I have a sweet tooth, it's true, so this review is only for their sweets. There are so many options these days for vegan sweets, it's no longer exciting just to have vegan dessert - they must be good. The ones at Terri are good, but not excellent. The frosting on the cupcakes is slightly heavy, but for a cafe style establishment, it is perfectly on par with expectations. The cookies are also standard for this type of cafe - good flavor, but not out of this world. They don't crumble, which is good. They are hearty and filling.
The doughnuts are not traditional doughnuts, and I would say they are baked in a mold/ pan, as they look more like shaped muffins with a hole than deep-fried bad-for-you doughnuts. Granted, they are good with a nice apple cider base for cinnamon sweet flavor, but they are not doughnuts. If I had a choice, I would buy the brownie instead of the doughnut because the brownie has the heartiness of a picnic- ready brownie: ready to go anywhere and deliver a rich chocolate flavor.
The smoothies are delicious. It might be because they freeze their own fruit and/or add in agave nectar. Either way, I was very surprised at how I found the Terri Berri beyond my expectations. Delicious and worth the price.
The prices are great for the desserts, and I would not hesitate to go back and order 1 of everything off the counter! If the prices were higher, I might say the rating was lower, but because of the incredible prices for dessert, based on those, my expectations were quite satisfied. Yum!
