GEORGIE’S DINER // WEST HAVEN, CT
I’m not sure if I’ve written about it before, but one thing to know about me is that I am absolutely OBSESSED with Happy Cow. Happycow.net is a website dedicated to helping vegetarians and vegans around the would to find veg-friendly restaurants and stores in their area. It is complete with reviews, address, and usually a link to the menu and website. Any restaurant that is Happy Cow certified is a place that understands the diet and ideals of a person who has chosen these types of lifestyles and I, for one, know that I can trust them. I’m slowly but surely making my way through all of the Happy Cow certified restaurants in my area. Plus they have an app that easily shows you what’s around!! Clearly, I would totally recommend downloading it.
As a vegan, it can be unfortunately very difficult to go out to breakfast. Bacon and eggs, or even regular pancakes, aren’t really an option for me. So on a little excursion this past weekend, my boyfriend (who has downloaded the Happy Cow app since he met me- what a sweetie!) and I found a diner in New Haven county in CT that boasted an entire vegan menu: Georgie’s Diner. You read that right- a DINER! Do you know how long I have been craving a (cruelty free) diner breakfast?! Far too long. Anyways, I got this INCREDIBLE southwestern hash and tofu- all vegan and all amazzzzzzing. And it turns out that Georgie’s is a sister location to Shoreline Diner and Vegetarian Enclave so we hit up that location a week or so later while at my friend’s beach house in Guilford, CT. The thing I love most is that everyone can feel comfortable ordering and get exactly what they want!
