Reverie bakes up vegan, gluten-free delights in Richardson

Posted 4:11pm on Friday, Oct. 25, 2013

Even if you’re all about butter and cream in your desserts, there’s much to like about the new Reverie Bakeshop, the totally vegan, part-gluten free bakery that opened in Richardson last month.

The storefront certainly fills a much-needed niche in the Metroplex; and certainly worth the trip if you follow either a vegan or gluten-free diet.

The cute walk-up bakery features a changing menu of seasonal (hello, gluten-free pumpkin cinnamon rolls!) and traditional treats (gluten-free chocolate chip cookies) as well as a few paninis ($6.50-$8.50) one of which we tried for lunch on a visit. The chickpea avocado sandwich was fabulous – and satisfying – with its unusual mix of cucumber, lime, cilantro and an egg-salad substitute.

The friends behind the bakery (Racene Mendoza and Nancy Castillo, previously the head pastry chef at Tu-Lu’s Gluten Free Bakery in Dallas) have clearly struck a delicious chord. At the recent Texas Veggie Fair, their Crimson Swirl bar, a red-velvet brownie with cream-cheese icing, won the event’s Best Dessert award.

With their creative flair (we’re going back for the s’mores cupcakes), the duo is coloring inside the vegan lines quite nicely.
