The only fully vegan bakery shop in Minnesota - Edit

Minnesota has a small (but growing) number of fully vegan businesses, most of them centered around Minneapolis-St. Paul. While there are several vegan bakers that offer their wares in pop-up locations (e.g. Totally Baked Donuts), and there are other restaurants that offer vegan baked goods on their menu, there is only one vegan brick-and-mortar bakery in Minnesota.

The sleepy suburb of White Bear Lake won the vegan lottery when this business opened in the historic downtown area. The location may be a out of the way for many people, but it is worth the trip! I visited on their first day in this location and the line of customers stretched out the door!

I have tried several of the cupcakes and cookies, all amazing. I keep missing the regular cinnamon rolls (they sell out fast) and have only been able to try the gluten free variety. The flavor of the gluten free rolls was nice, but the regular rolls look like they would have a better texture. They also have incredible decorated cakes and cheesecakes. I can personally confirm that the cheesecake is heavenly.

As most vegans should know by now, vegan baked goods look, feel and taste just as good (if not better) than baked goods with eggs and dairy. The quality just depends on the skill of the baker. The experts at Vegan East really know what they are doing, and their desserts are top notch. This is nothing short of a reinvention of how baking is done. Eventually places like this will be the new standard as people learn to accept that great food should be totally plant based.

One last comment: If you can't make the trip out to White Bear Lake, there is a selection of Vegan East items on the menu at J. Selby's in St. Paul. As word spreads about Vegan East, I expect to see their products available in many more locations. Until then, do make the trip to visit this amazing bakery. You will be glad you did!

Pros: Amazing cakes, cupcakes, cookies and cheesecake, Orders can be places online via website, Fully vegan brick-and-mortar bakery

Cons: Location (unless you live near White Bear Lake)

My new favorite cupcakes - Edit

I'm so happy to have found Sheila and her amazing cupcakes! The frosting is like buttercream, and I've enjoyed every flavor I've tried. None of them have been overly sweet or sugary, and they're always moist and fresh. The Peanut Butter Chocolate is probably my favorite - it has just the right blend of peanut butter and chocolate. I would recommend Vegan East to anyone.

Pros: Quality, Customer Service
