Bread and Coffee

 Breadsmith is an bakery that makes bread in the Old Country style.  They also carry vegan baked goods, which works out wonderfully for my dairy and egg allergic son, and the rising number of vegans in Lakewood.  By the way, they are delicious, and I'm kind of picky about that kind of thing (I'm not vegan).
The Root Cafe is the heart and center of Lakewood, where all the artists, musicians, local community organizers and movers and shakers rub elbows with moms with toddlers, teenagers on wi-fi and Albanians playing dominos.  The former Phoenix Coffeehouse, the Root Cafe expanded last year and opened up a vegan and vegetarian kitchen which serves sandwiches, pizzas, platters and yummy baked goods.  Another place my son can go and have a soy hot chocolate and a vegan muffin.  I regularly visit on Friday mornings to discuss kids, the schools, the community and whatever my friends are knitting.  The renovated vacuum cleaner store has been replaced with beautifully handcrafted furniture and tile made by local artisans.  They have local art on the walls, a heavily stocked bookshelf and game area, and original portraits of Root customers screen painted on the bathroom walls.  I LOVE this place.
