People come to Kerbey Lane Cafe for pancakes, which is why we offer a Vegan pancake of the day. We even have a Vegan breakfast platter with Vegan pancakes, a seasonal Tofu Scramble and Soy Sausage. Have you tried our Vegan Breakfast tacos with Vegan Chorizo? They’re delicious! Even our omnivorous customers order them.
Kerbey is also known for our delectable Queso and in an effort to extend that pleasure to Vegans we offer a Vegan Queso served with chips and salsa. You can order it with guacamole and black beans inside to make it a Vegan Cowboy Queso. Order your Migas Vegan and you can still choose Queso as one of the sauces!

We also offer other Vegan sandwiches on our seasonal menus. Right now we have a Vegan Sloppy Joe we call the Sloppy Joel and next season we’ll have Allie’s Vegan ‘Which
Swing by for dinner and grab yourself the Greek Portabella.

Of course, no dinner is complete without dessert. Right now, at any of our five locations, you can grab a slice of Vegan Lemon cake with Strawberry frosting.
