• Vegan Field Report: Sweet Freedom Bakery in Philadelphia

    January 7th, 2011quarrygirlmore restaurants (not LA), philadelphia, vegan bakers

    it’s that time again…for a vegan field report! this is the third one to come to us from kris of veganscraps, and she blogs about an entirely vegan bakery called sweet freedom located in the uncharted (by quarrygirl) territory of philadelphia. damn, it looks good! i have added this to my list of places to hit up when i finally make it to philly for an epic weekend of eating and drinking with vegan brew. check it:

    Alas, I got to visit a bakery I’ve been wanting to for a while now! Sweet Freedom Bakery is located in the artsy city of Philadelphia and it is the city’s first bakery to bring a vegan healthy take on our favorite goodies! The items they offer are 100% Vegan as well as Gluten, Corn, Wheat, Peanut, and Soy free as well, while never using any Unrefined Sugars. Naturally I had to check it out while in Philly (it was my first stop from the train station!)…

    Now let’s get to the goodies shall we? Walking in I was overwhelmed with what to order.

    They offer so many delicious treats like cookie sandwiches, magic bars, fruit crisp bars, brownies, cupcakes, sweet breads, cupcakes, and donuts!

    Pumpkin Spice: Fresh Bread made with Pumpkin Puree, Vanilla Extract, Cinnamon, Cloves, Ground Nutmeg, and Ground Ginger. $3.25

    Since there’s been a chill in the air lately and it’s beginning to feel all fall like, I decided to order a slice of “Pumpkin Spice Bread” (pictured above). Absolutely mouth-watering! Light and fluffy with a delicious flavor of pumpkin. OH SO GOOD!

    I was told by the counter staff that the cookie sandwiches are the most popular so i decided to get the “Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwich”…

    Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwich: 2 Chocolate Chip Cookies filled with Vanilla Frosting. $3.50

    This thing was killer, I mean never have I tasted such decadent flavors! The cookies were perfectly thin and crisp and then they put the frosting in the middle?!! Complete and total Bliss…you have to try one!

    I absolutely adored this cute little bakery on South Street! Friendly staff and delicious desserts! They also serve up nice hot organic teas to go along with it! If you ever head to Philly, be sure and stop in for some healthy baked goods- you wont be sorry!! Eat clean, sweet and healthy!!

  • i’ve had sweet freedom goodies shipped to me in LA!!! their cinnamon sugar donut is amazing – and i don’t even like donuts!

    Looks so fantastic, I hope something like this will open in Los Angeles soon!!!

  • Isn’t there a Babycakes in LA? It’s also friendly for those with allergies.

  • Next time you are in Philadelphia, walk one block (from Sweet Freedom) to the corner of South and Broad. There is a restaurant there called Govinda’s that gets a shipment from a bakery called Vegan Treats every Thursday.
    Vegan Treats blows Sweet Freedom out of the water and seriously puts it to shame. Sweet Freedom is a mediocre bakery at best. Trust me, go for Vegan Treats instead.

  • I went to Govinda’s – Delicious food and vegan treats for sure, but I enjoyed Sweet Freedom as well:):)

  • also to VEGAN Zagets:: There is a Babycakes Downtown LA!:):)

  • The two are totally different. It’s like comparing cake and pudding. Sweet Freedom is for those with allergies and and Vegan Treats is for though with a massive sweet tooth who need their craving soothed by large amounts of refined sugar and Crisco, and yes she uses the vegetable kind of Crisco.

    The point is SFB is not trying to be anything it’s not and saying they aren’t Vegan Treats is stating the obvious.

  • And they are also now in Downtown Disney outside of Orlando, FL.

  • Keep up the good reviews! Mouth watering! Go Vegan Scraps/QuarryGirl!!
