New York! New York.... Part 1

With a young child we weren't sure about having a honeymoon - I mean what do other people do? We wanted to do something really special, and whilst I've been to the USA quite a lot and Mr B is there all the time for work we'd never been to NY and we'd never been together! Small has a fantastic and secure attachment to my parents, she absolutely loves them and vice versa so although I knew I was going to miss her like crazy - I also knew that she would be just find and completely happy with them.
It's taken me a few months to get around to writing this post because we did so much! I think we went to 14 different v*gan places to eat during our stay!
We stayed at the Sanctuary Hotel which was located just off Times Square with a subway station at the end of the street so were really well located to explore the city.
We arrived a bit later than expected due to a delayed flight so we were both pretty tired. We decided on a quick walk through Times Square to hunt out a branch of Moaz.

My only experience of this chain previously is of the one in Soho, London. I'd not been wowed over then but we just needed something quick to eat without having to go too far. The thing is - the Falafel here was really good, so good in fact we went back again later in the week.
After a good nights sleep we decided to jump in feet first and figure out the subway to head over to Brooklyn and check out Dun-Well Doughnuts. 

I've just got to say it outright - I LOVED this place. I think it is almost my favorite place we ate at of the whole trip! Who wouldn't love a 100% vegan doughnut shop?!

I had the doughnut sundae with a coconut doughnut and cookies 'n cream ice cream. It was divine! We also got a box of 12 assorted flavours to take away and eat at our leisure.

Whilst we are on the subject of vegan treats... my other favorite place was Lula's Sweet Apothecary. 
 It's amazing really. If you are in the area you HAVE to visit! 

I had a sundae with graham cracker topping, vegan cream and a cherry on the top! I chose cookies n cream and mint as my ice cream flavours as they are my absolute favorite.

Another 'sweet' place we visited was Babycakes Nyc. I have to say, I was pretty excited about this place as I'd drooled over their books over the past few years. I had a cookie sandwich, and it was pretty good - but you know what? I liked Dunwell and Lula's better.

 More to come in the next installment!
