The New "American Standard," Vegan and Gluten-free

The Vegan American Standard breakfast at Liberty Market - $9.50

Before today, I can honestly say I've never taken a picture of my food to post online.  Besides making me want to take a picture, this breakfast made me want to return tomorrow.

Gilbert Arizona Restaurant | Liberty Market

Liberty Market is an award winning community grounded restaurant in Old Town Gilbert Arizona. From creative takes on the classic favorites to hand-crafted espresso and house made pastries, Liberty Market is a one-of-a-kind in the East Valley.


Any meal at Libery Market will remind a visitor why this place continues to be one of the top-ranked restaurants in the area.  Fresh, delicious food, great service, and beautiful plates just to name a few.  It's a great spot for a casual business lunch or date night.  I'd been there many times before, but this was the first time I was paying attention to the things I could--and couldn't--eat.  I settled on the Vegan American Standard for it's dairy- and gluten-free promise.

The menu says: scrambled tofu, diced sweet potatoes sauteed with peppers and onions (non-dairy), side green salad, avocado, wheat toast.

I'll add that it also came with a delicious dressing and what appeared to be fresh-made blueberry jam.  The counter replaced the wheat toast with a gluten-free option at no charge.  I did not sample the blueberry jam as that fruit is high on my list of things to avoid.

I don't consider myself a connoisseur of tofu, but I can't imagine a better tasting egg alternative.  The tofu was appropriately seasoned and the texture was superb.  The sweet potatoes were also cooked to perfection, a little caramelized and soft but not mushy.  I had my reservations about the mixed green salad for breakfast, but the sweet dressing quickly conquered that irrational fear and I gobbled it down.

The only thing I could possibly be disappointed about in this meal is the size.  Don't get me wrong, it was fairly priced at $9.50.  The tofu stuck with me decently enough, but I needed a snack before lunchtime.

I can only recommend Liberty Market and this menu item; I give it a very easy five star rating.


Tofu has a fair amount of protein, making this a nicely rounded breakfast.  I estimate probably 1/2 cup of tofu on the plate, so there was probably 10g of protein or more in this meal.

I failed to ask my order-taker if the gluten-free toast had egg in it (many brands do), which would obviously disqualify it as vegan.
