I may have just died and gone to vegan heaven. I visited Seattle’s newest bakery–and the only all-vegan one. Oh my!
Violet Sweet Shoppe is adorable. It’s decorated in pastels with vintage-inspired shadowboxes and packaged sweets. And who wouldn’t want to take that ambience in?
I got to meet Mike and Crystal, the shoppe’s owners, during my visit. They’re the nicest, most talented pastry chefs this side of San Francicso (which is where they learned the craft and where the business originated). Now, Seattle is the lucky city!
I ordered a coffee and chocolate cup (complete with fresh berries) and enjoyed them in the store. And I also took with me what turned out to be the world’s best chocolate chip cookie. I tried the shortbread too (something that isn’t usually vegan). I had a chocolate one, a lemon one, and a vanilla one. What? I had to try them for this review!
I might renew my wedding vows just so I can order a cake.
For daily eye candy, “like” Violet Sweet Shoppe’s Facebook page. For the real deal, head over to 3612 NE 45th Street (just east of U Village).
