Sweet Treats in New York, NY: Vegan Divas Bakery

Posted by on May 8, 2014 in Everything Else | 0 comments

I stopped by Vegan Divas Bakery one spring afternoon to check out their gluten-free and vegan offerings. They had a raspberry cheesecake (which looked yum), chocolate cake, and chocolate-dipped macaroons.  I decided to try the latter two.

The macaroon was good, but not quite what I was hoping for.  The almonds dominated the flavor of this macaroon, which was also a little too dense and tough for my liking. That said it was a perfectly enjoyable cookie and I had no problems polishing it off!

The chocolate cake was lovely, super fudgey, nice and moist and really, really enjoyable.  It had a little chocolate drizzled over top, but could have used a thin layer of ganache or frosting. Although, it was great just on its own.

So the bottom line: if I’m looking for vegan and gluten free treats and I’m already on the Upper East Side, I would visit again. And I would definitely consider picking up their gluten-free offerings from one of the many health food stores across the city that carry them. But because of their pretty limited set of gluten-free options, I wouldn’t make an extra effort to seek them out.
