A vegan-friendly bakery

Coffee/Tea/Juice, Grocery/Bakery/Deli

An entirely organic and self-proclaimed bleeding heart liberal bakery featuring numerous vegan items, including cakes, cookies, scones, and even freshly made vegan marshmallows, although many of the items are not marked vegan and you'll just have to ask the employees to show you what is vegan. At least one of their daily soups is also vegan.

They also now serve brunch from 9-3 on Saturday and Sunday.

I've never been able to find/make a good vegan brownie, but this place blew my mind! Their vegan brownies are gluten free and made with BEANS! So incredibly delicious, not dry or bland like other vegan brownies I've had. Also, the decorations are really cute.

Bleeding Heart is a nice little cafe with cool decor and a cozy atmosphere. They have more than a few vegan options by way of baked goods.

I had a triple chocolate cupcake, a "Ginger Rogers" cupcake, and a scone which is supposedly their best-selling item in the whole shop. The cupcakes were 2 for 1, which is a great deal, though I'm not sure when that promotion is valid.

The triple chocolate cupcake was good, though it had a buttery flavor that I didn't like. The Ginger Rogers was much better and had a soft, moist cake bottom and creamy chocolate frosting.

The scone was tasty, though it seemed more like a crumbly pastry filled with nuts and other goodies. It's definitely large enough for two people to share over a few cups of tea.

I like the variety of vegan options here and the atmosphere. The quality is also pretty high.
