Not worth it!

We drove out of our way to this place, only to find a yuppy vibe ,chair seat where proportionate individual only half of my bottom fits on. High priced items. We where extremely surprised the drink menu mostly alcoholic. A small can of soda (6oz)
6.- a can🧐 I must state that I am way past college age so this just isn’t my thing.

So good!

I struggle to find both vegan and gluten-free baked goods, but this place was so good! I had the oatmeal cream pie and it was incredible! My brother (who is very anti-vegan/gf) loved his Cookies and Cream cupcake and was suprised how good it tasted. I also got the Oreo Cheesecake donut and the Brookie which I’m excited to try later.

UPDATE: all the baked goods turned out to be delicious!! I stopped in the St. Petersburg location as well and picked up a Smores cupcake. (P.S. You can get one free baked good with no prior purchase necessary by signing up for their mailing list!!!!)

Gluten free goods

The baked goods I tried were pretty good for being gluten free, and the customized Batman cake was delicious! The design was well-done for such a small cake. I’m definitely a fan of the cake.

Great treats!

Amazing assortment of cupcakes/donuts. A little pricey but great quality and it’s nice to have an option to purchase some treats on special occasions/birthdays. We have ordered online and picked up several times! My parents ordered me a graduation cake which was amazing!

Pros: Great variety , Vegan

Decadent donuts and women-owned!

They offer a wide variety of vegan treats with colorful and unique donut flavors, including Girl Scout cookie versions! The samoa donut was delicious, with chocolate, coconut and caramel. Plus, they're completely gluten-free and women-owned!

Expensive and Poor Service

We stopped to get some donuts. When we walked in the staff acknowledged us, but was not friendly. When we inquired about the options as it was our first time visiting, we received a dry and non descript response.

The donuts were very small and $3 each.

This is a great place if you need allergy friendly vegan food and live a priveleged enough life to be able to afford their sweets.

Pros: Vegan and Gluten Free

Terrible Customer Service

We were so excited to visit this place and were thinking about ordering a cake for our upcoming wedding. Although the cupcakes were wonderful, the customer service was not. Jamie made us feel unwelcome, like we were bothering her. She didn’t greet us with any sort of enthusiasm or offer any information. She never smiled, and she wasn’t even polite. She seemed annoyed when we were asking questions about sizes and flavors. My fiancé and I left feeling really bad about the whole experience. We purchased cupcakes to try, however, and they were excellent. As vegans we were so grateful to have found a bakery such as HaleLife, but I’d rather bake myself then be subjected to this type of rudeness. I wouldn’t mind paying their prices if I felt like they actually cared about their customers and gaining business. We were so disappointed.

Adorable and delicious

Tried about 5 of the donuts there and they were so good! Only complaint is that they frost and decorate the donuts right behind the counter after you order and it’s a huge mess. Would look a lot better if they did that in the back.

Pros: cute, great taste

Cons: messy behind counter
