My husband Phil and I stopped in for brunch recently at Highwater, the new restaurant on Q Street that was formerly home to Pour House.  I had seen a couple of actual vegan items listed on their menu and was eager to check them out.

I ordered the cleverly-named Vegan Hangover Helper Scramble.  It consisted of a tofu, soyrizo, and spinach scramble, breakfast potatoes, fresh fruit, and toast.  It was an incredibly satisfying vegan brunch!

I had hoped to get back to Highwater for lunch last week, but that didn't work out.  They do have a vegan plate on their lunch and dinner menu, though.  It's the Vegan Stuffed Portabello Mushroom, with marinated zucchini, squash, red onion, artichoke, and a balsamic reduction.  The Deli Lama's Grilled Veggie Sandwich looks like it might be vegan too, although you'll probably want to double-check before you order it.

Highwater is located at 1910 Q Street, and their phone number is 916-706-2465.  Their website address is and their Facebook page can be found at  The restaurant is open Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m., and on Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m.
