Welcome to the Accessible Bakeshop, a blog about wheelchair-accessible bakeries, cafés, and the like. My name is Val, I use a wheelchair, and I’m currently getting my Masters in Medieval History (the coolest subject ever) at the University of Cambridge. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, and have been surrounded by amazing desserts all my life, from the bakeries and coffee shops of NYC to the borderline addictive sweets my mom has baked (and continues to bake while I watch and learn). My friends have listened to my rambles about where to find the best hot chocolate, best pie, best anything really, and most conversations usually end with me saying, “I’ll write you a list.” Those lists turn into rambles, and eventually it just made more sense to put everything on a blog. Expect pictures, rambles, and some recipes from cookbooks and other sources I trust.
Take a look around, and if you like what you read, don’t forget to follow or subscribe!
Hope to give you some excellent recommendations for your time in Cambridge, NYC, and elsewhere!
