Sans Gluten: Sophia's Bakery & Cafe
Jay and I were in Brantford about a month ago and we stopped in at Sophia's Bakery and Cafe. It is SO CUTE. We had already sampled some of their products when Jay's sister brought them to a BBQ for me, but I like to go and check out places myself. And try one of everything. Ha!
We had sandwiches (it's been a LONG time since I could order an egg salad sandwich in public and it was super exciting). We also ordered a loaf of bread to take home, a couple of cookies, and I couldn't help but grab two kinds of fudge (I think they were maple and pumpkin spice but all I remember clearly was the deliciousness.)
Brantford isn't super close to us, but any time we are in the area visiting friends and family, I am pretty sure it will involve a stop here! The good part was that most gluten free bakeries don't really try to take it to the next level and offer sandwiches (Or pizza and hamburgers, which I see they have added!). OR if the bakery does have food, it usually caters to the vegans (a good thing for them!), too, which means I have major soy troubles for the next few hours.
You are probably wondering about the bread. It was awesome for sandwiches in the store and for the first few days at home, but maybe I am just out of the habit of having a loaf of bread around, because we forgot to finish it and had to chuck the remainder. Sadness! Gluten free bread is so expensive! Those first couple days were glorious, though!
The fudge was definitely the best part for me. I am always afraid to buy it, now, because who knows what contamination is involved and fudge from the grocery store is garbage, everyone knows that... and making it means tons of work plus I eat it all and feel sick. Buying two small pieces? PERFECTION.
