I’ve mentioned this before, but it can never be said enough: vegan brunch is the best meal of the week. I mean, how can you go wrong with a “late” (the emphasis is a little shout out to all of the parents out there) wake up followed by coffee, breakfast food and often alcoholic beverages before noon…with NO judgement?! Exactly. If brunch is wrong, I don’t want to be right. Which is why every time I go out of town, I search for the best vegan brunch spots I can find….and I think I found the best vegan brunch spot ever created.
I’ve been following Dough Bakery on Instagram for a while now after a friend of mine (Bethany, who will actually be sharing some fun stuff here on Vegan Housewives starting in October) told me I should check them out the next time I was in Atlanta. Judah and I have been up in South Carolina this week and took a trip down to Atlanta to meet up with John and a few family members Saturday. So on our way back to SC Sunday morning, we made a pit stop at Dough Bakery!
It’s located right outside of Downtown Atlanta (just a few minutes from one of my favorite places ever- Little Five Points). The inside is super welcoming and cozy with couches to sit on and they even have little cubbies filled with toys, crayons and paper for the little vegan visitors!
I shit you not, this place is what vegan dreams are made of. Not only do they create some amazing vegan baked goods (including homemade bread) and serve the best brunch on earth, but they are a deli as well! All of their vegan “meats” are made in house and they sell them by the pound!
Since we aren’t in Atlanta too often, I loaded up on their vegan goods and brought them back up to share with my (non-vegan) family in order to share a well-rounded review of this fantastic little establishment! Here’s what we tried:
From top to bottom:
- The All American with country fried “steak”, tofu scramble, home fries, a biscuit, “sausage” gravy & fried pickles.
- Cinnamon Roll
- Breakfast sandwich with “egg”, tempeh bacon, cheddar “cheese” and sausage gravy.
- Jalapeño Cheddar Scone (whaaaat? SO GOOD!)
- Cinnamon Roll Bread Pudding
- Donut Muffin
- Vanilla Cupcake with Coconut Bacon (basically, a pancake and bacon cupcake party in your mouth)
- Pumpkin Brownie
And the verdict? We were all obsessed with everything (clearly, Judah included). Literally, not one complaint here. Even the veg-skeptics fell in love with the food! I will definitely be taking day trips to Atlanta more often just to visit this place!
Has anyone else been to Dough Bakery? What are some of your favorite dishes? Any brunch lovers out there? If so, I’d love to hear about your favorite spots in the comments! I’m always looking to add to my brunch bucket list!
PS: I also drove over to Little Five Points to grab an iced coffee (It was “National Coffee Day”, how could I not?) at Java Vino afterwords and was really impressed! They have Almond and Soy Milk options, vegan Pumpkin Spice as well as vegan treats! I highly suggest that place too! Atlanta has it going on!
