Stephanie's Bakery & room with a view (San Diego 3 of 5)

We popped over the bridge to Ocean Beach in search of Stephanie's Bakery. I've been wanting to go since reading about it in VegNews. The "Vegetarian Dining and Shopping in the San Diego Area" guide that I picked up at "All Vegan" describes it as "a mostly vegan bakery cafe." But when I asked the girl behind the counter if something was vegan, she replied, "It's all vegan."





I looked to the left and saw the sign "all vegan" and knew the sky was the limit in here.... save my goal of wanting to look good in my little jeans.


We arrived late in the morning, and they appeared to be out of certain selections. Art chose the last cherry strudel, and I picked the last black forest strudel. We scarfed them on the sidewalk in front where you see the chairs.



From our view, the "powers"
at be were kind, giving us a nice view and also a nice location from a last-minute Craig's list find. The Pacific Ocean can be seen in the background if you look closely past the power pole (which appears much closer than it actually was...) We also could see, from the other side of the building Mission Bay, as well as busy Mission Boulevard below.



This is the view from our bedroom window. A big, bright billboard, which reads "stick head in sand" and "fightglobalwarming.com" obviously intended to pique interest in the issue of global warming to visitors.

The morning fog burned-off each day and the weather was a cool break (in the 70's and 80's) from the summer we have had in Idaho this year.

Happy Anniversary! I love Stephanie's! She has the most amazing strudel! Every time I go, I want to try one of the other items she offers, but always fall back to getting the strudel again lol.

These are such great posts, Vicki! I love the beach pictures, the old wedding pictures, and the picture of you and K again. What an awesome vegan vacation.

Great billboard! I love that environmentalism is catching on and it's now cool to be green. I just hope it's not a trend that passes as quickly as it arrived.

I'm enjoying reading about your trip. It sounds like you had a wonderful time.

Happy belated anniversary! I hope you had a wonderful day.

How nice that you got to see Karin. She hasn't posted in awhile so it's good to see she and Mattie are okay.

Stephanie's is amazing! I had a pizza there when I visited Cali last and it was the best pizza I have ever had! Amazing crust, pesto sauce, yummy vegan cheese, faux pepperoni, onions, artichokes and more. So good!!! Thanks for posting about Stephanie's, glad to see others loved it too!
