THE BEST

Posted on 07 / 13 / 2015

Great coffee, lots of non dairy milks offered, out of this world vegan baked goods, outdoor seating....it's the best bakery in Brooklyn! Can't go wrong with any of the baked goods. I haven't tried the sandwiches yet but have heard rave reviews of the tempeh rueben.

I can't claim to have tried a huge amount here, but the strudel and the cinnamon roll I had were both excellent.

I would certainly go out of my way to come back here.

Pros: Some gluten free options, Savoury things too!, Friendly staff
Cons: Limited seating

Not that great

If this is the only vegan bakery you've been to, it's good. If you've been to Pattycake or Vegan Treats, this place just can't match up. The density of many items is off - too wet or undercooked.

It's OK, but I've had better at several other bakeries.

Pros: vegan
Cons: can't match peers

Has a large selection of baked goods, along with sandwiches, salads and soup. Plus coffee and so on. Food was very good, friendly staff, and excellent music selection.

Good for working, also has little outdoor seating area.

Pros: Sunny, Variety, Outdoor seating area
Cons: Small

great food but SERVES DAIRY MILK

The food is great. But I have a serious problem with an establishment that claims to be a vegan spot that keeps dairy milk in the fridge for customers wanting it for their coffee. It makes me question the integrity of the ingredients the use for their baked goods and how seriously they take it.
It's not that hard, give them soy or almond milk.

Pros: great Danish , nice staff
Cons: serves dairy

This place wins for variety, selection, and taste. I shared an incredible slice of lemon cake and a gluten free chocolate cupcake. I will be back! They had so much to pick from!!!

I love that it's not just super sweet cupcakes. I had a savory and a sweet Danish. Both were delicious.

Counter staff was friendly, despite what other reviewer said.

Good bakery sunk by poor counter staff.

Good cakes, cupcakes, cheesecake, cookies, cinnamon rolls, danish, sandwiches. Yum!
Problem is, the counter staff is so consistently poor, and turn over so quickly, I hesitate these days in coming here. These people act like they have much more important places to be, don't listen, consistently make mistakes, are careless (squashed cakes, anyone?), painfully slow, and sometimes rude.
Is it so hard to find, train and retain decent bakery counter staff? Be serious. The day is coming soon that I'll just stop coming, recommending the place, etc. It's sad to see a good business go down because of careless staffing.
BTW, the Chai isn't vegan (honey), and they serve cow milk.

Pros: Baked goods, Sandwiches, DF Maven ice cream
Cons: counter staff, counter staff, counter staff

the only true vegan place in the neighborhood, all very delicious food (treats, sandwiches, soups in winter). cozy place to hang out. the cakes are gorgeous, an ever-changing roster.
yes it's a bakery so a lunch here is starch-heavy, as to be expected, but note to staff if you're reading this: adding salads to the menu would be a wonderful balance! :)

vegan comfort food!

I love going to Clementine Bakery because it's around the corner from where my brother in law lives and the only yummy vegan food in the area that we've found!
They have great tea and coffee, baked goods, and a sandwich board with my personal favorite: the tempeh reuben. Yes, it's smothered with Daiya cheese and I'm not usually a fan of that processed stuff, but when it's the morning after a concert and you're craving salt and bread like crazy, this is a heavenly place to find! The staff is really friendly, but they do take their time. As long as you don't mind chilling for a little while then it's all good, but don't go there when you're in a huge rush.

Pros: excellent breakfast, cozy vibe, friendly staff
Cons: a little slow
