The well-known vegan bakery has closed up shop at its Markam St. location and has taken over the corner of Bloor and Grace, just across from Christie Station. The new location, which officially opened just last weekend, has already produced many ecstatic customers. “What’s a snack bar? That’s the real beautiful part of this whole thing–it’s basically your vegan junk food dreams come alive. Vegan Corn Dogs… Vegan Doughnuts… Vegan Cheezy Garlic Bread… Buffalo Ranch Salads and Vegan Not-Chicken Caesar Salads.” As anyone who has had anything from Apiecalypse Now knows, they have mastered making vegan food taste rich and delicious, like nothing is missing. Years of experience go into making ingredients from scratch, including vegan cheese, mock-meats, and even garlic dipping sauce! “Our pizzas are done in an authentic pizza oven that never even one time has had meat in it. Also aren’t you tired of omnivores just sprinkling some Daiya on some crust and calling it vegan pizza?” Try pizzas like the White Walker with creamy garlic sauce, soy chicken and arugula,… Read More
