The other day I was walking by a coworker’s desk to ask her a question and noticed she was eating a nice big chocolate chip cookie. Suddenly I had a more important question to ask her. “Where did you get that?!”
She told me about Puree, a new organic cafe in Mt. Pleasant, that offers plenty of vegan and gluten free options for breakfast and lunch, as well as a variety of baked goods. When I saw on their Facebook page that they were having a Grand Opening celebration scheduled for yesterday afternoon, I just had to check it out.
The menu offers food for everyone in the family, from babies to adults. I was a little hesitant to go inside without a baby in my arms, but quickly realized it didn’t matter in the least. I was instantly greeted by the owner’s mother who was so friendly and helpful.
They were offering samples of their Spinach Pies and I wasn’t sure what to expect, but they were delicious!
I had a packed lunch waiting for me at the office, so I had to pass on the wraps and salads. Instead I chose something sweeter to save for after lunch.
The chocolate cupcakes looked tasty, but the chocolate chip cookies that drew me there in the first place were calling my name.
I snagged one for myself and one to bring back to my friend that recommended them to me. The cookies had chopped pecans mixed in as well, which gave them a perfect crunchy contrast to the chewiness.
I can’t wait to go back to try breakfast and lunch!
