Pomegranate Cafe

Even though everything on the menu is vegan, mother-daughter chef duo Marlene and Cassie Tolman don't advertise their cheery all-day breakfast and lunch eatery in Ahwatukee as a vegan restaurant — nor should they. The emphasis here is nourishing, flavor-packed food and drinks using fresh ingredients -- from colorful, vibrant dishes (think sandwiches, salads, and bowls) made with a harmony of fresh vegetables and grains, to fruit-packed smoothies and veggie juices, to a bakery case stocked with homemade pastries. Make sure to check the specials board for the day’s tasty homemade soup, quesadilla, or featured veggie burger creation like the highly satisfying mushroom, black bean, and sundried tomato with a creamy basil spread. For dessert, don't miss one of Marlene Tolman's delectable vegan pastries. Read our review.
