Vegan Victories: Early Bird Coffee & Kitchen
Early Bird Coffee & Kitchen | 613 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M5V 2B7, Canada
Early Bird has been a favorite. Conveniently located on Queen Street, this urban Toronto coffee shop crushes it with their espressos, specialty lattes & yes - vegan treats. It's a favorite working environment, with only one communal table where laptops/screens are permitted. Early Bird has a steady flow of visitors contributing to a pleasant white noise background conducive to productivity.
I had some time to spare between a busy Serve Yoga day & peeped the pastry case at Early Bird. To my surprise, there was a new goodie! A vegan matcha cheesecake. I have to say, the VALUE of this was great. it was roughly $4 for my piece, but such a dense delicacy! I could only get through half of if in my sitting & then finished the rest of it in the evening.
The crust: tastes like a pine nut + other nut blend. The filling tastes of a cashew + matcha blend. In a nutshell: 10/10! We all know textures are hard to achieve with vegan foods. This piece was nothing short of satisfying. The crumbled nut garnish to finish adds a delicious cr-uuuu-nch. YUM!
Maybe matcha isn't your thing? You'll find great vegan powerballs here - spirulina & beet fused to name a few. These bites are packed with superfoods - so healthy, so tasty, a seriously rare combination. Next time you're on Queen Street West take a stroll, make a pit stop at Early Bird - this matcha is a [must]ah!
