Birdbath

Maury’s sustainable/organic bakery concept got a write up in the NYT this weekend, and was picked up by Eater.

We stopped in the First avenue outpost last fall; the automaton sales clerk said there were no plans for anything Gluten-Free in the foreseeable future. Without a vegan goodie option, or a gluten-free cookie in the mix, it feels like a less powerful ethical/organic statement to me. I mean if you’re going to have a cork floor and staff wearing hemp , one vegan cookie couldn’t hurt.

Needless to say, I walked out of the little cork house that could empty handed and unmoved by the great organic effort. It’s a great idea but go all the way Maury.

PS If you've been there recently and this has changed, i.e. they're making GF or vegan cookies, let me know!

Hey there, I haven't been there, but I did notice that City Bakery's carrying vegan cookies now. Maybe it will carry over...

it must be. or perhaps birdbath influenced city bakery. i knew the minute i wrote it, i was probably outdated. how could you have a store like that w/o a vegan cookie?
