Vegan Bakeries Miami: 8 Spots for Cakes & Desserts

Miami’s vegan scene is on the rise, and that includes fabulous vegan and vegan-friendly bakeries that must be added to your itinerary! If this is your first visit to the sunny city, you might be surprised to learn it’s not always been this veggie-friendly.

My first visit was over a decade ago, and at that time, I was just a vegetarian. All I really remember eating was an abundance of chips and salsa and banana pancakes—not much of a culinary affair, even for a vegetarian. Fast-forward many years later — my most recent visit was way more memorable. I found everything from sophisticated fine dining to the cutest cafes with plump cupcakes and chewy cookies.

So, let’s skip to the sweet stuff and get you on your way to a sugar high at one or all of these vegan and vegan-friendly bakeries in Miami!

The Best Vegan Bakeries & Dessert Spots in Miami (that you can visit)

#1 L’Artisane Bakery & Bistro

2526 Ponce de Leon, Coral Gables, FL 33134
If you only have time to visit one spot on this list, it must be L’Artisane! As soon as you walk through the doors of this chic plant-based patisserie, your jaw will drop. Everything from the perfectly glazed pastries to the golden and flaky croissants is downright perfect. When I first walked in and looked at the pastry case, I was in awe and had to ask, “Everything is vegan?” The staff must get that a lot and also be slightly annoyed that I was totally oblivious to their “Fabulous vegan” neon sign on the wall!

Deciding what to order is nearly impossible, so you need to come hungry and with a Tupperware container to take things home with you. I promise you’ll thank me later for that! You’ll find a gorgeous array of expertly crafted pastries, all lined up like little sweet soldiers. For croissant and pastry lovers, you’ll want to try the guava and cream cheese Danish, coconut dulce de leche cruffin, pain au chocolate, and probably a few more things, too! They also have a stellar lineup of creative donuts, cookies, macarons, and gluten-free treats!

#2 The Chocolate Chip Bakery

166 NE 29th St, Miami, FL 33137
Gluten-free friends, if you thought you would miss out in Miami, think again! The Chocolate Chip Bakery is vegan, gluten-free, and Kosher! Aside from having a stellar lineup of treats, this spot is also way too cute — the outside is covered in a hilarious array of little chocolate chip cartoon people enjoying everything from coffee to cookies!

Depending on when you visit, you might find chocolate fudge cupcakes, donuts, sweet bread, and, of course, their classic chocolate chip cookies (you can’t skip one of those)! They also have some stellar savory options that you won’t find anywhere else, like Challah rolls and bagels and pumpkin bread buns — you won’t believe they’re gluten-free! In the morning, they have a delicious breakfast sandwich on one of those pumpkin buns; I give it two thumbs way up!

#3 Courtney’s Cookies

955 Alton Rd, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (Inside Alton Food Hall)
The last time I visited Miami, I just happened to find these delicious vegan and gluten-free ice cream cookie sandwiches at one of the food trucks. Since then, their cookie footprint has grown—yay! You can find these sweet sandwiches at The Alton Food Hall, the Coconut Grove Farmer’s Market, and various local shops and cafes.

The ice cream cookie sandwiches come in fun flavor combinations like strawberry shortcake, coconut cardamom, and blue vanilla magic. If you’d prefer just the cookie, you can get those sans ice cream, along with brownies, and cookie cakes (pre-order only).

#4 Manna Life Food

80 NE 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33132
This isn’t a traditional bakery, but this adorable vegan café has a stellar lineup of sweets to go with its superfood bowls and arepas (you definitely want to try those, too). All of their baked goods are vegan, gluten-free, and packed with so much flavor. You’ll find decadent donuts, cookies, muffins, brownies, blondies, and more. They also have raw bars and balls made with oats, dates, nuts, and more for something a little healthier.

#7 The Salty

Multiple locations throughout Miami
This donut shop is well known for its over-the-top donut creations; although the options for us aren’t lengthy (they usually just have one vegan donut), it’s still delicious and worth the visit. They generally release a seasonal vegan flavor and currently all of their store have a chocolatey vegan Ultimate Oreo Cookie donut — don’t miss it!
