When I heard there was a new vegan bakery opening within walking distance of my workplace I was overjoyed! (Ms Cupcake I love you, but Brixton/Wholefoods is a mission for me!)
I followed Vida Bakery on instagram and liked what I saw they had planned to sell in the bakery.
I popped into the bakery on Cheshire Street (off Brick Lane at the Shoreditch end) at Friday lunchtime and had a lovely chat with one of the owners – Dani.
The space is lovely, there’s a small counter with a long bench table and cool lighting. A bookshelf with loads of vegan & gluten free books and magazines and entire blackboard wall featuring the menu.
Now onto the cakes! There was a wide selection of cupcakes, a chocolate and orange loaf cake, some cookies and some cinnamon buns. I enquired about savoury options but Dani said they had some earlier in the week and they hadn’t sold very well but they may try again.
I bought 4 cupcakes for £10 for my Husband, Brother, Sister-in-law and me as well as a matcha latte.
I went for mocha, double choc (the signature), peanut butter and jelly and salted caramel. I had the double choc and it was delicious the chocolate frosting was really thick like a peanut butter cup but a lot richer. The others all said they really enjoyed theirs too.
I’ll definitely be back for some loaf cake and I’ve already discussed with Dani ordering my birthday cake from them!
If you’re in he area should definitely head down there, if you’ve already been let me know what you thought in the comments.
