We Vegan Eats is a locally-owned and operated vegan bakery, and its delicious treats can be found all over the region in spots such as Kahwa Coffee, Raw Smoothie Co., 3 Dot Dash, Spaddy’s, Nebraska Mini Mart and Black Radish Grocer. Now, the owner is ready to open a brick-and-mortar spot called We Vegan Cafe at 4326 South Manhattan Avenue.

“Cannot wait to serve you some delicious coffee and amazing baked goods! Thank you all for the ongoing support! Because of all of you we are here,” wrote the owner in an announcement on Instagram. We Vegan Cafe will officially soft open on June 26 from 8am-2pm.

We Vegan Eats brings King State Coffee to its cafe

Visitors will enjoy local roast from King State Coffee, in addition to the plethora of inventive confections from the We Vegan Eats arsenal. A few personal favorites include their transfixing Ube Cookies, the classic chocolate chunk cookies, and the pineapple upside down bundt cakes.

The all vegan concept does offer a few gluten-free items, chief among them are the chocolate brownies artfully topped with sweet icing, and the banana nut chocolate chip muffins.

Sandra, the owner, spent more than 20 years as a legal assistant, and had no designs on owning/operating her own vegan bakery. Back in 2017, she along with her partner opted to go on a full plant-based diet. This new venture set Sandra down the path of crafting her own personal recipes at home.

A concept born out of creativity and experimentation

“After playing with recipes and having family and friends and of course kids taste test our cookie we finally discovered what would be today known as the “Classic Chocolate Chunk” cookie,” wrote the We Vegan Eats owner. “We decided to take our cookie to the public in our very first market in Sarasota, Florida in November of 2017 and the crowd seemed to love it and the rest is history.”

Customers can also order online and have these delicious sweets delivered to their door.
