Great find!

We loved the cinnamon rolls, and my meat-eater husband loved the chili! The broccoli cheese soup was palatable - I'm still getting used to vegan cheese. The space felt like a homey, small-town cafe. I'm glad we got breakfast/lunch here!

All you need in a bakery

Vegan east is the bakery for the cities. Huge list of options and always delicious!

I personally don’t like frosting and there is a LOT on and cakes especially. If you’re like me opt for one of the “naked” cakes.

Pros: All vegan, Multiple locations

Cons: Expensive, Too much frosting

A gem

All the food here is delicious and vegan. Much is local. Consistently high quality. The ambiance is that of a welcoming old home. The staff care and are so welcoming. My favorite place to eat in Minneapolis.

Small menu, but good food

Stopped for a quick breakfast, where they had 3 options (plus lunch items and cinnamon rolls). Biscuits were excellent, the house sausage patty was okay, but a bit dry. Biscuits and gravy were excellent! I'd come again, but probably wouldn't get the breakfast sandwich again.

Cons: Small menu

Great all-vegan bakery and cafe

This Vegan East location has a nice range of cafe items and an excellent set of baked goods. My favorites are the s'mores bar and the lemon loaf. The shop is a homey space that's perfect for relaxing in.

Cozy spot, comfort food

I was visiting from out of town, and I really enjoyed the opportunity to dine in, after so many places had been takeout-only during the pandemic. This place is an unassuming house-like environment with comfortable furniture, creating the ambiance of dining at a friend’s house. I ordered a pastrami sandwich, which uses “meat” from the Herbivorous Butcher. I also had the broccoli cheddar soup. Both were really tasty. One caveat is that I was there when they weren’t very busy, so I can’t really evaluate the service. I was the only person dining in, and the other customers were picking up takeout orders. I didn’t have a car, but I don’t recall seeing ample parking, so that could be an issue for someone traveling by car.

Pros: Excellent food , Cozy ambiance , Good value

Best Pastries I've Ever Tasted

I've tried quite a few different cake flavors and pop tarts and everything is exquisite!

I think the pop tarts taste like donuts, the variety of cake flavors are all delicious, and they even have the Day Old Club, which is such a great and considerate program.

Amazing food, very laid back staff

First off, the food is great. The sandwiches are very tasty, and the desserts are to die for. I've tried 3 or 4 different sandwiches and they have all been great. The staff is very friendly.

The last time we were there, 3 people were working. One order was ahead of us. It still took over 20 minutes to get 2 sandwiches. I'm kinda chill, but I was meeting someone and would have liked a little more speed. So that's more a nitpick than a big problem.

Pros: Amazing food, Friendly staff

Cons: Slow

The best

The best place in the cities for vegan baked goods! Could not recommend enough. I would come here for the desserts over the lunch food, but it is a nice casual spot for sandwiches too.

My Favorite Vegan Lunch Place

I absolutely love Vegan East, they have super delicious lunch food, and awesome baked goods too. Never had anything from here I didn’t enjoy. I have taken omnivorous friends here multiple times and they loved it too. Also my go-to for birthday cakes; even if you don’t order ahead they usually have some ready-made cakes in the store. Can’t recommend enough!

Excellent Vegan Desserts

The menu changes but you're sure to find something to fall in love with here. They have some of the best vegan cheesecakes in the US!

Some of my favs: White chocolate raspberry cheesecake, salted caramel cookies, cakes in a jar, etc.

They serve sandwiches too, but I haven't tried those yet.

Has a decent lunch menu too! Obviously the cupcakes are delicious and they have a new cookie recipe that is super good! Everything is pretty awesome. The carrot cake is so yummy!
