Suzette Creperie
Suzette Creperie offers vegan & gluten-free dessert crepes dripping with chocolate hazelnut spread or cider-poached apples, but our money's on the savory buckwheat crepe with marsala soaked figs, roasted garlic-chickpea spread, caramelized onions, spinach, and silken tofu garlic sauce ($9). 3342 SE Belmont St; suzettepdx.com

Los Gorditos
Piled with beans, scrambled tofu, lettuce, tomato, avocado, jalapeños, onions, cilantro, and a choice of soyrizo or soy curls, this breakfast torta looks strikingly similar to the lunch & dinner torta, but we still endorse eating it at 8 am ($7). Three locations; losgorditospdx.com
