Fatto A Mano Organic Bakery was initially a happy accidental discovery for me. My son and I had gone to lunch a few doors up, and met my husband and daughter in the car. My daughter was eating a croissant and said it was vegan. Which of course meant I was like WHERE FROM. Actually that might have come after GIVE ME SOME NEEEOOW CHILD. We were parked right opposite Fatto A Mano, it was a freezing day and the rain was bucketing down but I did my vegan duty and got drenched in pursuit of croissants. Though there were quite a few great vegan options, I ended up buying a peanut butter choc ball along with a croissant and planned to go back as soon as I could. The croissant was lovely toasted at home later on and the peanut butter ball was peanutty chocolately crispy goodness:
On my second visit, I bought more croissants. These are quite nice, not just bread shaped like croissants. There were also chocolate filled croissants and some apple pies (which I was sorely tempted to get):
There was a chocolate cake and this lovely looking pie:
I couldn’t resist another of the crispy lovely peanut butter balls:
I had a great chat with the staff about aquafaba– gotta love spreading the word!
As well as these goods mentioned above, there were also loaves of bread. You can see the display in the front window. I’ll be heading back for those apple pies 😀
