Are you looking for a good Brunch spot? Well you should hit up Even Stevens! They have 8 Utah locations and a few around Idaho, Arizona, and Texas. I have tried 4 of the Utah locations and the Ogden layout is my personal favorite.
This restaurant is not entirely Vegan but they do have dedicated Vegan options on there menu.
Not only do they have amazingly delicious food, but the cause behind the whole restaurant is very heartwarming. Heres how it works...
1. You buy a sandwich/entree off there menu
2. At the end of every month, each store tally's the sandwich sales. The funds for all the sandwich making ingredients like bread, meat, cheese and produce -are then placed into a Sysco food account.
3. Each store has different non-profit charity's they work with. And those partners can access the account and order sandwich-making ingredients as they need. A few days later, a truck delivers the order to that charity's doorstep. Free of charge.
4. The non-profit staff and volunteers make the meals or stock their pantry shelves. Those individuals in need are then fed with yummy meals and the non-profit partners can put their money where their passion is. Its a win win for all parties contributing!
Just knowing you are helping an amazing cause by just buying yourself a delicious meal, increases your love for this establishment.
When we arrived we parked in the back parking lot. You walk through there cute outside patio through the back door of the restaurant. You need to walk through the entire restaurant up to the front to place your order.
You may also park on the main road and walk through the front door. But finding a parking spot on Washington Blvd can be hard sometimes.
The atmosphere is very bright and energetic, from there wall paintings, artwork, and live musicians playing while you eat.
We both ordered drinks. I got the Very Berry Mimosa, and Sean ordered an EPIC Brewery beer.
I ordered the Jackfruit Torta. It is entirely Vegan. It comes with seasoned jackfruit, pipits, guacamole, salsa morita, radishes, cilantro, lettuce, pickled onions and served on a toasted sweet bun. You are able to choose bagged chips or a salad for you side. I chose a salad. I love the vingerette dressing they have, its very tangy and sweet. The sandwich was very feeling and had a lot of jackfruit packed in. I could have used more guacamole on it though. Overall it was a really good sandwich, and I will order it again!
Sean ordered The New Morrissey Burrito. This is an all Vegan item as well. It is a breakfast burrito, stuffed with Mexican styled soyrizo, marinated tofu, tater tots, roasted veggies, and there house made garlic brava. When I took a bite of Sean burrito, I was worried I wouldn't like it. As a new Vegan I am still trying to like tofu, not a fan of it yet... But oh my gosh it was so goooood! I wanted to eat all of it instead of my own meal. The tofu and soyrizo were seasoned perfectly! It even had spice to it, which I love in any dish! Just typing this I want to drive up there and get one to eat right now!
Graham was really jamming out to the musician playing! This baby loves music and musical instruments. We cut up small pieces from both our meals and placed them in front of him to taste. He loved both the jackfruit and the soyrizo! He squawked for more when he had finished!
They are open seven days a week, so go try them for breakfast lunch or dinner. This is definitely one of our favorite spots to eat!
You are even able to call or order online and pick up your sandwich to go!
