This is a middling vegan bakery/cafe/coffeeshop. I came twice, first for tea and baked goods, and then a second time for brunch.
The first time I had an oatmeal-peanut butter-chocolate chip cookie and a slice of coffee cake. The cookie was dense, crumbly and dry and not particularly satisfying. This place could learn a thing or two from Pattycake Vegan bakery in Columbus, OH which makes cookies which are more moist, soft and delectable. The coffee cake was similarly dry and not flavorful.
Kudos to them for having loose-leaf tea options.
I came for brunch as they usually have an all-you-can-eat buffet for $10, with different choices each weekend. When we got there, they'd switched to an all-you-can-fit on a single plate style for $6. Not a bad deal.
I loaded my plate with tofu scramble, mac and cheese, and biscuits and gravy. They'd run out of a peach cobbler dish already and had no plans of replenishing it. The scramble was okay, the mac and cheese was good, and the biscuits and gravy were not great (the biscuit was too hard and the gravy too salty).
As such, Sweetpea was a mixed experience for me. I like the vibe of this place but I wasn't so impressed with their baked goods (Back to Eden in NE Portland has much better offerings), and their food was only okay on a whole.
