In addition to getting back to New York from some work and play, we also headed over to eastern Pennsylvania for an old friend’s wedding that just happened to be one town over from the world-famous Vegan Treats, one of the oldest and best vegan bakeries in the US.
Started in ’98 by the talented baker + confectioner, Danielle Konya, the bakery has long served New York, consistently delivering cakes and sweets to vegan and vegetarian restaurants for years. Danielle’s Peanut Butter Bomb was a mainstay for our east coast birthday parties and responsible for winning over quite a few non-vegan friends to the wonders of vegan sweets.
So it was a pleasure to finally, after so many years, visit the source of our longtime sweet tooth joys this past weekend. Suffice it to say, the joint did not disappoint. I only wish my appetite could match the seemingly limitless, sugary bounty that Vegan Treats provides—curse you stomach!
If you’re in the Lehigh Valley area…or even if you’re not and you’re a fan, we’d definitely recommend a visit. Their brick + mortar’s open 7 days a week, 10AM-9PM Monday – Thursday; 10AM-10PM Friday – Sunday. You can also check Vegan Treats’ locator to see if anyone near you carries Danielle’s cakes, doughnuts, and other offerings.
Below, some of the many, many, many vegan treats of Vegan Treats, including but not limited to their highly recommended powdered raspberry jelly-filled doughnut; the Boston cream doughnut; chocolate-covered and traditional cannolis; gobs or whoopee pies, depending on from where you hail; a ton of nearly too beautiful to eat tiny cakes; and complimentary pins + straight-edge shirting (non-edible).
