Once you start looking for it, it is surprising how many bakeries are either fully plant-based (as EF) or at least have options. That's not to say that we need more baked treats but it's nice to know that they are out there. Located on West Broadway near Arbutus, Edible Flours is only one bus from Commercial Street Station.
In an area that I have come to refer to as the Vegan Triangle (ask me why), Kingsway, Broadway and Main, we stopped for lunch at Budgies Burritos where everything on the menu including quesadillas and nachos, is vegan friendly. It is our second use of this year's Plant Curious Plant Based Deals Book which has now officially paid for itself!
We love this year's Plant Curious Plant-Based Deals Book even more than last year's. This year's book is less expensive to purchase, has more deals, and is valid for a longer period of time! Why haven't you bought yours yet! There are a few places in the book that we have never been to and didn't know about. Sushi Maro was on our list already but the book saved us a few bucks!
Cobs Bread is making the purchasing of plant-based items from their bakeries easy and exciting. They are providing ease by clearly labelling, in-store and online (search plant based) which items are suitable for vegans and there is a surprising choice. Also, they are providing motivation, by advertising on Insta and elsewhere, their latest vegan item, Cinnamon Buns!
I found this place only because it popped up on Google Maps in a place where I was not expecting to see a donut shop (in the middle of a residential area). It turns out that I am the last to know about it as they were already closed the first time we ventured by one Saturday afternoon (sold out!). The next time I showed up just after opening at 8:30 am on Sunday morning and had my first thing in the morning choice of some beautiful donuts.
Vegan pizza is definitely becoming more of a thing all the time and I seem to be reviewing a lot of it (well, I like pizza!). However, I notice that particularly on frozen pizza (which we rarely buy) there is a hefty vegan tax despite the fact that there is affordable and decent quality vegan cheese available now. I always debate (with myself mostly) whether the vegan tax applies due to low volumes (no economy of scale) or the notion that vegans are generally wealthier (not this guy) and you can charge them more? Regardless, there are pizza joints too, that charge more and there are pizza joints that charge the same for the vegan cheese option and frankly, I am happy for either.
