Have you ever woken up on Sunday morning and thought to yourself, "I wish I could go somewhere and have a vegan brunch"? Well, this morning, Daiku and I got to do just that, and only steps away from our house.
The Syracuse Vegan Society (SVS) held its 3rd get-together today, for an all-you-can-eat brunch (!!) at Funk'n Waffles restaurant. (Read about our first and second dinners) The restaurant is a bright, friendly place located right next to Syracuse University.
Bridget and Tracy, our intrepid organizers made sure the event ran smoothly. We had over 40 people show up- and some people even had to be turned away!

But enough of that, on to the food! Everyone agreed that it all tasted fantastic:
- waffles & maple syrup
- french toast
- fruit salad
- tofu scramble
- tea & coffee
Here's one of Funk'n Waffles' ginger-spice muffins. (Sorry! I couldn't resist taking a bite or two before taking the photo...)
And here are the pumpkin-chocolate chip cupcakes that Tracy brought. She also baked several batches of cupcakes that some lucky attendees won as door prizes. Let's just say the phrases "tiramisu" and "s'mores" were thrown around...
In conclusion, this was such a fun event! I'm so glad to have restaurants like Funk'n Waffles willing to whip up amazing vegan food and groups like the SVS to enjoy it with! Thanks to everyone who made today so enjoyable.
