There’s an interesting distraction during the wait for a table at this sunny vegetarian brunch spot: A TV often shows the late Indian guru Sri Chinmoy (whose teachings the VB staff follows) lifting heavy things—a crew of firemen, a helicopter, a baby elephant. Impressive, but we’re bigger believers in the two-inch-thick French toast slathered in peach butter and maple syrup, or the pesto-laden free-range scrambled eggs in the Satisfaction Promise, which comes with crispy potatoes and crusty bread. A side of fakin’ bacon and a double-shot latte and you’re off to a cruelty-free start to your day.
