It can be difficult to find delicious vegan pastries in your neighborhood, but Sacramentans look no further—Mud Pie Stand Vegan Bakery is the place to be, not only offering a diverse menu of sweet treats, but a myriad of savory specials as well.
Originally touring Sacramento in a funky blue Volkswagen van, Mud Pie Stand Vegan Bakery—by popular demand—has found its way into a brick-and-mortar location. Located on 14th street, the bakery just had its soft launch in early June and is going strong, presenting a changing variety of both savory lunch options and sweet pastries. Owners Sal and Deanya have backgrounds in the culinary arts and pastry making, respectively, and opened Mud Pie Stand as an homage to Deanya’s mother and the pair’s passion for vegan cooking.
