New Vegan Favorite: Deer Mama
The choices. Deer Mama is quickly becoming a favorite for their burgers & (boozy) milkshakes, wether it’s by a plant-based eater or a true carnivore. For lunch you can go there for all sorts of pastries, donuts and stacked sandwiches. Our favorite definitely is the Fancy Pants Pancake Stack, that comes with blueberries, banana, pecan crumble, agave syrup and pashmak candy. For dinner The Funky Mushroom Burger with lettuce, shallot compote, sauerkraut, watercress and truffle mayonnaise is really worth the mention. To make it complete, add some Crunchy Sweet Potato Fries with mayonnaise and a White Russian Vanilla & Vodka Milkshake to that. Oh, and let’s not forget their Miso Glazed Cinnamon Bun. It’s all good and all vegan!
