Eating Out: Veganyumm

Earlier this year, Brisbane welcomed our first vegan bakery. Veganyumm opened up in Everton Park (right next to Charlie's Raw Squeeze and Fruit Market) and has been doing a great trade ever since. I've been there a few times! Here's some of the goodies I have tried.

On my first visit, I got one of their fresh cinnamon rolls (no toppings, I love them nekkid) and a peanut butter chocolate chip bar. The bar is my favourite item from there! It is so peanut buttery, and the chocolate quality is good. It does not contain any refined sugar, which means that it is not too sweet. I have had that more than anything else from here! I also got a red velvet latte, but from what I saw it ended up being a hot chocolate with red colouring added.

They make these lovely custard tarts there. These days they make them in big pies, and they cut you a generous slab. Initially they were individual ones in mini pie pans. So when I got one to take away, it kind of got scooped out of the pan and put in a box. So you can see it looks like a total mess. But it was a very yummy mess.

I love peanut butter, but the peanut butter topping on this peanut butter mousse brownie was way too sweet for me.

Here's a fun plate. All gluten free as well, if that tickles your fancy. Some more peanut butter chocolate chip bars, of course. But also a Chocolate and Peanut Butter Mousse Tart and a Neenish Tart. The neenish tart was just pushing my too sweet boundaries. The chocolate PB tart was delicious, though. The PB mousse in that was not too sweet at all, but was a nice and salty peanut butter with a dark chocolate topping.

While the peanut butter mousse brownie was too sweet for me, this delightful nekkid brownie was just right. Not too sweet, nice and rich. I approve! A friend got this for me as a gift, which makes it even nicer.

I love carrot cake, but unforunately the Lemon Cream Cheese Icing on this one was again too sweet for me. I ended up scraping it off, and enjoying the very dense carrot cake on its own.

I've been a couple more times as well, but I have separate posts coming for those times. I need to stay clear of the icing (but this is a me thing, I don't really like icing as I generally find it too sweet), but what is underneath or on its own is really good!

    1. Icing just kind of ruins perfectly good desserts a lot of the time.

  2. I've never had a custard tart, but they look like my kind of dessert. I love pudding! I agree that icing can be a bit much!

  3. The pb chocolate bar! YUM!
    Too bad about the brownie, but I always find ones at bakeries & restaurants always make them too sweet :/
    And gluten free options too?? I rarely come across any place in the area that has vegan and gluten-free options. Wish I lived closer...
    Oh those kittens are completely adorable!
