We were sad to learn the Conspire in downtown Phoenix no longer carries vegan donuts and cupcakes. So much for that little bit of happiness. They kindly offered me a vegan breakfast burrito instead…
Since we didn’t have any desert waiting for us at home, we ventured over to Fair Trade Café on 1st Ave and Portland St. to pick up some vegan baked goods to-go.
We ordered our typical “one of each please” and brought home a vegan brownie, chocolate chip cookie and banana nut cookie.
My favorite was the vegan banana nut cookie, which was soft and “almost like grandma’s banana bread.” The vegan brownie was a close second. It was a cake-like brownie and if there were nuts, I didn’t notice. The chocolate chip cookie suffered from being too dry.
For quick vegan eats, they also have homemade hummus on the menu.
