LA Vegan Crepe + Sweet E's Bake Shop + Milky’s Frozen Yogurt + Munchies

I'm posting this on several meetup groups so hopefully more people will go.

There's a new vegan restaurant called LA Vegan Crepe.  I went there on their grand opening with a couple of friends and we shared 3 different crepes.  They were very good.

"They offer vegan and gluten free treats and they are also Kosher." -Azie N.

"I like their vegan chocolate cupcake and the mint vegan chocolate cupcake." - Francine M.

"We tried the Vegan Lemon cupcake (it was simply delicious), Vanilla Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (not too good the cake was was very heavy and the icing too thick), Blue Velvet cupcake  (very interesting flavors I was pleasantly suprised), and lastly the Key Lime cupcake ( very moist)." - Tamara R.

Yay!  Sweet E's has yummy  vegan treats!!!

I've been to Sweet E's several times now, and here's the scoop for my vegan peeps:
On any given weekday, they have one flavor of vegan mini-cupcake, and on the weekends, they have three flavors. I had the chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting, and it was a very satisfying little bite of yumminess. The cake was moist and not overly sweet, and the frosting was rich, chocolatey and super-sweet...just how I like it.
They also have vegan "rice crispy treats"...how could you go wrong? a classic.
The vegan brownie was delish. Rich and uber-chocolatey, fudgy, and it had that shiny, flaky, super-thin layer on the top, just like the best home-made brownies. YUM.

To be totally honest, there are two reasons that kept me from giving sweet E's five stars. First is the pricing...a bit spendy for my wallet, but I'm guessing the overhead for a retail spot on Robertson has got to be killer, plus vegan cooking tends to cost a bit more, so it get it...but, I still don't have to like it. Second was the Red Velvet Cake Pop I tried that left a taste so nasty in my mouth that I had to go brush my teeth. OK, so skip the Red Velvet Cake Pop and proceed directly to the brownies!!!

Other notes: every time I've been there the gals behind the counter have been adorable, nice, and very helpful. AAA+++ customer service.
The place itself is totally cute.
They have treats for dogs! :-)
I went there with non-vegan friends and they really like the Chocolate Covered Oreos and the Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies. Those looked super-good to me...if they ever make vegan versions I'll be all over it in a hot minute.

Fro-yo girl here. While there are other kosher fro-yo places out there, Milky's takes it one step further, offering 14 dairy and 4 kosher parve vegan self-serve fro-yo flavors a day. All their fro-yo and toppings are kosher but some are also parve and vegan. You'll find plenty of toppings that made the kosher cut, including cheesecake bites, cookie dough, coconut, cereal, candy, nuts, sprinkles, cookies, chocolate chips and syrups, but not mochi. Mochi isn't kosher (sad face). The strawberries looked wilted.

Parve/vegan flavors of the day:
* Chocolate
* Peanut butter
* Blackberry: the combination of blackberries with soy milk was odd and I wasn't a fan
* Original: made with organic soy milk, it was quite sweet but had a pleasant, mild tang and tasted like soy milk, smooth texture, icier than the simply tart flavor

And/or we can go to:

Munchies

8859 W Pico Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90035

 


 

I'm told they have 8-9 flavors of vegan soft serve as well as vegan candy.

Walking into Munchies made me feel like a - wait for it - kid in a candy store! (What? I never promised it was worth waiting for.)

Great selection of all sorts of yummy and fun candies, and the prices are actually pretty darn reasonable.

It's a cool candy store by any standards, but it's got that something extra for those of us who happen to be vegan and/or keep kosher. Ask any vegan and they will tell you just how difficult it is to find a good selection of candy that they can eat.

Now, obviously candy isn't something I eat every day (or is it?), but when I was "a little of everything", Munchies is my go-to location.

The candy is great and I LOVE candy shops.  That being said, if you are not Jewish some of the candy may taste off, the gummy bears are not made with real gelatin, so they taste different (maybe you like them, maybe not, they are vegan I guess, but some people may be thrown off by it).

Besides candy, they also have ice cream and frozen yogurt.  AND, there are some great non-dairy options.  I went straight to this section and got non-dairy mint chip with colored sprinkles, which hit the spot.  My pal got non-dairy cookies and cream, also yummy.
