The Local Food Review: Sweetpea Baking

Sweetpea Baking Co. was the first vegan bakery storefront in the Portland area, located at 1205 SE Stark St. I had stopped in for various treats on my NW sojourns but had never tried a sandwich until I moved here. Pictured above is the P. Cole with layers of Daiya, remoulade, seitan, pickles and tomato. I had missed the sandwiches at Snice when I left Brooklyn and was pleased to find a place in Portland to fill that hole in my heart. I highly recommend a side of the macaroni salad, too.

When you visit go next door to Herbovire and say hello to the nice folks and get a sweatshirt while you're at the Vegan mini mall. Then hop into Food Fight and buy all the jars of crunchy Speculoos. And then come say hi to me so I can have some of those jars.

If I remember right, Sweetpea was once planning a cookbook. Is that still in the works?
