Best Vegan Biscuits and Gravy That Won’t Leave You Missin’ The Meat

Appealing to residents on either side of the Ohio River, Fairfield Market brings coffee, cocktails, locally sourced snacks on pretty plates and a sun-dappled workspace to Bellevue’s main drag. Open since the summer of 2019, the décor blends Midcentury Modern with a Palm Desert vibe, mixing original terrazzo with contemporary furniture and plenty of outlets for charging electronics. In addition to its morning bites, daily deli operation, shareable snacks and sandwiches (try the kimchi grilled cheese), the eatery also hosts a weekly Sunday brunch. Opt for a la carte classics, avocado toast, brunch beverages (including a bloody mary; co-founder Brandon Moore was the mind behind the insane bloodies at Crazy Fox Saloon) or made-from-scratch biscuits topped with vegan mushroom gravy, a satisfyingly hearty dish that will make you forget all about the meatier alternative. Try it with an over-easy egg on top (if you swing lacto-ovo) and you will not be disappointed. Fairfield Market, 700 Fairfield Ave., Bellevue, thefairfieldbellevue.com.
