House-made seitan is the base for most menu items at Upton’s Breakroom, a bright little café attached to Upton’s Naturals, a company that makes seitan and sells it in stores across the country. The new café has a small menu, including a pastrami seitan sandwich, grilled rosemary tempeh sandwich, baked goods and vegan soft serve. The employee meal, which is a rotating bowl of grains, greens and proteins, had a base of brown rice, a layer of raw kale, a generous helping of warm seitan chunks and a small container of bright-green nut pesto. There’s a great interplay of textures and flavors, and at $6 for a good-sized serving, it’s a satisfying lunch.
