Lavender lattes. Breakfast pockets. Twinkies. Are you salivating yet? At Mothership Coffee Roasters, your vegan dreams become vegan realities.
This coffee roastery and farm-to-table bakery has garnered quite the reputation in the vegan community for its tasty breakfast treats. While the coffee it roasts takes center stage (and can be found at spots around town), its the food which makes us really swoon.
But first, let’s talk coffee. For you coffee addicts, Mothership has a simple, yet fantastic menu. From drip to cappuccinos and lattes to the popular lavender latte, and the nitrogen brews, the coffee game here is serious. They also have some off-menu items like the flat white and cortadito, as well as a nice selection of teas.
And now let’s talk food.
You’ve got to get there early (read: don’t rock up at 2 p.m. and expect to nosh on vegan stuff, they’ve been devoured already, promise) to enjoy the vegan offerings. We’re not going to lie: the vegan twinkie is our absolute favorite (can you blame us?). Try it with normal vegan cream or with the sweet strawberry insides. They also serve a savory hand pie filled with potato and leek, olives, dill and spices in a puff pastry; a mixed berry pie; vegan and gluten-free banana bread; and a vegan cinnamon roll with mixed berries and topped with a maple syrup glaze.
Are you drooling yet?
Its new location, which opened October 2019, is tucked into the vibrant Fergusons Downtown and features ample seating, plus a wall of windows that open up to the lawn and stage. Bonus: it’s open late to keep you fueled for a night Downtown.
