Brooklyn Whiskers Brick & Mortar
Vegan ShopUp vendor Brooklyn Whiskers has its own space now! The Electrician and I hit them real early to avoid unnecessary social interaction. The fact that they’re actually open early suits us early birders quite nicely. Bakeries should open single-digits early. Them’s the rules.
I got a cinnamon roll with candied pecan. It was yummy but with a stiff dough was missing that soft, drippy, sticky, cinnamon-y ooze you want from a roll.
There was plenty to choose from even at door-busting hour.
But I had to get a croissant stuffed with tofu scramble and potatoes. Vegan croissants are tough. Likely because butter is responsible for most of a croissant’s characteristics. So it’s one of those things that I’ll have to order if available. Though this was more like a layered thin biscuit, it made for a delicious breakfast sandwich.
Looking at layers.
Cats, cats everywhere. How perfect–cat freak all-vegan bakery. Love these Linzer tarts.
I also picked up a red velvet cupcake which more had the texture of a dense almond cookie. Pleasant though not what I was expecting. I really appreciate those real vanilla beans.
The bathroom is covered in cat pictures, floor to ceiling, wall to wall.
