Kirkwood coffee house goes vegan

Dulce Vegan Bakery and Café is opening in the former Gathering Grounds Coffee House in Kirkwood.

Serving baked goods from a "commercial kitchen for four years," Dulce co-owner Howell Belser said her and business partner Idalys Sansores, are estatic to join the Kirkwood community with their first retail location.

Dulce Vegan Bakery and Café was slated to open in Grant Park at 575 Boulevard, but "the landlord couldn't get us the necessary permit to open there," according to Belser.

The bakery will take the shuttered Kirkwood coffee house at 1994 Hosea L. Williams drive opening by the end of the month, "tentatively the third week in March," Belser told What Now Atlanta.

The bakery and café will offer french press coffee, teas, and espresso as well as seasonally rotating soups, salads and sandwiches, all vegan of course.

Dulce hopes to grow their own herbs and will also serve "gluten free, raw food, low in sugar, and sugar-free options."

What Now Atlanta spoke with Josh Kahn, owner of Aces Bar and Grille next door who wanted to know, "how do you cook baked goods without eggs and butter?"

"There are substitutions for just about everything these days," said Belser.

And for those that the businesses name might deter, Belser said don't worry, "the food doesn't taste vegan."
