i am a cinnaholic

lemon blueberry cinnamon roll at Cinnaholic

 

in the last six days i’ve managed to squeeze in three visits to Cinnaholic, the newish vegan cinnamon roll shop located in downtown berkeley. this photo was actually taken from visit number two.. it’s a lemon frosted, blueberry topped, heavenly little bun! i’ve never been a die-hard fan of cinnamon rolls but with Cinnaholic around i am now a die-hard fan of cinnamon rolls! their buns are tender soft, ooey gooey, lip-smacking treats.

when you visit you get to pick your choice of frosting and topping from a long list of goodies. the other combination’s i tried were pumpkin spice frosting with hazelnuts (yum!), and maple frosting with blueberries, mini chocolate chips and shredded coconut (wowo!). the maple frosted bun reminded me of french toast and the blueberries added a bit of tartness to all the sweetness. it would be great to see mini cinnamon rolls soon because their rolls are so giant. i find it hard to eat a whole one and that’s saying a lot because i’m a pretty good dessert-finisher!

babycakes NYC.. and soon to be in LA

i ate all of my babycakes before i could take a picture… but! here are a few photos of the bakery. for those of you who haven’t met a babycake, well, they are one of the most delectable, toothsome, baked treats i have ever tried. they also happen to be refined sugar-free, gluten-free, wheat-free, soy-free, casein-free, egg-free, vegan, and kosher! so, there is something for everyone. and don’t let all those allergy-free warnings scare you… these are some serious sweets. i love the cinnamon toastie and lemon poppyseed teacakes. the agave brownies are also outstanding! the owner, erin mckenna recently published a babycakes nyc cookbook and it has been so fun to play with. i encourage everyone to try. gluten-free baking can be really tricky but its definitely worth the results!

oh! los angeles will soon be in luck! babycakes nyc is coming to downtown LA. you can read more here: http://vegnews.com/web/articles/food.do

not everything is gluten-free, so inquire which products are safe to eat if you have any gluten or wheat sensitivities.

casa de tree

casa de tree's curry tempeh sandwich

hello vegetable diaries,

lets talk japanese organic vegan cafe and bakery in west los angeles!

boy oh boy, i hope i get to go back to casa de tree soon. this curry flavored fried tempeh sandwich is so delightful! its a nice crusty curry tempeh slathered with tartar sauce and nestled between a little bed of cabbage and fresh bread of your choice.. i like the six-grain. you will also receive a side of pasta salad and green salad.. always fresh and always good! if you are gluten-free you can rest assured that they use wheat-free soy sauce, but still inquire about gluten in their dishes because there is a lot of seitan on the menu. they have a great buffet for $7.99/lb!

i like to look at their butternut speakers:

everyone must try this place. the menu is so creative and not overly priced. by the way, its cash only. go go go!!
