They have a black bean burger that can be made vegan which tastes pretty good but isn't necessarily bursting with flavor. There's a plethora of vegan desserts. They also make salads that can be made vegan. If you're a vegan, then come here for the desserts!

Great desserts

Posted on 07 / 24 / 2012

Southern Sweets is tricky to find, but worth it. Their vegan coconut cake and carrot cake are moist and flavorful. The vegan chocolate items are the smoothest, richest chocolate desserts anywhere.

Pros: Funky atmosphere, Friendly staff
Cons: Pricey

Really Sweet!

My fiance proposed to me over a piece of vegan cake from Southern Sweets. It was a smart move on his part and now we're going to hopefully have our wedding cake from there = ) Their vegan cake isn't over the top but it is actually better than non-vegan cake! So much variety, too!

Pros: Cake is amazing, Great selection
Cons: Not 100% vegetarian

The best vegan dessert I've found

Posted on 07 / 17 / 2010

This place may not be ideal for those who are uncomfortable in non-vegetarian restaurants. There is a long list of meat sandwiches served. Still, the quality and selection of vegan desserts were amazing. There is a dessert case devoted exclusively to vegan cakes (about 6-8 choices), and I found it hard to choose. I went with the raspberry chocolate mousse cake, and was glad I did. It's shocking that a place that's not exclusively vegan can do such a great job; the cake was fresh, light, smooth, and perfect. It had no overly sugary or fatty taste or texture, as some novice attempts at vegan desserts tend to have. I've never had a better vegan dessert in any bakery or restaurant, after fifteen years of being vegan.

For an entree of sorts, the only real option is the hummus and veggie sandwich (called Eat Your Veggies), which good and served on excellent, fresh bread, although for non-vegans there is a veggie cheeseburger.

Pros: Desserts, Eat Your Veggies sandwich, clean and comfortable
Cons: not all-vegetarian, few non-dessert options
