Have you ever had trouble finding a restaurant for breakfast with lots of gluten free choices? Well, that happened to me last weekend. We were going to Superfood Express in Santa Monica for breakfast. When we got there we found out the restaurant didn’t open for another 30 minutes. We took a quick walk around the block and when we got back the restaurant was open. I was happy to see a lot of organic and gluten free choices on the menu. I decided to order a gluten free waffle with organic fruit and Maple syrup.
When I took a bite out of this waffle, it was so good it was lip smacking. The crunchy part of the outside, the soft part of the inside, and the sweetness of the maple syrup and the fruit on top made my mouth water. After I was done with the waffle, I took my fork and tried to scrape up all of the crumbs. I didn’t want to leave a single smackeroo.
If you have a dog, you can bring your dog here because they do have outside tables. We just adopted a rescue dog and she has been living with us for nearly a month now. We named her Bagel. I think that is funny because I am the gluten free kid and I am always talking about food. Anyway, she is so sweet. BUT she has separation anxiety and cannot be left alone for more than 10 seconds! She has to be with someone every second of her life – or at least she thinks she does. So we brought her with us.
Superfood Express also has other breakfast options there like scrambles. You can get these with eggs like my dad did or with tofu like my mom did. My mom thought her scramble tasted more like a lunch stir fry than a breakfast scramble. But both scrambles were good size portions and looked healthy.
This restaurant is a great choice for people who are gluten free and vegetarian or vegan because there are so many choices. And the outside patio makes it good for people who want to bring their whole family including their dog family members. If you are near downtown Santa Monica be sure to check this place out.
