**VERY, VERY VEGAN FRIENDLY** I've been vegan for about four years and have literally had every vegan breakfast dish available in all of Boulder. Tangerine has recently updated their menu and now includes excellent vegan options. 'The Vegan' comes with sautéed tempeh, pinto beans, breakfast potatoes, eggplant caponata, sautéed spinach, a delicious bell pepper sauce, a walnut pesto with mint, and avocado. The only thing one may want to order on the side is toast. I highly recommend this dish to anyone looking for a solid vegan breakfast and I really feel that it's now the BEST vegan breakfast option in Boulder that isn't coming from a dedicated vegetarian restaurant, particularly because it is not 'just' the more common tofu scramble or oatmeal, and it also includes 2 proteins as well as 2 vegetables, greens and potatoes, and 2 sauces, as well as no up-charge for replacing eggs with tofu or tempeh. Some other vegan options they have include a 'corned beef hash' but ask for tempeh instead of beef. I look forward to trying this next time I go. In addition, they also have almond milk and rice milk for smoothies or coffee/tea. 'The Vegan' was seriously delicious. There are some other dishes on the menu that can be veganized by replacing the eggs with tempeh and asking them to hold any cheese, and this is what I used to do when I went, but honestly, 'The Vegan' was so killer that it will be hard to order anything else there from here on out! If you or someone in your party is vegan, consider trying out tangerine for breakfast/brunch. It is a completely refreshing option and everyone will be able to be accommodated deliciously: vegetarian, vegan, omnivorous, or gluten free.
