The entire menu with cheesecake and truffles is vegan, organic, made from fair trade ingredients and gluten-free. Check out the delicious range of mini cheesecakes in creative flavors like triple raspberry cocoa, salted caramel, peanut butter and jelly, and more.

This adorable little bakery and cafe always have a vegan and gluten-free vegan cake option (available in slices) as well as vegan chocolate chip cookies, macarons, and a taste of homemade vegan ice cream, available by pint or scoop!

They also make their own vegan cakes in different flavors and fillings such as chocolate, vanilla or banana, each of which can be filled with triple berry jam, strawberry, peanut butter, lemon or biscuit butter cream. We recommend a visit for macarons and fresh coffee – but go early, the macarons are popular and sometimes sell out!
