About us top left
My husband, Michael, and I came up with the idea of a vegan bakeshop while we were living in San Francisco. I've always loved to bake bread and one day I thought "SF is famous for sourdough…maybe I'll try making sourdough today" HA, what a joke! Little did I know that one doesn't just "make sourdough"; it requires a completely different process than making other breads, and that one little thought sent me down a deep rabbit hole of research, trial, error, and ultimately some seriously tasty bread.
One day as while I was elbows-deep in dough, my husband said, "It's pretty cool that I can just give you some flour and a little bit of time and you can give me back a loaf of bread." Just like that, the dream of Flour + Time was born.
Atlanta's only vegan Patisserie
My intention with Flour + Time has always been to give people a positive interaction with a plant-based lifestyle. I've been vegan for about 6 years and I can honestly say that it has been a purely positive shift in my life. What we eat connects us to our culture, to our memories, and it seems to be synonymous with who we are, but the good news is that isn't not quite true. It is completely possible to enjoy all the benefits of a vegan lifestyle while still indulging in chocolate chip cookies that remind you of your grandma's house or enjoying a flaky pastry with your coffee on a lazy Sunday morning. My goal is to give the thriving vegan community in Atlanta an offering of treats that they can't get anywhere else, while also showing not-yet-vegans (wink) that making the switch to vegan lifestyle doesn't mean giving up everything they enjoy. It's a win-win!
For the past 4 years, baking for you all has also given me a sense of purpose, for which I am deeply grateful. I am so thrilled to be able to welcome you to our new location in West Midtown! Please do say "hi" when you're in!
