Vegan Baked - Edit

My girlfriend sponsored a work party with all vegan cupcakes. They are so delicious nobody could tell that they were plant based. ;)

When you want something beyond a plain vegan cupcake - Edit

Pearl's is that place you go when you are having a bad day, or maybe you are celebrating something but don't want to go through the hassle of having to make your own cupcake or getting a sub par, run of the mill, super dense vegan cupcake. Pearl's always offers two vegan cupcakes (they sell out quickly- FYI!) and the flavors are unique and are changed daily. Best of all, it's a real f***ing cupcake!!! None of this super dense or dry or limited flavor nonsense! This place will make you cry because their cupcakes are just that delicious. RUN...don't walk to this place! You can worry about calories later ;)

Pros: Has a variety of vegan flavors that change daily, Their cupcakes taste like actual cupcakes, Very small but cute looking shop

Cons: Only two vegan cupcake options-but good ones!, Nothing both gluten free and vegan, Vegan flavors sell out quickly-need to make more!

Delicious vegan cupcakes! - Edit

They have atleast 2 different vegan cupcake flavors every day including some that are both gluten free and vegan. I was told they also offer some different vegan brunch options on Sunday's, though I haven't tried them yet. I've tried around 8-9 different vegan cupcake flavors from them and have loved all of them. The only one that I was not a huge fan of was their hummingbird cupcake. It tasted more like a vanilla cupcake than a true hummingbird cake, but still moist and delicious. The staff is always friendly and they will take custom vegan cake and donut orders with 24-48 hours notice.

Yummy cupcakes! - Edit

Every time I've been to Pearl's, there has been two vegan cupcakes to choose from and they are yummy! The cake is very moist & frosting creamy. They often have interesting flavors as well such as bourbon, blueberry and banana split. They also have gluten-free cupcakes and baked goods (not vegan, though). If you're in the mood for a yummy treat, look no further than Pearl's cupcake shoppe. Plus, the staff is super nice & you can special order vegan cakes. I would rate a 5 if there were even more vegan options, but cupcake quality is a 5.

Pros: Yummy vegan cupcakes (2 choices), friendly staff, special order vegan cakes

Cons: no gluten-free-vegan options
