Between Sterling and Saint Johns. 2/3 train to Eastern Parkway Brooklyn Museum.
Natural Blend does not deliver.
Klein's Ice Cream, $2 a cone!
Several flavors of fresh vegan patties (faux-chicken, peas, soy, veggie, faux-fis, etc.), faux-meat entrees, porridge, soups, salads, and a full juice bar. Most of the desserts are not vegan, but a few are. The staff know what's what.
But be careful: despite being listed under a heading for vegetarian dishes, the saltfish is real fish.
Review by Ksisay on May 2, 2010:
- Natural Blend now has many more vegan options, including deserts and a "pasta pie" that is like baked macaroni and cheese. They don't have the latter every day, so call and ask first if they have the vegan pasta pie. (They also sell nonvegan versions.)

- Another awesome vegan-friendly place in my new 'hood! I needed a quick snack and the soy chicken patty in all its orange flaky dough glory delivered! I'll be back soon to get vegan ice cream (Klein's) in a cone (if that cone is vegan, of course). As I exited the shop, I ran into a friend from my old neighborhood who was on his way in. He told me that the coconut bread is formerly vegan. Too bad. Maybe if we bug them enough, they'll veganize it again?!

- After a bad meal down the street I stopped in this place. It is very cute inside but there isn't really any seating except maybe a chair or two along the wall. I noticed vegan sandwiches, though these semmed to be straight from yves wrapping. There were hot food options that sounded great, but I instead focused on the baked goods. I had a really great, not too sweet piece of zucchini bread with cranberries, rasins, and walnuts. I was told most of their breads on the top shelf except the coconut are vegan. If in the area I will stop by again and hope to try the hot food next time.
