Is it gluten free?

Nothing yummier than an eggless, butterless croissant. Personally, I’d rather eat the paper bag it came in.  :-)

Welcome to the ‘hood!  It’s nice to have a new business in the area – and something different, too.

Which I’m sure is where most of your meals and drinks come from.

Oh, come on people.  If you don’t eat vegan, or are unwilling to experiment, don’t go.  But please don’t diss the place before it even opens.

Doesn’t all food come home in a bag or do you carry it home on your oxen?

Yes, because everyone who ears pork gets heart disease. I read that on the internets.

So, how do you know if someone is vegan?

Oh don’t worry, they’ll tell you.

I’m not a vegan and probably won’t be going to this place, but welcome to the neighborhood anyway.  There are vegans out there who need places to go, so may it serve them well.

So it’s a bit of a soft opening, with only a few items on the shelves.

But they have this almond-poppyseed muffin that is made of deliciousness! There’s a slight nutty crunch to it; it’s so refreshing to taste a treat whose sumptuousness derives from FLAVOR rather than from excessive gooiness.

Seriously, everyone go eat these muffins before they’re gone!

We can always make fun of internet cranks who feel threatened by anything outside their very small comfort zone.

I’m not a vegan, nor have I played one on TV, but it’s nice to have options like this in the neighborhood for those people who are into it or have dietary needs. I’ll probably stop by to see what they have. Although I’ve had mixed results trying vegan options, one of my favorite snacks at Ladro is the vegan oat bar (which I suspect they would sell a lot more of if it didn’t have the word “vegan” in the name) so I look forward to finding something there that is equally as good.
The small minded and the douchey will mock this place as they mock anything that isn’t blessed by their talk radio simpletons, but another bakery is another bakery and it means snacks and jobs for Ballard, so what’s really not to like?

Well, I’ve never been harassed by an omni-vorve but had several of these loons approach my kids at the farmers market to give them vegan propaganda without my permission. Does that count as ‘outside [my] very small comfort zone’
