I used to go to Ray’s quite a lot before I was vegan. In the old days they did mostly things with eggs and turkish bread. I haven’t been for a few years, partly due to a friend moving house (Ray’s was a convenient point for breakfast) and partly because the menu then wasn’t so vegan friendly. That has changed. They now have quite a few clearly marked vegan and vegan option dishes on their menu.
I am definitely a savoury person at breakfast so the three sweet options were out. I almost went for a white bean tagine, which sounded great, but I am not a huge fan of Moroccan spicing. So instead, I ended up going for a breakfast mezze, which consisted of good sourdough toast with three vegan sides of tomato and mushrooms with a couple of hash browns. The hash browns were of the pre-made variety, which I secretly love, though I had expected them to be house made. The stars of the show were some deliciously sweet cherry tomatoes halved and dressed with basil and olive oil. They were great. The mushrooms were good too.
Coffee, as always, was great. They have soy and almond milk.
I enjoyed my return to Ray’s and it is nice to have it back on my list of breakfast places.
