Pomegranate Cafe is a top destination for organic, locally-sourced vegan food. All menu items are made from scratch using only the freshest ingredients. Because the Pomegranate Cafe values the critical relationship it shares with the earth, it donates a percentage of its profits to animal-based charities.
Lunch and dinner is served every day. Brunch is also served every day until 2 PM and all-day Sunday. Not sure what to get? If you stop by for brunch, we recommend trying the Wild Western Tacos or the Lumberjack Biscuits & Gravy. The Wild Western Tacos features two tortillas with either farm eggs or tofu, potatoes, farm veggies, and kale. The Lumberjack Biscuits & Gravy offer two “buttermilk” biscuits drenched in country gravy.
“Been here a couple of times now and have tried quite a few items on the menu thanks to happy hour. Everything is fresh and delicious. Their nachos hands down are my absolute favorite. Who knew vegan cheese could taste so much like the real deal?” - Yelp Review
