Let me just say, it was the best cup of brewed coffee I’d had in a long time. Now, let’s talk about the food and atmosphere. We were looking for an afternoon treat and a little coffee pick-me-up. Finding a café with a comfortable place to watch the world for a while? That would be an added bonus.
With a menu of sweet and savory offerings that are delicious and made in-house with tremendous care? Even better. Hm, where could we find a café with all these desirable qualities?
We were visiting the Fremont area of Seattle on a rainy, spring Saturday afternoon and decided to try the outwardly charming “Flying Apron”. Seattle's only 100% Gluten-Free and Vegan bakery as stated on the Flying Apron website.
Do not allow any preconceived idea of "health food" or "gluten-free" to keep you from reading the rest of this post! Keep going. Look at the pretty pictures. You just might be surprised at what you find. Did I mention that my cup of coffee was incredibly delicious? Just keep that in mind.
I am not a vegan myself but I do enjoy good, healthy food alternatives and scrumptious delights in any form. The delectable offerings at The Flying Apron did not disappoint. There were sweets of all varieties and a plethora of fresh lunch entrees, as well.
The Flying Apron describes it's fare in this way: “The Flying Apron Bakery is Seattle's only 100% Gluten-Free and Vegan bakery. Our products are created with your good health in mind. They are made using the finest gluten free, vegan ingredients; whole grain wheat free flours and non-hydrogenated oils. Many of our products are or can be alternatively sweetened using such ingredients as agave, maple syrup or stevia. We proudly list all of the ingredients above each product in the Flying Apron and on the label of every product that goes out to our partners.”
Additional menu items that we did not try include such treats as Apple Pie, Apricot Thumbprint Cookies, Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins, Berry Corn Muffins, Berry oat Wondies, Berry Scones, Berry Tea Bisquets, Cardamon Cupcakes with Chai Frosting… well, I think you get the idea. You might want to check out the rest of the menu on the Flying Apron website. Enjoy!
