Detroit Gets Its First Black-Owned Vegan Bakery

This bake shop will specialize in all-vegan pastries and desserts with a Southern flair.

This October, Detroit gets its first Black-owned vegan bakery—Estella’s Vegan Dessert Boutique. The founder, Chantele Jones, named the bakery in honor of her grandmother Estella, who taught Jones how to make her first pie.

“I come from a family of cooks, my grandma Estella is who started me cooking in the kitchen at six years old and my mother is who taught me how to make my first pound cake. I named my business after my grandma to share that cooking isn’t just what I do, it’s who I am. Opening Estella’s Vegan Dessert Boutique means so much to me because it pays tribute to my family and shares the story of where I come from,” Jones told VegOut.

Southern Sweets with a Plant-Based Twist

Estella’s Vegan Dessert Boutique will feature Southern sweets with a plant-based twist, such as pound cake, sweet potato pie, peach cobbler, banana pudding, and pecan pie. The bakery also plans to support small farms by serving seasonal items like cranberry orange muffins, sweet potato pecan pie muffins, cider donuts, and oatmeal blueberry bars.

Estella’s Vegan Cuisine Catering and Group Cooking Classes

Jones has always had a passion for baking, and has a degree in culinary arts. She began following a vegan diet when she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and found that eating plant-based helped to reduce many of the symptoms she was having. After experiencing the health benefits of a vegan lifestyle, Jones made it her mission to educate the community on the benefits of plant-based meals through her business Estella’s Vegan Cuisine, which offers catering and group cooking classes, as well as plant-based pop-ups.

In addition, Estella’s Vegan Cuisine and Desserts features local delivery and nationwide shipping, where guests can order breads, pound cakes in red velvet, lemon, turtle, and carrot varieties, muffins, and cookies by the dozen, as well as Jones’s cookbook, Our Vegan Family Favorites Cookbook.

Estella’s Vegan Dessert Boutique is located in the historical Grandmont-Rosedale neighborhood at 19120 Grand River Ave, Detroit, MI 48223 and is set to debut this fall. For all of the latest details on the opening, check out @estellas_cuisine on Instagram or visit estellascuisine.com.
