Grand opening: Vegan Divas bricks & mortar bakery

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the grand opening of Vegan Divas first “bricks and mortar” bakery on the Upper East Side.  We’ve been long-time fans of Vegan Divas rich, high-end vegan baked goods and it was great to see their healthier desserts take off. We first reviewed them back in early 2010 and since then they’ve grown by leaps and bounds.  Their full line of offerings, including brownies, chocolate mousse and macaroons first debuted in Butterfield Market. Now they  can be found in Garden of Eden, Westside Markets and Citarella.

Go vegan and look healthy...

The new bakery will offer the full line of goods from the website as well as soft serve ice cream, fresh juices and new flavors of mousse including passion fruit.

DessertBuzz recommended items from their collection include the Chocolate Brownies, which are as good as any full dairy brownie that I’m aware of.  We also like the newer “Decadent Chocolate layered Cake” which features a superb vegan dark chocolate glacage.  This cake is capable of changing even the most skeptical dessert fan that vegan can be gourmet too!

I didn’t get a chance to try the vegan ice cream as that won’t be ready until next week.

The stars came out for the opening party of Vegan Divas

Vegas Divas will have vegan soft serve too

The new store is located at 1437 First Avenue at 75th Street.  Their website is here.  Their Facebook page is here.  Follow DessertBuzz on Twitter.

    Nicole, let me just start by saying that I rvcieee emails and comments daily, but I have never rvcieeed one that I have taken the time to post on Facebook until I rvcieeed yours (not to worry-I didn’t list your personal information . Let me be transparent with you when I say that I was starting to become a little jaded with writing this series. I just wasn’t feeling as if it was doing what God told me it would do, and therefore I had somehow failed him in my efforts. But God He used you to confirm that He is indeed pleased. I know this because His people are pleased. Thank you for encouraging me and thank you for supporting my work. Stay blessed, because you already are!
