Barefoot Bakery and Market is a new café and restaurant that recently opened on Sunset Court and Mission Boulevard.

The restaurant features beautiful indoor seating with vibrantly colored walls covered with art. There is also an outdoor patio that encourages guests to soak up some sun while eating a meal. The eatery serves breakfast, lunch, and a wide selection of snacks.

There is a full espresso bar and coffee selection to satisfy patrons seeking a morning or afternoon caffeine buzz. Barefoot offers specialty coffee beverages such as the coconut turmeric infused coffee.

In addition to this, Barefoot offers a wide selection of homemade gluten-free baked goods to accompany its coffee selection such as scones, cookies, donuts, and muffins. Among the most popular pastries are the chocolate hemp donut, the coffeecake filled with strawberry chia jam, and the vegan coconut vanilla ice cream cookie.

The breakfast menu includes creative dishes such as the chunky monkey oatmeal pancakes topped with banana and peanut butter, as well as the sunrise tacos made with black pepper tortillas, cauliflower eggs, salsa fresca, avocados, chile queso, and mushroom bacon.

For lunch, Barefoot has a grab-and-go menu that features turmeric hummus, quinoa salad, cashew Caesar kale salad, among other dishes. Popular lunch entrees include the vegan rainbow Thai bowl served with house-made peanut sauce, bell peppers, broccoli, carrots, and cabbage. Additionally, Barefoot offers a selection of freshly wrapped sushi roles such as the vegan Maki roll with brown rice, carrots, cucumbers, avocado, and marinated tofu.

Also on the menu are tasty pizzas, such as the vegan BBQ mushroom pizza, which is made with homemade dough. Customers are encouraged to wash down meals with a selection of chef-crafted kombuchas.

Head chef Mike Feil has also opened up a sister restaurant next door called Soulshine. Similar to Barefoot, Soulshine offers a wide selection of vegan, organic, gluten-free foods in a comfortable and earthy restaurant environment.

Unlike Barefoot, Soulshine is open until 8 p.m. and offers dinner seven days a week. Soulshine’s menu has a wide selection of plant-based bowls, tacos, burgers, salads and soups.
