New in Town
There is a new bakery in town AND it is gluten-free and vegan. Start From Scratch has not even been opened a week and I have now been there twice, it is that good! Located in Pinecrest, just south of Trader Joe’s, they have a variety of baked good and a fabulous lunch menu, all from a certified gluten AND dairy free kitchen. It is rare to find such a place in Miami, and to find one this delicious is a real treat. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, owners and staff are knowledgeable, and it is the ONLY completely gluten-free bakery in South Florida. Delicious, vegan, organic and gluten-free, this place is sure to become a hit. Start From Scratch Bakery gets a green light when it comes to being Celiac and Gluten-Sensitive friendly!
My husband and I tried the
Pita Stuffed With Spinach, Tomatoes, Homemade Baked Falafel & House-Made Chipotle Mayo With A Side of Potato Fusion and Nachos Organic Blue Corn Tortilla Chips, Black Beans, House-Made Pico de Gallo, House-Made Chipotle Mayo & House-Made Sour Cream for lunch.
They were great. Pita bread was nice and soft, the nachos were full of flavor. I am not sure what is in vegan sour cream, but it was really good.
For dessert we picked up a variety of goodies.
All of their baked goods were moist, there was none of the grit that you usually get with gluten-free baked goods. Our favorites were the muffins. They are all amazing. After eating the Banana Muffin my husband said,
Babe, your Banana bread is great, but I hate to tell you, this is better.
I personally found the cupcake to be a bit on the sweet side, but my husband liked it. There was a delicious blueberry frosting, but unfortunately it melted before we got home, so it didn’t make it into the pictures. The cookies and chocolate bar were really good as well. Currently I am on a bit of a sugar overload, which makes me really glad I had grabbed an extra piece of the pita bread. It made for the perfect snack to balance out the sugar.
