One benefit of being vegan used to be not having constant temptation and easy access to unhealthy desserts. Not any more. Vegan treats in Charlotte are becoming much easier to come by. We’re not mad about it. This is a comprehensive list of all the Charlotte vegan desserts.
Sunflour Baking Company
Sunflour offers a vegan chocolate chip brownie, raspberry wheat muffin and banana chocolate chip muffin regularly along with non-dairy milk for your coffee selection. They also occasionally have cupcakes available or you can place an order.
Move That Dough Baking Co.
Popping up at events around Charlotte and weekly drops around town at changing locations on the weekends, Move That Dough serves vegan donuts, cakes, cookies, and more. Currently they can be found at Eastside Local every weekend.
Specializing in vegan rice krispy treats and gluten free brownies, you can find their treats at Pure Pizza, People’s Market, and Eastside Local Eatery. Check their Instagram for their drop spots.
The Sweet Spoon Bakery
Serving up vegan dessert jars for delivery and popping up around Charlotte. This is one of my favorite dessert options around. Can’t go wrong with the Brownie Dream Jar or Cinnamon Craze Jar. Available for Charlotte delivery and nationwide.

Vegan cakes, cookies, cupcakes, loaves, and muffins. Can order through their website or follow them on Instagram to find where they’ll be next.
Based in Concord, NC, Mason’s Mixer bakes and ships fresh cookies nationwide with pickups available around Charlotte.
Bean Vegan Cuisine
They always have the Kitty Cat Cake, cupcakes, cheesecake, old fashioned cake available and then there is most often an additional dessert special.
Normally, a place with just one vegan offering would not be worthy of being mentioned. But when that vegan offering cost just $0.95 and comes in the form of a delicious hand made glazed doughnut, you make an exception. Stop here if you’re near the Park Road Shopping Center or Optimist Hall. They now have multiple vegan options!
Golden Cow Creamery
Located in Southend (and Uptown), they typically offer a coconut-based vegan ice cream flavor or two.

These treats seem to pop up all over town (Hex, Clean Juice, Studio Coffee). Not all vegan, but usually a vegan option.
Seems to be an accidentally, all-vegan gelato shop in Matthews. They have a plethora of flavors and the choices aren’t limited to lousy fruit options. To be fair, their fruit flavors are great too.
First franchise location in North Carolina arrived in Charlotte-land (Indian Trail) March of 2018 with other locations now open in Belmont and Concord. 100% vegan cinnamon rolls, cookie dough and brownies.
