I’ve been waiting to return to Amazing Cafe for 10 months! Ever since my last brunch visit to Amazing Cafe (which, if you were anticipating Tulum Tacos, the Blue Zone Smoothie and a brownie from Gluten-Free Goat Bakery, please click this upcoming link: first brunch post on Amazing Cafe), I am been anticipating the opportunity to brunch at this local establishment once again. Thanks to Susie Popovich‘s Pop-up Rocket Yoga class (which was INCREDIBLE) in the South Side, my brunch dreams came true.
As you can tell, I started off my brunch with a vegan Mocha. I must admit, there was an adjustment period to enjoying this Mocha, due to all of the regular sweeter Mocha’s I’ve had in my life. Once I got past that moment, I really appreciated this healthier version of a mocha!
Couldn’t resist another snap of this beautiful Mocha! 😉
The whole reason why I convinced my yoga buddies to go to brunch with me: The Smile! This is a vegan French toast with maple cashew cream and seasonal fruit. Ever since Amazing Cafe opened, customers have been RAVING about this dish!
Once again, I did have to get over the fact that there was neither any butter, regular milk nor maple syrup involved in the making of this French toast. Once I did, I enjoyed the lightness of the toast, the creaminess of the maple cashew cream (it tasted so good; you would never know it was vegan unless someone already told you lol), the crunchiness of the granola, and the sweetness of the fruit. So worth the wait (and the presentation of this dish was BREATH TAKING)!

I floated out of the cafe on a cloud of happiness (well, you know, in my imagination).
Well there you have it, foodies! Whether you live in either the South Side or the North Hills, Amazing Cafe is certainly worth the trip!
