As of December 24, 2007, Muddy Paws' has closed their cafe. They are now focusing on their cheesecake business and have moved to St. Louis Park, but there is no cafe.

I have been going to this place on a weekly basis ever since I discovered it in February. They have the best tasting vegan cheesecake ever! I've tried all their flavors and really like the cherry with almond topping or chocolate swirl. Good selections are out daily and the service is very good. I would definitely recommended for vegans who have a sweet tooth like me or anybody who loves cheesecakes. From what I hear, my friends can't taste the difference.

The best cheesecake ever! I wouldn't even try to go anywhere else for cheesecake, b/c it won't beat this place. I've noticed that they usually have between 1-4 kinds of vegan to choose from on any given day. The fruit ones, raspberry swirl, blueberry and cherry are excellent and are available frequently. Other vegan flavors I've seen have included pumpkin, almond, chocolate swirl, and chocolate. The atmosphere is also very nice and it's a great place to go for dessert.

During a recent visit to Minneapolis, we visited Muddy Paws specifically to try the vegan cheesecake after reading about it on Vegguide.org. The apple-cinnamon swirl cheesecake was not only good, but topped most non-vegan cheesecakes I had tried in the past--and before cutting out most dairy, I used to eat a *lot* of cheesecakes. This experience also inspired us to try some vegan cheesecake recipes at home. Highly recommended!

i love vegan cheesecake, and this is the best vegan cheesecake ever, but they almost never have vegan cheesecake with chocolate in it. and if it's not chocolate, it's not worth it.

Trust me, This place just rocks!! The people are so friendly, it's so clean, and I am in love with their Vegan Cheesecakes!! My friends and I go out of our way to stop in for a slice at least once per week. It is so creamy, not dry like others I've tried - you can tell it's made from scratch with good ingredients. I did ask why they only carry two flavors per day and the girl I talked to said if there were more vegan customers they could put more flavors out (otherwise they have too much waste)....SO the more we can all visit them, the more flavors they can put out!! She also told me they offer vegan salads and soups. They have vegan cheesecakes available in dozens of flavors if you want a whole cake for a party or something. I might do a vegan cheesecake party there sometime (they do these there). Everytime I'm at a Humane Society or Compassionate Action function, there are donations there from them too. Just like to spread the word about places like this. Ok, now I'm getting hungry!

My experience was OK here. The people were super friendly, but unfortunately I had only one vegan cheesecake option available (Lemon), and it wasn't *that* great. I hope they decide to carry more vegan options in a given day.

hm! most homemade vegan cheesecakes i've had were better than the slice i tried here--the taste was pretty nice, but it wasn't very firm & for some reason this disturbed me. i actually thought it might not be vegan the first bite i took because it was so creamy. i guess most cheesecakes i've eaten are made with some tofu, whereas this one tasted more like they used exclusively vegan cream cheese. blueberry was what i tried. it would've been great if they'd had more than two vegan cheesecakes out of 40 choices--the only vegan ones they had were cherry or blueberry, which seemed very modest alongside the vast array of wildly adorned inventions like neapolitan and coffee caramel! also it would be nice if they got soy creamer for the coffee. they have quite a coffee menu too.

A great place to get a quick vegan sugar fix. We tried the mango passion fruit and lemon raspberry cheesecakes. Both had excellent tastes and distinctive textures. The lemon raspberry had a lovely creamy texture, while the mango passion fruit had a firm solid texture.

A little richly flavored for a weekly visit, but a great place to stop for special occasions.

This place is amazing! They can make just about anything on the list of over 150 cheese cakes vegan. Even the one's with things like caramel, they will try their best to make vegan if you really want it.

I ordered a hazelnut espresso (I think that was the name) vegan cheesecake. It was one of the best things I've tasted in my life.

They will also do atkins cakes and all kinds of other "specialty" cakes. Yes, it's pricey, but the focus is on great food and customer service. It's worth treating yourself sometime.

The actual cafe is very nice and inviting...As for the cheesecake, it is decent but could be better if minor improvements were made. I had a slice of the "very berry" vegan cheesecake and it was pretty tasty but way too sweet. Although I could probably save money and make an equally delicious homemade cheesecake, this place is a great to take friends and family if you want to impress them with some good vegan cake in a nice atmosphere.

I can't imagine that you could find a better cheesecake in the Twin Cities. I've tried one vegan flavor (I'm not vegan myself, just vegetarian) and it was yummy! In fact next time I go back I'll prob order vegan.

Some friends ordered a vegan chocolate cheesecake as a birthday gift, and it is fantastic. It's not the best dessert I've ever had as a vegan (Millenium's chocolate midnight cake and Counter's chocolate torte are both better) but it's still delicious, and probably the best vegan dessert I've found in the Twin Cities.

When we went to pick it up, they also had a vegan lemon cheesecake available for purchase by the slice, so I'm sure I'll be going to there again in the future.
