With the end of summer and the start of fall semester, students are already feeling the stress of deadlines, group projects and midterm exams. Indulging their sweet tooth at Parlour Vegan Bakery, which opened its second location s in East Boca on Sept. 17, may be the only thing they can do to unwind and allow thier tastebuds to flourish.
With an original branch in Plantation, Parlour vegan bakery is famous for its dunkaroos, frosted toaster pastries and variety of specialized cupcake flavors like butterbeer, passion fruit and guava. Parlour’s specialty options makes it a very different indulgence than the typical run-of-the-mill bakery, featuring an arrary of both sweet and savory snacks, including the bakery’s signature pizza rolls and cheddar scallion rolls, all of which are priced under four dollars.
“The pizza roll is so scrumptious and tastes so delicious with its special dip,” says Jatin Shah, a local Boca resident. “Just warm it a little bit and I am sure you will come back for more.”
With locally roasted panther coffee, made with soy, almond, coconut or macadamia-nut milk, Parlour satisfies all categories of coffee drinkers and gives them the opportunity to pair their drink with decadent cake batter, blueberry or strawberry donuts. Parlour also offers made to order birthday cakes for those preparing for a vegan or non-vegan celebration.
With the addition of the Boca location, which is larger than its Plantation one, Parlour vegan bakery looks to cater to a wide gamut of customers. The bakery satisfies vegans, health enthusiasts and anyone with a craving for light snacks and sweet yet avorful treats.
“We were happy and pleasantly surprised to see the customers lined up already just before our Saturday opening [last month],” said Alyssa, an employee of Boca’s Parlour location.
Those interested in trying Parlour for themselves can visit any of the its locations situated at 1487 S.University Dr. in Plantation and at 415 S. Federal Hwy. in Boca Raton.
