Raphsodic Co-op Vegan Bakery in Orlando

RaphsodicRaphsodic Cooperative in Orlando,FL is a vegan bakery serving delicious treats that not only satisfy the health conscious but also the pickiest sugar junkie. Located in the eclectic Lake Eola Heights district, Raphsodic is open 11-7 Mon-Thurs and 11-8 Fri and Sat. Katie, the friendly owner, was super helpful explaining all the menu items and the bakeries philosophy. She said that Raphsodic uses organic and local source ingredients wherever possible, have many gluten free options, and try to accommodate anyone with allergies or special diet needs.

First we tried their version of a cinnamon sticky bun as they were just coming out of he oven!  The texture was half way between a typical soft chewy sticky bun and cake. Katie says this is the gluten free version so  the texture is going to be a bit different here. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it, but the “mouth feel” was not what I expected.  The flavor was not too sweet and not too heavy on the cinnamon, just right.  The icing didn’t overpower the bun but gave a welcome boost of sweetness. This gets 4 stars for “Is it Good”.4 stars

I also tried the coconut cupcake.  Lovely moist coconut cake(this specimen wasn’t the gluten free variety) that has coconut blended in the batter. It’s topped with dreamy vanilla vegan buttercream icing and toasted coconut. Tasted as good or better than its best non-vegan counterpart.  4 stars for “Is it Good”.4 stars

The best for last award goes to their homemade whoopie pies. Two delicious cookies of your choice with the most mouth watering sumptuous vegan buttercream frosting in the middle! We used cinnamon cookies for a profoundly yummy combo! 4.5 stars here.

I love Katie’s mission and attention to detail. In the difficult and very competitive restaurant  business it is extremely hard to stick to your principles and I think Katie does a fine job here. For “Is it Good For You” Raphsodic receives 4 hearts.Four Hearts
