Flora Bakehouse's rooftop deck is an airy getaway
The spot: The patio upstairs, while mostly covered, remains airy and open.
- It's the perfect place to read and think while digging into a slice of vegan coconut cake, which reminds me of the not-at-all vegan coconut cream cake my mom used to make. (Except Flora's is actually better — sorry, mom.)
What to order: I always get a small cappuccino because they make them just right, and their coffee has a nutty flavor that goes well with pastries.
- The menu of both sweet and savory items changes regularly. On my most recent visit, I had a burrata plate with fresh-baked bread; on an earlier visit, I ordered a kimchi grilled cheese sandwich that made me a lifelong fan of the place.
- The chocolate-nut cake I once had — which I believe was gluten free — was so good that I still daydream about it often.
- That particular cake is not on the menu right now, but that’s OK. You’ll find something else to love.
Of note: Flora Bakehouse requires proof of vaccination if you are going to dine in.
