Pasticceria Ponte delle Paste (Venice, Italy)

We found this tiny bakery when walking around the maze that is Venice looking for some focaccias. A shop window promoted vegan pastries, but it was a bit unclear where the bakery itself was!Β  The entrance was in fact in a different street, but it was easily findable from the other direction. While the advertisement mentioned both sweet and salty pastries (in both vegan and non-vegan variety) it was mostly sweets in the shop. Well, the focaccia would have to wait !

The actual vegan offering was limited: some cookies and packaged muffins. But the cookies looked very good, and I am all for supporting businesses that offer vegan foods. The bakery has a small seating area and also offers coffee. Soy milk is available. (Later I found that this place is mentioned on HappyCow and that they also have other milk alternatives as well)

Soy cappuccino, espresso and two jam cookies

The cookies were very tasty, they had some kind of jam inside. The coffee was not stellar. That might also be due to my standards shifting after drinking many great Italian coffees the last few days πŸ™‚
