Dos Gringos

A funky, vegan-friendly Mount Pleasant gathering place.

From March 2004 Dirt Cheap Eats

In the sunny living room of a rowhouse on busy Mount Pleasant Street, you'll find this homey cafe. A haven for yuppies young and old who sit at mismatched tables reading newspapers or chatting with friends, the restaurant offers simple, healthy breakfasts. Case in point: scrambled tofu with grilled tomatoes ($3.50).

Ask about the frittata of the day ($5.25). One Friday in January, it was a perfectly cooked sweet-potato-and-green-pepper omelet. On the side: a pile of chopped kiwi, banana, and apple, and a toasted bagel with cream cheese. Cilantro scrambled eggs with melted havarti cheese ($3.50) are served on a bagel. Don't miss a steaming cup of the creamy vanilla chai tea latte ($2.75)–maybe the best in the city.
