Even with odd hours, this is a great place! Stop by late evenings Friday and Saturday or early evening on Sunday for plated desserts! Or Sit down Saturday and Sunday mornings for brunch.

All of their items have a gourmet touch, with interesting flavor combinations and beautiful presentation. In addition to a limited (but worthwhile) menu, they have a bakery case full of mostly vegan sweets! Cupcakes, cookies, brownies, and more. They also serve vegan ice cream. All of the ladies who have served me were wonderfully pleasant. I love the Tuff Stuff brunch platter!

The seating area could be repaired and improved a bit, but you won't be thinking about that once the food comes.

The Bearded Lady has an evening sweet kitchen. Thursday, Friday or Saturday you can find delectable treats in downtown Olympia. They serve well into the evening! I love places that are open late! They are cash only, though, which I am bad about remembering. There are usually five or six different dessert options to choose from, including vegan and gluten free options as well as non-vegan stuff. Sometimes they have delicious vegan cupcakes, too. There is usually a sublime vegan cupcake "monthly special," like a cupcake with the volume turned up to 11 and covered in chocolate sauce. YUM. Don't expect boring, dried out, half-assed vegan baked goods. These vegan treats are totally decadent and delicious.

Located conveniently downtown, you can stop by after a meal somewhere else, during an evening stroll, while you're waiting for the band to show up at a Loft on Cherry St. show, before or after a movie at the capital theater.... My friends & I like to meet up for late night dessert parties after we're done with our evening meals and household obligations. I go here at least once a week. Sometimes I go on romantic dates with just my wife. Sometimes we take the kid, who revels in the delicious desserts and almost always tries to lick his plate clean, and sometimes I meet up with a group of friends. The bearded ladies themselves have always been accommodating to us, whether we are a party of two that lingers for hours chatting over a fruity crostini, or if we are a raucous party of eight. This is my fave find in downtown Oly for sweet cruelty-free treats. xoxo
