Renaissance Cafe, Leavenworth WA

Location: 217 8th St, Leavenworth, WA 98826, USA

One time when coming back over the mountains from Eastern Washington we stopped in Leavenworth looking for some lunch and stumbled across the Renaissance Cafe. The food was delicious so when we took a weekend to go hiking nearby I wanted to go back and eat there again. This time we ordered Dawn's Favorite Tofu Scramble - herb and garlic tofu, bell peppers, zucchini, olives, tomato, minus the cheese in a herb garlic wrap. I was really excited for this as it seemed like it would be really flavorful, but unfortunately it really tasted like nothing. For as much herb and spice as was mentioned in the description it was just...not good. I am not really sure how they did it as the veggies should at least have flavor but somehow they didn't. If this is Dawn's favorite tofu scramble...well apparently Dawn hasn't had very many or any good ones. This was served with either a side salad, pasta salad (not vegan), or god food - linguini with garlic tahini-ginger sauce. This was really tasty. It had a nice nutty garlic flavor and I would have gladly eaten more of it.

The other wrap we tried was the Bohemian - black beans and potato mix, bell peppers, sprouts, onions, guacamole and salsa in herb garlic wrap served with the god food as well since we both wanted that. This one I was not as excited to try, but it was really good. So much better than the tofu scramble one. The potato bean mixture was spiced really well and it with the other ingredients it came together nicely. If we were to go back I would definitely get this. 

Overall - Some of the food was good, some not so good. Leavenworth does not have a lot of vegan options so if you are there you could stop by but skip the tofu scramble. Or go to Munchen Haus which is amazing.
