absolute favorite bakery in syracuse

I go here every sunday basically for brunch, their donuts are absolutely to die for, and their vegan breakfast sandwich is so good. I always get it on the rosemary focaccia and it makes me want to make focaccia every time

Pros: so many vegan options, best donuts i’ve ever had

Cons: a lil pricy, donuts can be greasy at times

High quality and delicious

I haven't had something yet at The Sweet Praxis that I don't like. Their menu changes somewhat daily and seasonally although there are some items that are on it year-round. Their Avocado Tartine is a particular favorite, and can be made with vegan feta. All of the baked goods are delicious and are clearly marked if they're vegan. The almond croissant is insanely good and the very rare almond "croiffin" is a must try if you happen to be there on a day when they're making that.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Great atmosphere and décor, Very friendly staff

Delicious baked goods in support of local businesses. I occasionally help out on a flower farm and sell bouquets for a woman, and Sweet Praxis buys her edible flowers for their flower shortbread cookies. The only complaint I could possibly have is that it’s on the pricey side, but I never want to complain on price when the business uses sustainable and local practices. I’d get the almond croissant if they have it!

could fool an omni

If I didn't know better, I wouldn't believe their vegan baked goods were vegan. I don't know how they do it!
Donuts (best vegan donut I've ever had and I've been to some of the places everyone says are soooo good), croissants (as good as I remember croissants in Paris!), bagels are now only made on Fridays (Water street bagels moved in around the corner- who serves daiya cream cheese). Just get there early as the best stuff usually sells out fast!
On Earth Day, their entire store was vegan and it was amazing. If more vegans visit, they'll be able to up their vegan offerings more regularly!
It's also a bonus that their staff are super duper friendly!

Definitely the best vegan donut I've ever had. Everyone here is absolutely wonderful and very accommodating to vegetarians and vegans. They also have a couple lunch specials, like weekly soup and an avocado and chickpea open faced sandwich, which they make their OWN bread for. They make custom cakes. They are so pretty! Most ingredients are sourced locally (honey, butter, seasonal fruits, veggies, ect.) They carry Recess coffee, too! Very happy Syracuse has a place like this!

Pros: Lots of vegan pastries, great lighting, clean, com

Cons: Parking..which clearly is out of their control.

It’s so great to have delicious, well-made vegan doughnuts so accessible! And we just learned that the staff here is intentionally all female! So cool!

Pros: Everything is clearly labeled., Great flavors and textures., Helpful, knowledgeable staff.

Cons: Wish there were more vegan food options. , Obviously wish the whole place was vegan. , Downtown street parking
