Where to Eat in... Providence

Every so often I would like to feature a brief list of places I've found to eat vegan goodies in various locations. Today, Providence. This is list by no means complete (and I welcome any additions, of course).

Two eateries come to mind immediately when I think of Providence - Nice Slice and Wildflour.

Nice Slice
267 Thayer St
Providence, RI 02906

Nice Slice is right in the heart of Brown/RISD territory. This pizza joint has no trouble keeping up with the hipster vibe its surrounded by. A funky interior and friendly tattooed crew give this casual eatery a unique feel. Now down to business. This place is great. They have some of the best vegan pizza around... including a personal favorite: BBQ "chicken" pizza. They have 'regular' pizza for your dairy/meat loving friends. They also serve many gluten-free options. A great place to grab a bite to eat before heading off to WaterFire or the indie movie theater across the street. 

The infamous vegan BBQ chicken pizza!

Next on the hit list of vegan culinary temptations is Wildflour, a spiffy little bakery just outside of the hustle and bustle of downtown Providence in Pawtucket. 

727 East Avenue
Pawtucket, RI

This place is a mind blowing spectrum of entirely vegan delights, from decadent to wholesome. They offer a wide selection of fresh juices and loose teas, as well as lovely coffee drinks and skillfully crafted vegan desserts.

While here, I sampled multiple items (for the benefit of the vegan populace...). This included the green tea and ginger cake and a intense peanut butter cup cupcake. Both could not have been better. I was tempted to take the whole place home with me.
