Pink frosted toaster pastries (think Pop Tarts), doughy cinnamon rolls, (edible) glitter-sprinkled cupcakes; these are the contents of the charming glass case at Parlour Vegan Bakery, Plantation’s newest sweetery.
For such a small spot, the menu is lengthy, and includes the sweet and savoury. There are Irish cream, chocolate cookie dough and “Dunkaroo” cupcakes ($3.75); gluten-free blueberry and strawberry pop tarts ($3.50); black bean and corn empanadas ($3.50); gluten-free oatmeal cream pies ($3.75) and pillowy, massive pizza rolls ($3.95).
The line-up echoes old school snack nostalgia, and that was intentional, says co-owner Alejandra Miranda.
“A lot of my inspiration would probably be foods I grew up eating in the ’90s,” she explains.
“I love that kind of stuff and I was missing those things when I did become a vegan. I like junky snacky—if I’m going to be bad, I want to be bad and I still want it to be plant-based.”
Make no mistake, Parlour isn’t about “health food”—it’s about indulgence, and its line-up is worth every bite. From the pillowy pizza rolls to the rich, sugary oatmeal cream pies, the menu is mouth-watering. (For those looking for healthier eats, there are refrigerated snack boxes featuring hummus, fruit, chick pea salad and more.)
Miranda and her husband co-own the cake supply store next door, and decided to launch the bakery as a labour of love. While everything at Parlour is vegan, the idea is to make delicious items that appeal to everyone.
“We wanted the feel to look like a cool bakery, a cool place, and oh by the way it’s vegan,” she says.
“People think vegan is all kale and spinach and green stuff and it’s not. It’s educating our community that there are other options that are vegan-friendly and you’re not sacrificing the taste.”
The duo designed the diminutive spot themselves, and it has a chic, citified feel.
“We took trip to the Northwest and after seeing how vegan-friendly everything is we said, we should definitely do something like this, but not make it something that scares away non-vegans. If you’re vegan you’ll know it’s vegan and you’ll love it,” Miranda explains.
In addition to the baked goods, the vegan nook has coffee options, blended tea drinks and even packaged snacks, like Earth Balance cheese crackers.
They’ll also be introducing new menu items regularly, says Miranda. Soon, s’mores, cotton candy and pecan bourbon cupcakes will all be added to the case.
So far, Parlour has had a hell of a reception. It’s the spot’s third week in operation. “We sold out on Sunday, we had to close early! It was insane. Now we know, on Sundays, bake a little bit more.”
