Ten-year veteran baker Amanda Felt prides herself on treats and sandwiches that tickle both vegan and non-vegan taste buds. High demand for Black Sheep's wholesale organic goods at coffee shops and farmers' markets encouraged her to open two stores in the past five years. Items on the menu combine quality ingredients with handily launchable designs. Visitors frequently flock back to devour the peanut-butter and chocolate-chip brownie ($1.75). The muffins ($2) are moist, light, and available in varieties such as maple applesauce and marionberry. A muffin's breakfast marriage to a small cappuccino ($3) builds a white-picket fence around the Tudor of your mind, and the bakery also serves savory lunch dishes all day. Choose your own sandwich adventure ($4 half, $6.50 whole), and you can graze on salad greens for $2 extra. Black Sheep also carries an array of handcrafted vegan chocolates, such as caramel turtles ($6 for box of three) and assorted truffles ($10 for a box of five).
