Sugar & Spice & Everything (Vegan) at ‘SNice
Sometimes vegan cuisine leaves you feeling like you have been eating drywall. Other times “meatless” options taste like just that – food meant to be meat, but missing a key ingredient.
The food at ‘SNice, a vegan delicatessen in Brooklyn’s Park Slope is different – tasty treats that just happen to also be vegan.
There is no shortage of quotation marks on the menu. “Meatball parmesan” subs, sesame “chicken” wraps, and bagels with “cream cheese” describe the dish to the uninitiated, but after one bite you’ll go from Omnivore’s Dilemma to Vegan Evangelist. Follow your meal with a vegan carrot cupcake or a non-dairy malted. While some desserts leave you feeling weighed down or sugar buzzed, ‘SNice offers treats to leave you light and sated, and not wanting to curl up and take a nap under your desk.
It’s a classy joint that knows just how hip and in demand it is. They only take cash and they put up signs on weekends that say “No Laptops Allowed” – though these touches say as much about their desire to build community as their self-aware social status. You might also want to swing by during brunchtime on Sunday – their wicked servers like to deliver a little sass with their tasty tofu scramble!
