Over the weekend, I finally had the chance to eat at Stephanie’s Bakery (4879 Voltaire St. in Ocean Beach). Be forewarned: it’s Organic and Vegan. Check out this video to get you in the Organic mood: Organic! O.K., settle down, you bacon eaters! I’m one of you, too! Having said that, this place is really good. My husband and I opted for the Veggy Edgy (a sandwich with a good amount of roasted veggies and a spicy mayo) and a BLTI (a marinated tempeh sandwich with mayo). All sandwiches are served on focaccia that is made in-house. Sometimes focaccia can be a little oily, but Stephanie’s didn’t leave my hands an oily mess, it and was really good. I loved the roasted red cabbage in my sandwich and the spicy mayo was perfect. I wished the BLTI had the same mayo. I think next time I’ll request the spicy mayo on any sandwich I order. Pizzas are on the menu, but I didn’t get a chance to try one nor did I see one served. We opted to completely indulge and ordered 2 slices of cake. We shared slices of the German Chocolate Cake and the Vanilla Passion Cake. Both desserts were very good, but the Vanilla Passion stole the show! It was super juicy and had delicious bananas and strawberries in it. And I’m usually a chocolate person! Again, don’t let the Vegan part scare you off if you aren’t usually a veggie/vegan kind of person. The flavors are solid! You won’t be disappointed. I’d be so happy to get a Vanilla Passion Cake for my birthday!! (It’s in August. Just FYI.) The only drawback is that Stephanie’s Bakery is only open Friday through Sunday. Keep in mind that only cash is accepted. For 2 sandwiches, 2 tasty Vegan Root Beers, and 2 slices of cake, we spent about $32. Check it out and let me know what you think!
Take Care and Happy Eating!
