Mud Pie Vegan Bakery & Coffeehouse
It took three years for Mud Pie Vegan Bakery & Coffeehouse to go from a concept to a full-fledged baked-goods business. Much of that time was devoted to making sure the all-vegan menu didn't skimp on taste, texture, and style. Today, three years after opening, thousands of Facebook fans attest to the virtue of their patience.
Each day, the Mud Pie bakers whip a variety of baked goods including one or two kinds of cupcakes, choosing from two dozen flavors. Staples such as vanilla, peanut butter, and german chocolate mix with more experimental flavors including french toast, strawberry lemonade, and s'mores. Diners wash down cupcakes and sweet and savory baked goods with mexican hot cocoa, homemade chai, or speciality coffee drinks. Gluten-free versions of many of their products are also available and made daily.
