Dairy-free goodies: Toronto's best vegan bakeries

What was once seen as a fringe lifestyle has officially entered the mainstream, and veganism is here to stay. Toronto’s a city where vegans have no shortage of tasty and savoury dessert options. These 10 bakeries offer healthy vegan dessert options that haven’t lost an ounce of flavour.

Bunner's Bake Shop

3054 Dundas St W, Toronto, ON M6P 1Z7

Arguably the most popular choice in Toronto for vegan desserts, Bunners is a huge hit with vegans and non-vegans alike. Although its cinnamon bun is probably its signature dessert, fans of this place also go nuts for the butterless butter tarts, gluten-free cupcakes and cream-filled cookie sandwiches.

Tori's Bakeshop

2188 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4E 1E6

You come for the vegan pizza rolls, and stay for the creamsicle trio. And when you’re done, you go back for round two: glazed donuts and cinnamon buns, house-made syrups, and soft and flaky croissants. ‘Scuse us for a second – we’ve got some desserts calling our names.

Omg Baked Goodness

1561 Dundas St W, Toronto, ON M6K 1T9

Who says vegans can’t have their own maple pie? The folks at OMG, that’s who. They’ve taken a passion for healthier living and added a dash of sinful goodness, resulting in a bakeshop that has some of the city’s best chocolate cupcakes. Go ahead and have one – or three.

Wanda's Pie In The Sky

287 Augusta Ave, Toronto, ON M5T 2M2

There really is a Wanda at this bakeshop and she’s happy to serve you a slice of fruit pie or a warm cookie. She’s proud to offer a full range of vegan products, and promises if she doesn’t have what you’re looking for, she’ll give you an apple.

Sweets From The Earth

218 Canarctic Dr, North York, ON M3J 2P4

York U students often feel isolated but not when it comes to vegan desserts. This all natural vegan bakeshop, just off-campus, has been around since 2002, using absolutely no eggs or dairy in its products. Its cookies, bars and cupcakes are perfect for the bus ride to school.


873 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON M6G 1M4

There’re always at least eight to 12 vegan desserts to choose from, including the light and fluffy carrot cake, pumpkin tarts and chocolate chip cookies. Everything’s baked fresh daily, so feel free to stock up on your way to work or drop by for a late night snack.

Urban Herbivore

220 Yonge St, Toronto, ON M5B 2H1
