Thanksgiving 2011: Where to pick up your dinners and desserts in the S.F. Bay Area! »
This post has all of your Thanksgiving takeout/delivery options! Meave made a list of places you can go out to eat on the big day, so if you’re more of a “have enough strength and patience to leave your bed” person, check out her list. Bay Area Bites also has a great Bay Area vegan Thanksgiving post up, so check that out, too. Also, if you know of any places we missed, please let us know!
Now, let’s eat! Or, at least, prepare to!
Whole Foods has a Thanksgiving vegan meal deal option at all locations! 1) That’s the SADDEST picture, it doesn’t look like that, I don’t know what’s wrong with them. 2) For ordering, figure out your most convenient store, and make it happen, cap’n!
Andronico’s also does a vegan meal deal! It’s really super great, and they’re all going out of business, so you can either support them by ordering the meal, or give ‘em the bird by not. Your call!
Philip Gelb, an Oakland-based vegan chef, says that he’s available for deliveries in the days leading up to Thanksgiving. If you want to hear all about what he’s offering or perhaps work out a special request with him, send an email!
You can, “Pre-order your delicious vegan/non-gmo Tofu Roast for the holidays at any of our markets this weekend!” says Hodo Soy Beanery on Twitter! You can find their market locations on their website.
Now, for the more important part of the day: Desserts!
Berkeley’s Cinnaholic has holiday flavors! Pumpkin spice and eggnog frostings, and toppings like gingersnaps, candy cane pieces, and peppermint “Oreos.”
Oakland-based vegan bakeries Fat Bottom Bakery and Idle Hands Bakery will have special holiday treats! Look for pumpkin cupcakes with vegan cream cheese frosting from the ladies of FBB, and Idle Hands is offering spice cake (gluten-free option available) or pumpkin chocolate chip cake.
Souley Vegan is also doing pies and a $14 SWEET POTATO CHEESECAKE! (See info above for menu and how to order!)
San Francisco’s Mission Pie is doing a $20 apple-cranberry crumb-top pie for pick-up! Must order by Sunday, Nov. 20.
Want to bring some stellar raw treats to the table? Don’t DIY it—unless you’re a pro/glutton for punishment (wrong kind of glutton on Thanksgiving!)—go for the large selection of Cafe Gratitude holiday pies, OR support a smaller local venture that’s equally delicious (if not more so!) and pick up a Side Saddle Kitchen Thanksgiving pies! They’ve got maple pecan, pumpkin, and a chili chocolate torte! SO DELICIOUS.
If you’re last minute-ish, Whole Foods and Rainbow will both have pies up until the day before/of. Get your scrumptious dessert on, Last-Minute Lazy!
