The Angry Baker is a new bakery located on Oak Street in Old Towne East. Proprietor Vicki Hink offers a full range of delicious baked goods with an outstanding array of choices for vegetarians and vegans alike.
The bakery is easy to find for those familiar with Yellow Brick Pizza-- it's right across the street. The decor is old fashioned and whimsical, with seating for about 15.
In addition to the cinnamon rolls, pies, cakes and various cookies, the Angry Baker makes breakfast items like French toast and lunch options like Blue Jacket Dairy mac and cheese, a vegan sloppy joe (the snobby joe) and a vegetarian portabella "bacon" lettuce and tomato sandwich with a garlic aioli. The sandwiches come with a lightly dressed mesclun salad with house made croutons.
The aforementioned PBLT had crispy thin sliced mushrooms filling in for bacon. The soft white bread soaks up the flavor of the 'shrooms as well as the garlic mayo. It was fantastic.
The vegan blueberry brownie was delightful. The tart berries provide a great contrast to the bitter dark chocolate notes that form the base of the brownie's flavor.
In addition to catering to meatless diners, the Angry Baker also has a number of gluten-free baked goods. If they're half as tasty as the vegan sandwiches and baked goods, they are worth checking out.
