Vegan Cinnamon Buns Montreal

Radha2009 Jul 22, 2013 12:43 PM

Hello fellow vegetarian and Vegan Montrealers,

I have just discovered a new place that makes vegan Cinnamon buns.
I was quite impressed. It was so good.
I really recommend it. They also have few other things and they make also gluten free baked goods.
They just opened. Very cute little shop.

    Her shop is super cute! I was there on Saturday and had a nice long talk with her (because I am a vegan baker as well, hoping to open my own place one day). I ate a scone--which was amaze-balls delicious--and bought a g/f brownie with caramelized hazelnuts for my husband.

    I hope she does well! It's about time Montreal had a vegan bakery! (No, Aux Vivres' pastry cases do not count. I mean, a bakery in the sense that that it is all it is.)

      Is everything gluten free or just certain items?

        Not everything is gluten free. She just opened the shop so they don't have that many options right now but I am sure they will have more things in the future.
        I have a feeling that in case someone places a special order for a GF cake or something she will be able to make it.

        I left her a review on happy cow and hopefully more people will do that so that others can find out about the store.
        Yes I know what you mean by Aux Vivres.
        Not so much a vegan bakery.
        I think it would be good if we had a vegan cupcake place like Vegan cupcakes take over Montreal.
        Good luck. If you open your bakery keep me posted.

          A long time ago I went to a vegan bakery out west and they had this amazing Tofu chocolate cake. The place closed down and no one knew where the baker went so the recipe disappeared with her. Does this place here have tofu chocolate cake by any chance?

            You coud always contact her and ask! She seems to be doing pretty well straight out of the gate. Whilst I was there, a guy came to pick up a 24-count of cupcakes: one for a wedding and another for a BBQ.

              I have not seen such thing there yet.
              I know that Aux Vivres has a vegan chocolate cake. Not sure how it compares to the one you had in the past.
              As Peaches to Poutine said it you can always ask her.
              I look at the cakes she makes and I feel like she can pretty much do anything.
