Birdbath Neighborhood Green Bakery 05-22-2009

Location: 145 7th Ave.
Time: 5pm
People: RB and myself

Feelings: We stopped at City Bakery's all organic green bakery, Birdbath West Village location. The place is very cute and cozy with small wooden benches in a comfortable but small seating area with assorted newspapers and magazines. The dainty display of all the vegan friendly baked goods were so tempting I wanted to buy them all. Of course we could not afford, nor eat 10 different cookies and muffins, so we settled with one vegan raspberry muffin and City Bakery's iced coffee.

The vegan muffin was dense and had the mixture of crunchy and fluffy texture mixed with the nice tart flavor from raspberries. It was not overly sweet at all, but the raspberry flavor burst in my mouth as I chewed, so there was really no need for extra sweetness. Since I am a bit tired of the overly-buttered sweet cookies from Milk Bar, this is a pleasant change.

I will definitely go back there, perhaps their East Village location next, but I really wish they had bathrooms for customers! (after a big iced coffee, I could really use a bathroom!) And I thought it was a little peculiar that they were not playing any music at all since it is half a cafe. Or green cafes/bakeries are not supposed to have music?
