100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Angeline's: Urban Hip with Baked Treats

Urban Hip with Baked Treats.

Whenever I step inside the funky brick-walled bakery and café at Angeline's, I feel like I'm in Seattle, not Sisters, but in a good way. The booths are tucked into cozy corners with cushions and art hanging from every angle. And the service is some of the friendliest I've ever experienced.

It's a great place for a quick grab-and-go espresso and baked treat, but the warm atmosphere and good vibe invites one to stick around and sample their comfort foods.

For lunch I ordered Angeline's Famous Bagel Sandwich ($6 veg/$7 turkey) loaded with veggies and a side of blue chips. They are happy to spread on a layer of either hummus or soy mayonnaise; I opted for the hummus. All of their bagels are egg-free and chewy wonderful. The soup of the day was a creamy broccoli "not cheddar" ($3.50 for a half bowl/$5 for a bowl with cornbread). I've enjoyed their Indian Lentil, part of the regular menu, on previous visits. This time I decided to totally veg out and order the vegan mac 'n' cheese ($5.50), which our waitress told us was a new item created just that weekend. The chopped bell pepper on top was a nice touch.

My gluten-free friend, Christen, came to choose among the many baked goodies on display inside a large showcase under the counter and on top. Many of Angeline's baked treats double as both wheat and dairy-free. She ordered the peach coconut muffin ($2.75) and I had the coffee-infused chocolate cupcake with creamy soy-margarine frosting ($3.50). Certain items, like the chocolate cupcake, are standard menu fare, but other creations have to be grabbed while they're available, such as the strawberry rhubarb muffin and coffee cake that I've snatched while passing through is, sadly, no longer featured.

Nearly everything on the menu is vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free (with a few chicken, turkey, and tuna dishes), otherwise there's Pesto Stromboli, Spinach Mushroom Lasagna, Mommy Mac and Cheese, Quinoa salad, soups and Polenta Pizza.
