Uhm, Petunia's might just be the cutest eating establishment EVER. It also happens that everything on the menu is vegan and gluten free.
Even the sign is cute
And the inside is adorable as well!
And the baked goods? They ALL look amazing.
I'LL HAVE ONE OF EVERYTHING - THANKS!
Except that if I ate one of everything I would surely go into a coma from all the delicious sugar. But seriously - LOOK AT THIS STUFF! Gluten free items are usually little bricks, everything is so fluffy and NORMAL looking.
Unfortunately, I stopped in midday for lunch so I was unable to gorge myself on sweet delicious pastries - but I'll definitely be back to try them out. Petunia's is not only a bakery, they also serve regular food and cocktails.
I ordered and went to sit at one of the adorable tables.
On each table there is a candle and a list of cocktails with suggested dessert pairings - every table has a different frame.
I ordered the Tomato, Basil & "Mozzarella" flatbread ($6.50). It doesn't look like much, but it was very dense and very filling. I didn't know if I would like it once I saw it, but it was very, very good. The flatbread was a different texture from anything else I've had, but it went really well with the slightly spicy sauce and the "cheese". I honestly could NOT tell I was eating vegan "cheese". I really liked this and would definitely order it again - although next time I hope to try the Pesto Pasta Salad ($7.00), they were out of it when I was there.
