Gives a bad name to vegan baking

I truly do not believe they hire professional bakers. There are more bad misses than hits.

Cons: Awful desserts

Pretty Good Pastries

I sampled various pastries and I thought they were pretty good. The apple pie -excellent. The chocolate cupcake - great. The carrot cupcake - pretty good. The chocolate brownie - ok but not what I expected.

Wow! Amazing deserts and togo meals

This place was a very pleasant surprise to find. Came here three times during our week visit to the area. All the desserts are fantastic, can be a bit sweet. Peanut butter brownie was to die for. We picked up meals for the flight home with eggplant parmigiana, lasagna and one other asian dish. Also had a tasty gf bagel!
Best part is the selection of gluten free items in their own display cases and prepared foods on their own shelves.

Awesome vegan cupcakes

I bought a dozen vegan cupcakes of varying flavors from Papa Ganache for a small Christmas party back in 2021. Everyone loved them, especially the carrot cake and rainbow cookie cupcakes! Would go back again! 🥰

Custom Vegan Cakes

Customer service was great! It was freshing to speak to a real person. And I believe she was the owner so I gladly support local businesses. I ordered the Drenched Elvis 6" cake. Cake was delicious and tasted like customized drizzled banana bread. My order was ready on time and the store in Cranford was really quaint. Lots of vegan options so I'm happy I chose this bakery. Will definitely be back!!

Pros: Many vegan dessert options!, Good customer service, Very nice storefront in a great town!

Cons: On the pricey side but you pay for quality!

Delicious baked goods

I've had cakes, cupcakes, and rainbow cookies from here and they've always been fresh and delicious. A little pricey, but I tend to expect this at a small vegan business nowadays. Haven't tried the savory/lunch options, so I can comment on those.

Hard Pass

I spent $50 here on food and desserts and nothing was great. The chocolate chip cookies were ok but they were brittle. I think I just dont like cake pops but they may have tasted normal. The brownie was not good. The Buffalo cauliflower was gross and I also got a chicken potato mayo burrito that was not good at all. Super disappointing.

Cons: Food doesn't taste good

Management disrespects and belittles employees

PLEASE DO NOT SPEND YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY HERE! I have personally witnessed the owner Lisa BULLYING her staff resorting to screaming and belittling on multiple occasions. If you want to support a small business in the vegan and gluten free market, this is NOT the one. Staff is significantly overworked with little breaks and are underpaid at minimum wage. Vegan and gluten free baked goods are hard and taste old. As a gluten free eater myself, I was very excited to see a business like this in my area but after witnessing the unethical and toxic culture of this small business I will NEVER support them again.

Cons: bad tasting food, owner yells at staff
