the-mill eatery; Mother’s is definitely from another planet. The planet is made up of people who only shop local, source their ingredients from their own backyard or local farmer, only eat veggies and never where watches. This place exists in its own time space continuum… and that’s why I love it!

Check out my review of Mother’s Cafe and Garden on

What to order: The vegan pancake of the day and coffee.

What NOT to order: Any of their mexican dishes. I don’t know why they don’t work…they just don’t.

If you are feeling frisky, get a desert. You won’t be disappointed.

Note: This in no way takes into consideration the quality of the food of any of these restaurants. As a guy’s guy and former meat-eater turned vegan, it is just hard to take these places serious based on the name alone. I can tell you from eating at all of these fine establishments, their food is no joking matter–it is all very delicious and healthy!
