Charlotte Vegan Desserts


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.

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. 

Boujie Vegan Bakery

In my opinion, Boujie is one of the best vegan dessert options out there. They sell cake slices, cinnamon rolls and cookies at the big Charlotte farmer’s market on the weekend. You can also place orders for full cakes on their website. Highly recommend their cakes. 

PepperBox Doughnuts

Located in Southend and NoDa, the majority of their doughnut offerings are vegan and delicious.

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.


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.

Raw Bites by Risa 

Declicious raw, vegan and gluten free options available for delivery and around Charlotte. Check out the options on her website or Instagram.  

Seemingly Overzealous  

Frozen dessert (ice cream) shop located at Camp North End. They are 100% dairy and egg free, but refrain from using the word vegan. As far as I can tell, everything seems vegan, but they will clearly mark their items with allergens. They use an oat milk base.  

Cocoa’s Cookies 

Vegan cookie pop up around Charlotte. Check their Instagram to keep up with their events. 

Suarez Bakery

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!

Move That Dough Baking Co.

This legendary Charlotte vegan dessert queen has hung up the apron for the time being. Hopefully, she’ll pop up again and offer her treats in the future. 

True Flour

Have not seen them around lately, check their Instagram for future activity.

Sweet IMALDA’s Vegan Bakery

Vegan cakes, cookies, cupcakes, loaves, and muffins. Can order through their website or follow them on Instagram to find where they’ll be next. 

Mason’s Mixer

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.

Golden Cow Creamery

Located in Southend (and Uptown), they typically offer a coconut-based vegan ice cream flavor or two.

Craft Cakes CLT

Located next door to Ma Ma Wok, they leaned in to having a bunch of vegans visiting next door by increasing their vegan options over the years. They offer doughnuts and gelato.
