Looking for vegan bakeries/good vegan dessert in Montreal?

Someone recently told me about ShiShi Desserts, but besides that, are there any good vegan bakeries in Montreal? Or restaurants/cafes that sell desserts (preferably ones that you can order and leave with)?

    I know that Juicy Lotus in NDG does have some vegan desserts you can order and leave with (a friend of mine brought a not too bad slice of chocolate cherry cake), but other than that, I can't think of many places. Aux Vivres and Crudessence offer vegan desserts, but I don't know if you can get them to go. I especially can't think of any strictly vegan bakeries, which is a pity.

      Thanks for the reply. I've been told you can actually get dessert-to-go at Aux Vivres, but I've never been there myself.

        Yes, you can. There's a whole takeout side of the restaurant, with a row of desserts. I like their chocolate-banana pie.

      Cafe Myriade sells excellent vegan muffins (which I believe are made for them) - I'm sure you could buy a bunch for takeout if you wanted. (I am a committed carnivore, but really love these muffins...especially the coconut apricot one)
      In St Henri, Caffe Mariani sells some vegan desserts, definitely take-out friendly.

        There is a newish place on St. Laurent (between Rachel and Duluth) called Viva Granola Vegan Store. It sells freshly baked goods, including donuts, bars and scones.

        Downtown, La Panthère Verte on Mackay has great cookies and muffins. Next door, Crudessence offers slices of cake (pricey but very rich) that can be taken away.

        I've tried the muffins at Myriade - I wouldn't call them good, but they'll do in a pinch.
