Healthy Vegan Eats in San Diego: Stephanie's Bakery

Yes, I'm at it again...traveling across the country to bring you photos of some of the best vegan food in San Diego!  Okay, so that was not the sole purpose of my trip, but I will always find an excuse to seek out great food and take photos.  And maybe one day I will be living on the West Coast, who knows?

Have you ever had an amazing salad, so amazing that you came back the next day to have it again?  It happened to me at Stephanie's Vegan Bakery on Ocean Beach! 

My mouth starts to water every time I see these photos, it was THAT good!  And they only have one salad on the menu, it's their "Salad of the Day".  It is a spinach salad with shredded purple cabbage, sprouts, Enoki mushrooms, artichoke hearts sliced thin, blackberries, sunflower seeds tossed in a pomegranate vinaigrette.  I will be trying to duplicate this one really soon!

I dragged my husband with me on the second visit and he had the vegan pizza with pineapple and fake ham.  I let him try my salad and he admitted that the salad was better than the pizza :-)  I love it when I'm right.

Not to be overlooked are the Gluten Free Vegan Tollhouse Brownies.  Those were really good too...

Stephanie's is a small, independently owned bakery.  Everything is vegan, organic and she offers several gluten free options.  The menu includes pizza, sandwiches, a salad and a wide variety of desserts. The bakery is open only on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11-7. I'll definitely be back next time I'm in San Diego!
