3 Brothers Pizza Cafe – Long Island, NY –> OMG, Vegan Mozzarella Sticks!
I totally broke my own rule this time! I’ve been pining over 3 Brothers Pizza Cafe for nearly a year, after first hearing about them, and I just had to stop in. The broken rule? Visiting a restaurant that serves meat! I know, I know. I’m sorry! However, 3 Brothers has a FULL vegan menu. We’re talkin’ a Sunday brunch menu featuring scrambles, pancakes, french toast, crepes, omlets, and more. As well as a cafe menu that includes mozzarella sticks (these are so good!), buffalo drumsticks, vegan calamari, more than ten different pasta dishes, calzones, heroes, burgers, and of course pizza. More than ten different pies plus custom made pies too!

They might as well just be 100% vegan, IMO. However, when 2 out of 3 brothers aren’t vegan I can see how that could be a challenge. According to their website, Jay Astafa (the vegan brother.. who is only 20 years old, or something crazy young like that) was upset that there were no vegan options on the menu. So what did he do? He created a full vegan menu, of course! And it’s a friggin’ good one at that! Way to be, Jay! Way to be.
Mozzarella Sticks!!! Wow… just remembering these makes me want to drive back up to NY. **drools** — these yummy delights are breaded daiya mozzarella served with a very tasty tomato sauce. These are hands down, the best vegan mozz sticks I’ve ever had. No question.
Naturally I needed to try one of their pies as well. I ended up ordering The Works – seitan meatballs, seitan sausage, soy pepperoni, onions, green peppers, mushrooms, daiya mozzarella, and tomato sauce. It was great!
I truly wish I had more time in the area because I would have LOVED to try some of the classic Italian dishes that they have. Seitan Piccata! Oyster Mushrooms in Scampi Sauce! Baked Ziti! Fettuccine Alfredo! Spaghetti Bolognese! Pesto Pasta! Eggplant Rollantini! I could go on but it’s only torturous to do so. But you should totally go. If you’re even remotely close to the Long Island area definitely check out 3 Brothers Pizza Cafe!
