Wayward Vegan Cafe is the friendly greasy-spoon diner that would be a massively successful franchise on a meat-free alien planet. Breakfast is served all day, and the menu covers everything from fake chicken and waffles to fried (fake) mozzarella wedges and meat-less-ball subs. Whatever you do, don’t skip the tempeh bacon - it has enough crunch and liquid smoke to taste like the real thing. Well, almost.
