I wish I could give this place 5 stars! The cupcakes have buttercream frosting (my favorite) which is so hard to find vegan! I went on a Sunday, they had vegan cupcakes, chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal cream pies, and brownies. The lady behind the counter said every Friday/Saturday there are more options including donuts, cinnamon rolls, ex. 10/10 would recommend this place!

Went back on a Saturday and they had about 5 different vegan donut flavors! So good! They have vegan donuts on Saturdays 9am-5pm

Amazing options

I would challenge anybody to taste test their vegan cupcakes to check if they are not as good if not better than any non-vegan cupcakes you can find on earth. I got the red velvet and pina colada ones and both were divine. I would have got more stuff but that's all they had at the time; I'll definitely be back there whenever I'm next in that area.

Pros: Delicious cupcakes

Cons: Fri & Sat are best days for max vegan options

one vegan cupcake...

Usually they only have one or two vegan cupcakes at a time, but you can be sure that it’ll be delicious! (more vegan options please!)

But also I love that they offer vegan donut days once a month!
(UPDATE! They now have vegan donut days every Friday and Saturday. This is only limited flavors, but once a month, they will still have the expanded full donut menu with vegan Boston Creme, donut sandwiches, etc).

If you call ahead, they might be able to make the Buckeyes (pictured) for you! And if you place an order, the possibilities are pretty wide open. Follow their Instagram and Facebook to learn more about vegan donut days!

Prefer vegan options

My family and I purchased vegan and vegetarian cupcakes. I only tried the vegan cupcakes but other members of my family ate both. The conclusion was the vegan cupcakes were far better than the vegetarian selection.

Pros: Friendly staff

Cons: Small selection of vegan options

for your vegan sweet tooth

This bakery always has some vegan options. One Sunday a month they do vegan donuts that are almost as good as dunwell donuts in NYC. Plus, as of now, they've been supplying the desserts to 821 cafe
