Boots’ menu changes daily and includes GF and Vegan options created by Owner, Alison Collins based on available produce and will include soups, salads and quiches.
Collins is semi famous in the Spokane community for her amazing vegan baking, especially her vegan carrot cake at Mizuna. The new bakery and lounge is located in the old Rocket Bakery next to the Main Market downtown and the environment is relaxed, comfortable and welcoming. The wood bar and handpainted tables (by Tiffany Patterson’s Art) add a unique touch, the service is friendly and inviting so you feel comfortable just hanging out. It is the perfect environment for your morning coffee, meeting for lunch or casual dinner & a cocktail atmosphere. The entree and salad choices are displayed case style and are very clearly marked if gluten free and/or vegan so no need to worry or ask for details on the preparation if you are vegan or needing to eat gluten free. Many of the daily options are also soy free, but you will need to ask regarding soy as the menu changes daily.
On a recent visit I tried the GF vegan enchilada pie, which was an amazing mix of flavor, yet not too overwhelming – served beautifully on brightly colored plates. Of course I had to try a fresh baked peanut butter chocolate chip cookie too which didn’t disappoint! I will definitely be back (probably often) and find myself wishing I still worked downtown to make dropping in easier!
