For the gluten-free vegan feeling lost in Brooklyn without Manhattan's famous Babycakes or Tully's gluten-free bakeries, fear no more. Sun in Bloom might (dare I say it?) be an even better choice.
Actual seating, for one, differentiates this spot from the Manhattan options, chairs and tables where you can comfortably relax for a meal. I just picked up dessert this time, though.
The expresso (sic) fudge drops, which could otherwise be described as the darkest chocolatiest cupcakes I may ever have had, served as my introduction to Sun In Bloom.
After the way the quality of the moist and rich little devils food treat impressed me, I am raring to have a go at the rest of their menu, which includes raw, vegan, and/or gluten-free items, all clearly marked. Here are some items that caught my eye:
Sunrise Scramble (G) daily aphrodisiac tofu fusion, refreshing steamed greens, bean of the day & brown rice
Bloom Burger (G, R) famously delicious live burger, tomato, basil, caramelized onions and cabbage with live sunflower dill dressing
Sunny "Couture" Futomaki" (G, R) (Request Raw) an aphrodisiac blend of raw vegetables, avocado, romaine, brown rice, sesame ginger dressing, wrapped in nori
Can't wait to get back!
