Respond to Review of Avalon
Review: as others have noted, it's mostly a bakery. When I visited this week they had half a dozen or so vegan pastries, all on the sweet side. I had the apple pie pastry, the granola bar (which was so sweet it was mostly like dessert), a chocolate chip cookie, and a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie. Unfortunately it was breakfast, and I would have liked to see more savory vegan options. (In fairness, I don't like sweets much.) So I got the stuff to go, and ate it on the train later on. The one vegan What I had was delicious, but both the apple pie and the granola were a huge mess, and totally fell apart. Not easy to eat with your hands (at least without making a big mess of it.) The one vegan foccacia available was, in a word, boring: just a vegetable foccacia without cheese. So I passed. Several of the things I got were 16% off to celebrate their 16th anniversary, so the total price for four pastries was very reasonable: just under $6. I'd definitely go back, just with a clearer sense of what might be available for non-sweet breakfast food.
