This is a lovely little bakery and cafe in a non-veg-friendly area of Queens. Bread A is not all vegan but they have many vegan options, which they have clearly marked. I really liked that they have both traditional Chinese sweets (like red bean and mung bean buns) and Western sweets (like chocolate mousse cake), in addition to pre-made salads, sandwiches, and sides.

I tried both the red bean, which was pretty good if you consider adzuki bean-stuffed dough to be a dessert, and the chocolate mousse cake, which was so-so. The latter wasn't particularly sweet and tasted very healthy, so I'm guessing that this was a healthy and less processed version of the delicious vegan cakes NYC is known for.

Bread A bakery/cafe has a good assortment of refrigerated/frozen, and bulk items to chose from but some of them aren't marked so you'll have to ask the staff. I got two bags of unmarked veggie meat and was told that one is like chicken and one is like beef and that I am to soak them for 15 minutes then boil and season. We'll see how that goes. For about $3.50 a bag, they are much cheaper than veggie meats elsewhere.

I also got this "homemade vegan fish" sort of log that was FANTASTIC! It was clearly made of soy (lots of tofu skins) but I found a few chunks of carrots in it, which were unexpected but good. Its consistency was soft and it crumbled with a fork and it was wrapped in seaweed and tofu skin which held it together. The log/filet thing was $9, which is pretty expensive, but it was fresh and homemade and had a great flavor. I sliced it up and pan fried it with greens, although it'd probably be good microwaved or on a sandwich.
