Guest Post: Milwaukee’s Comet Cafe Part 1

Our latest guest post comes all the way from Midwest from the lovely Kelly Peloza, author of delectable baking book The Vegan Cookie Connoisseur and blogger at Seitan Beats Your Meat.  Today she shares with us some really tasty looking offerings from Comet Cafe in Milwaukee. Can someone please take me there now?

Comet Cafe Mac n' Cheese

Comet Cafe has more to offer the vegan crowd than free bacon Sundays and the hamburger-encased grilled cheese sandwich made infamous by Guy Fieri (this was a real thing, I swear! Look up the Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives episode and ignore the bacon propaganda)! Despite all the meatiness, Comet is a go-to restaurant for any vegan in Milwaukee. Their menu has an abundance of vegan diner-style sandwiches, brunch, and entrees such as the Vegan Deep fried ribs, Open-Faced Meatloaf Sandwich, Kelly’s Vegan Breakfast Scramble (I wish I could say that was named after me!), and some really fantastic french fries. Their Mac n Cheese made vegan is a somewhat recent addition to the menu. It’s your basic nooch sauce mac n cheese with a nutty flavor, baked with breadcrumbs. While the flavor is mellow and not too out of the ordinary, it really shines as straight-up home cooked comfort food. I bet it would be fantastic with a side of chili.
