Frena Bakery And Cafe
We stumbled on this traditional bakery one day and were pleasantly surprised with a wide array of vegan donuts, walking out with a jelly donut, a chocolate donut, a cinnamon donut, a Bavarian creme donut and a Jerusalem Sesame bagel (day made!). Frena Bakery is currently open for takeout and delivery from Postmates.
Hayes Valley Bakeworks
Three words: Mexican. Chocolate. Cookie. This is a sweet pick-me-up to satisfy your craving and keep you pushing on through the day. There are only a few vegan options here, but if you are in the mood for a cookie, this is a great spot. This treat is baked to perfection and has a sweet and spicy kick. Their Vegan Morning Glory Muffin is also popular! Hayes Valley Bakeworks is open for takeout and delivery via DoorDash.
Crafted from a sweet potato base, these donuts even bring all the omnivores to the yard! There are a variety of options, allowing you to choose from the classic donut flavors—cake with chocolate frosting, cinnamon sugar, or chocolate cake donut. Takeout and delivery by Caviar are available.
La Luna Cupcakes
Team red velvet or chocolate? Hand up for red velvet here! It doesn’t matter which team you’re on at La Luna—this modern galleria storefront downtown has both. Whether there’s an office birthday or you just need a midday snack, these cupcakes will not let you down. Thank you La Luna for the vegan options! Postmates and Doordash are options for delivery to your front door or, if you need to get out of the house, choose takeout!
Craving something fudgy and cool? This place has a unique vegan fudge pop that will satisfy your craving for some undeniably creamy and delicious fudge! Order in a few fudge pops for a movie night and freeze some for the next few weeks. They are offering delivery via Uber Eats and also have the option of in-store pickup.
Not all desserts have to be made from chocolate or processed sugar. Sometimes fruit will do the trick! Acai bowls are filling, nutritious, and oh so sweet! A few blocks from the beach, at Judahlicious you almost forget you are in the city. The atmosphere even feels laid-back beachy, and the vegan options are endless! Though you are not able to sit down at the restaurant or order delivery, they do offer takeout as an option!
There is something special about adding chocolate into a chia seed pudding, and Kitava has mastered the craft. They also tossed in some monk fruit and coconut cashew milk for an extra creamy texture. This protein-packed plant-based dessert is the best treat to satisfy your hunger and leaves you feeling healthy, satisfied, and ready for your day. This is the perfect treat to get on the go or delivered to your cozy home.
