Jyoti-Bihanga: Vegan Friendly Sunday Brunch

NORMAL HEIGHTS.  People love Sunday brunch.  This includes vegans.  Unfortunately, most restaurants rely heavily on eggs, cheese, and bacon to spice up their brunch menus.  Which is why Jyoti-Bihanga’s vegan brunch is all the more special.  Jyoti-Bihanga offers a 100% vegetarian, vegan friendly, all you can eat, Sunday brunch every other weekend from 9am – 1pm for .95.

Jyoti-Bihanga’s breakfast buffet is impressive.  The restaurant lines up tables and sets out trays of delicious, home-cooked food.

At the first table, you pick up your plate and choose among a variety of fruits and nuts.

Fruit and Granola

Next up, are the brown rice and refried beans.  The beans are particularly popular — even though Jyoti-Bihanga kept on refilling the trays, I never managed to get a picture when it was full!

And would what brunch be without crispy breakfast potatoes and mushroom gravy?

Then there’s my favorite part — the biscuits — which are excellent smothered in mushroom gravy — and whole wheat blueberry pancakes.

Biscuits and Blueberry Pancakes

Jyoti-Bihanga makes it easy for vegans to enjoy their brunch, because they CLEARLY label everything!  Perfect example, the Apple Compote (I like to top of the blueberry pancakes with it).  There’s no need to wonder if there’s butter lurking in it, because Jyoti-Bihanga tells you it’s vegan!

After going through the buffet, you might have a plate that looks something like this.  And yes, you can go back as many times as you want for more!

Jyoti-Bihanga also sets up a table for beverages and condiments.  Here, you can find drinks like tea, coffee, and soymilk and toppings like syrup, ketchup, and hot sauce.

Once you have gathered your food and drink, you can grab any open seat.  Jyoti-Bihanga is a bright and cheery place to eat.  Eating Sunday brunch here is sure to start your day of right!
