7 Favorite Spots for Vegan Baked Goods in Metro Phoenix
Thomas Earth Bar & Spa dessert case
We're sweet on baked goods -- particularly when they're vegan. That means no bacon (duh!), but also no eggs or dairy products. Not as rare as they used to be, quality fresh-made vegan treats are still tough to come by in the Valley. So we've compiled a list of our favorite spots to score 'em. You're welcome.
Hahnefeld Pineapple upside down cake and churro cupcakes.
Treehouse Bakery, owned by Corianne Sizemore and Amanda Sizemore, makes a vegan sweet tooth's dreams of cupcakes, pies, cookies, and muffins come true. Treehouse Bakery even makes something called the "uncheesecake," but who could tell the difference? The uncheesecake we tried was as creamy as one made with cheese. Each baked good is made with all-natural and organic ingredients. With options like pineapple upside-down cake and churro cupcakes, who can choose? We suggest you get one of each.
Thomas Samoa bar at Nami.
Nami: tSoft tServe and Coffee
Nami, the sister of Green New American Vegetarian restaurant in Tempe and Phoenix, brings sweet treats to downtown Phoenix. Nami carries a variety of tSoynamis -- mix-ins made with vegan soft serve "ice cream." Options range from the Cookie Party, which contains cookie cereal and organic chocolate, to fruitier tSoynamis like mango, cherry, and mixed berry. Not in the mood for ice cream? The "Girl Scout Samoa" cookie might catch your eye. The coconut/chocolate cookies taste just like the real thing -- but super-sized.
Thomas Chocolate cake with vanilla frosting and chocolate drizzle cupcakes.
Green New American Vegetarian
Green New American Vegetarianfeatures savory foods but also stocks baked goods such as chocolate cupcakes with vanilla frosting and chocolate drizzle, as well as brownies, cookies, and a peanut butter bar.
