Patchogue’s main strip. Like many in-touch eateries, they get that a vegan option is easy enough to throw together. The dish on the rise at omni establishments all about the country seems to be the Tofu Scramble. I have a growing list of eateries on my radar that offer it. And on Long Island too! Toast has a flavorful tofu scramble though the cubed tofu could use some marination. Big points for the fresh spinach and very delicious potatoes.
Next, some sweet treats. Little Nook Cafe is a kooky lil’ coffeeshop with a limited menu, included vegan pizza options of the Daiya kind. They also have a separate bakery case with that is all-vegan. Inside, treats from Vegan Treats, Long Island’s Pride Enjoy, as well as Betsy Bakes, a local gluten-free & vegan baker with no website. Or no website I could locate, at least.
Betsy Bakes! makes a yummy gluten-free, vegan cupcake! Far better than most I’ve had on Long Island. It was moist and chocolate-y. The kind that sticks to your fingers like a Devil Dog. Don’t you just love that? I also got her chocolate chip and potato chip cookie. I’ll report on that after I try it–great combination!
I contributed to Pride Enjoy’s kickstarter a while back and I am happy to see them being distributed locally! I also saw them recently at Wild By Nature. I’m a sucker for rainbow cookies. And Pride Enjoy does them right.
