Peacefoods is a well-respected vegan restaurant and bakery on the Upper West Side. It's just a block down from Flor De Mayo -- maybe my favorite restaurant in the city -- so I often find myself here for dessert.
On a recent trip I picked up a chocolate chocolate chip cookie in addition to the brownie that I usually get. The cookie honestly was not all that impressive, but the brownie is wonderful. It's a great size -- about two or three bites -- and priced accordingly (less than $2). Plus, if it wasn't obvious, it's vegan.
Bottom Line: I honestly cannot think of a single reason to pass by Peacefoods without stopping in to grab a brownie. I mean, even if you're being chased by the cops, maybe you can lose them by ducking in?
