When Michael and I heard about the new vegan egg by the amazing folks at Follow Your Heart, we simply had to get it. When I went vegan six years ago this week, my last non-vegan food hold-outs were cow’s milk in my coffee and chickens’ eggs. It’s been six years and I have to say, I haven’t really missed them at all. But when I tried the vegan egg, it brought back something I had long since given up.

We felt sure we were off to a great start! The menu is inviting; multiple burger and sandwich options and all the sides you’d ever want with that burger. We opted to try as many items as possible. We ordered the slider combo, allowing us to mix and match and try more than just one burger.
