• new flore brunch menu: VEGAN BISCUITS AND GRAVY!

    August 13th, 2010quarrygirlflore, LA restaurants

    just one more reason to love weekends in los angeles: there’s a new brunch menu at flore, and it is fantastic. seriously, you gotta get over there saturday or sunday and check it out. we are talking new scrambles, waffles, and last but not least…BISCUITS AND GRAVY.

    we went last weekend for the menu’s debut, and while i knew it would be pretty good, the food exceeded all of my expectations. i ordered the biscuits and gravy (natch), and they were nothing short of epic. for under 10 bucks, i got two massive biscuits covered in white creamy gravy and topped with flore’s homemade sausage. plus, a bed of kale with tempeh bacon on top. SO MUCH FOOD.

    the menu description doesn’t even begin to do these guys justice…it doesn’t even list the fact that they come covered in seitan sausage. i was in no way prepared for how delicious they would be. honestly, everything about them was top notch—the biscuits themselves were soft and fluffy, the gravy was rich and flavorful, the sausage bits were plump and hearty, and the kale was fresh. this meal was so good, i had to take its photo from both sides, just so you could get an idea of how glorious it was.

    honestly, i think i am gonna go order this again tomorrow. where else can you get vegan biscuits and gravy in los angeles?! nowhere that i can think of! and the ones at flore will BLOW. YOUR. MIND. i am so grateful they added these things to the menu.

    my husband went with the traditional tofu scramble, which was also flawless. it came with huge chunks of extra firm tofu, all mixed in with extremely fresh vegetables atop a bed of kale, served with sliced bread and potatoes. breakfast perfection.

    flore’s brunch menu is only served on weekends from 10am – 1pm, so don’t strut in there expecting biscuits and gravy any ole time of day. also just to clarify, these items are only available at flore in sunset junction, not to be confused with its sister restaurant the meet market down the street.

    if you don’t already have plans this weekend, i highly suggest you work brunch at flore into your schedule. the food is second to none, and the biscuits and gravy are my new favorite meal. oh, and while you are there, be sure to pick up a few croissants!

  • i had the biscuits and gravy last weekend as well and they were awwweeeeeeeesome

  • Looks quite appetizing !!

  • The tofu scramble looks delicious. I love reading your reviews even if it does make me so hungry 🙂


    I have been on a quest for vegan biscuits and gravy since the first time I had them somewhere in Salt Lake City.

    I was thinking about biscuits and gravy earlier this week too. mmmmm.

    thanks for posting, really appreciate it 🙂

  • So, for those of us who live in parts of the country with no options besides what we make ourselves…anybody know of a decent recipe for “sausage and gravy biscuits”?

  • Holy shit that looks good.

  • I had the biscuits and gravy last weekend too! So awesome!!

  • Those biscuits and gravy look so awesome!

  • the biscuits and gravy were great! i didn’t know how much i’d like the seitan sausage on top, but it was spiced perfectly and really added a depth of flavor and some texture.

    My only complaint was the biscuit was a bit too spongey and bouncy for my tastes, but I know it’s hard to get a flakey quality in a vegan biscuit.

    Thumbs up!!!

  • Quarrygirl, this meal looks SO good, I am going to go there right now! Thanks for the photos and recommendation.
