Respond to Review of Vegan Treats Bakery
Review: John Z and I used to make nearly a weekly pilgrammage here, growing more and more excited on the way as we try to guess what the softserve will be. Yesterday it was peanut butter, omg, heavenly! Pumpkin and coconut are other favorites of ours. I heard the chocolate peanut butter was good, but that bit of takeout disappeared from the freezer before I could get my spoon into it. :-) As others have said, how do they do it? This is not an inexpensive bakery, but it is well worth it for the ethics and the flavors. My friend demands to be brought a cowboy cookie each time I go. I'd love to work here to learn a few vegan cooking tricks in the back room. Vegan does not mean sugarfree or fatfree or even lowfat, but still, I think of all the butter and milk and eggs I am avoiding and feel healthier. We like it best when they play punk or emo -- just seems in line with the shop's image. The 20ish guy that works there is extremely personable and helpful. I often wish they would post more signs, so I can learn what is called what and how much things are. You have to ask, if you don't know, and you can feel like a pain if you have a lot of questions: "Ok, so what is that yellow thing with the chocolate stars?" "What is the round one with the cookie on top?" Desserts from here used to be served at Balasia in Emmaus, a great vegan date restaurant that anyone would love but which sadly closed. That is where I first learned of the Peanut Butter Bomb, which I had for breakfast on my birthday. I *did* have a helper, btw. They have really cool t-shirts, sized for women, too!
