Most of the ingredients used at Miss Chickpea’s Cafetal are organic. Everything is vegan and scratch-made, in house or at their bakery across the street. In addition, about half of the menu foods and baked goods offered are Gluten-Free.
From soups, sandwiches, and pupusas, to donuts, croissants, and cookies, and everything in between, is what you’ll find at Miss Chickpea’s Cafetal. Along with your typical bakery offerings, Kolaches are a big hit at this San Antonio cafe. The Czech inspired stuffed breakfast sandwiches are famous in TX, but finding one that is vegan and made with organic ingredients is like finding a needle in a haystack. In addition, Toasters, which is their play on pop tarts, is another unique find, and boy do they look divine. Organic specialty coffees & teas are also served.
What I Ordered
I visited before the bakery expanded into a cafe and therefore only bakery foods were available. I ordered a chocolate croissant, a blackberry filled pastry, and a cinnamon roll. Oh my, what a trifecta!! The savory cinnamon roll was dense, yet moist and not too sweet. The fruit-filled pastry was flaky and light while the blackberry filling was perfectly proportioned ensuring fruit in every bite. Last but not least, the warm croissant was soft and flaky with a gooey rich chocolate filling. Yes, I did eat all 3 of these treats at a single sitting, oink, oink. That was not the plan, but each was too good to put down.
Miss Chickpea’s Cafetal occupies a smaller sized space with a few tables available inside the shop. You’ll experience simple decor and furnishings as well as hometown charm.
Miss Chickpea’s Cafetal is a 100% Vegan bakery cafe. There are quite a few vegan bakeries out there these days, however, few produce such great tasting creations as this. Even fewer use all organic ingredients, and don’t forget the gluten-free choices. Thank you Miss Chickpea’s Cafetal for what you do; vegan and organic baked goods and treats without sacrificing taste. Visit these rockstars in San Antonio, you won’t be disappointed.
