If you haven't noticed, gluten free is everywhere. It is becoming more popular than ever, but vegan and gluten free baked goods are challenging to follow with this trend. Petunia's transforms that notion from inedible and impossible to delicious dreams incarnate.
Some of the items are very sweet, and if you don't like frosting, either avoid the cakes or remove some. The cake texture is not bad for gluten free. The cheesecakes, however, are wonderful. They are creamier and more pie-like in consistency, but that's ok by me. The price tag is high, but it costs to make this stuff!
The cookies are exciting combinations of sandwiches in mint, chocolate chip filled teases, as I would prefer the cookies alone. The bars look bountiful in ingredients, but the texture leaves something to be desired. The quick breads are passable and have a good selection, which is rare for gluten free! Among a few other items, I also heart the Salt and Straw ice cream with Petunia's salted caramel bar chunks- it is awesome and generous in serving size. The crowning glory though, and with a price tag to match, is the doughnuts. So gosh darned good! Amazing how they are gluten free! Best gf vegan doughnuts this side of reality!
They also have beer and espresso drinks, wine and soda. In too of that, they now have brekkie, lunch and dinner. It's really quite incredible. People are very happy here when eating the Mac n cheese, pot pie, waffles or spinach lasagna. The savory foods are good, but not great. However, I appreciate that they are full service for just about any portion of a day's dining experience. The waffle is delightful with the fruit compote- very generously topped.
Cons: Prices, Long waits possible
