Vegan options aren’t exactly vegan

Mushroom sandwich is drowning in oil! Also says Vegan but they put cheese on it. Avocado toast is little avocado and a huge slap of bread, also covered in oil.

Great breakfast!

Avacado toast was large and great. Blueberry muffin was a little dry but was very tasty

Classic and yummy

We had the avocado toast which was delish! Really great flavors and light crunchy bread. The coffee was just ok and the vibe was a little tacky but all around a good option for travelers.

Pros: A few quality options , Friendly staff, Central location

Cons: Not many options , Bad furniture , Bad coffee

Pretty good

The other reviews on here are pretty accurate. They only have a handful of vegan options, like a pizza, avocado toast, cake, and (the day I went) soup. I had the avocado toast, which really was a delicious, gourmet avocado toast, and the soup was okay. The chocolate cake and carrot cake are probably the best vegan cakes I’ve had in Detroit. I do wish they had more nondairy milk options (the only one they have is almond milk) and maybe a vegan sandwich (they do have a vegetarian sandwich but it seems like it would not be easily veganized). All in all, very good food, but you’d think that a place that advertises “vegan desserts” right on their storefront would have a few more options.

Pros: Good atmosphere, Great bread, Delicious cake

Cons: Not that many options, Didn’t love the service

I got the raspberry mocha with oat milk which they said was vegan, the avocado toast, and a vegan blueberry muffin. The food was great, wish everything was more clearly labeled though.

Limited options, but still delicious

For a place that advertises “vegan baked goods” on their awning, they have a surprisingly limited amount of options, and the meal options are even bleaker. That said, the avocado toast and carrot cake are among the best I’ve ever had. Their bread is also phenomenal.

They have avocado toast, one pizza, a side of fingerling potatoes, a blueberry muffin, and preboxed carrot and chocolate cake for vegans. And that's it. The avocado toast was okay. The sourdough was good but ultimately nothing to write home about.

vegan pizza

Glad that I found this place accidentally. There are a few vegan options. I had a vegan pizza. The green topping was a bit too garlicky and salty for me, but the pizza was very good! And, the vegan carrot cake was good, too. A busy place during lunch time, but that was ok.

Vegan Pizza!

Not as many vegan options for dinner as I was expecting, but the vegan pizza is so good - especially the crust which is the best I've ever tasted!

Great vegan pastries and pizza

Stopped by to see what their signs for ”vegan goodies” meant and was really surprised!! Expected the vegan pizza to be tiny and simply cheese for $11... But was pleasantly surprised by the size and variety of veggies on top! The vegan money brand was also a great little treat! Huge fan for anyone looking for a place with decent prices and options for vegans and meat eaters!

Pros: Delicious vegan options , Good location , Reasonably priced

Cons: Parking, Not a ton of options

Wide selection of vegan baked goods and meals

Good variety of vegan meal options, friendly service. Atmosphere is a bit more commercial than the other Avalon in Detroit Midtown, but still good

I ordered the vegan chocolate cake and I was not disappointed!! It was hard to choose which of the vegan baked goods I was going to indulge in!

Pros: Well-marked options, Not overpriced, Delicious
