Vegan desserts can be just as tasty as non-vegan desserts, and I’ve compiled a list of 10 Best Places in Los Angeles To Eat Vegan Desserts:
1. Amara Kitchen
Amara Kitchen is a charming cafe located in the Garvanza area of Highland Park that focuses on organic food, serving vegan breakfast, lunch, dinner, and some desserts. Enjoy indoor and outdoor seating while tucking into dark chocolate cake, buckwheat and chocolate cake, gluten-free rosemary and fig scones, and gluten-free salted chocolate chip cookies.

2. Blue Star Donuts
Blue Star Donuts descended from Portland in the fall of 2015. The donuts are made from a classic brioche recipe, which means the dough is made from scratch every day and takes about 18 hours to do. Along with favorites like the Blueberry Bourbon & Basil, Blue Star also offers a selection of delicious seasonal vegan donuts. Expect options like blueberry tart with classic cranberry bourbon basil glaze, sugar and spice cake, and a mimosa donut, a champagne-infused donut with champagne glaze and orange marmalade.

3. Brite Spot
Echo Park’s Brite Spot has been serving up great food since 1949. In red vinyl booths and along a classic stainless steel counter, diners enjoy American fare like patty melts, burgers, omelettes and pancakes. Brite Spot is also known for its pastry and cookie box, with a number of delicious vegan desserts. There’s a vegan apple pie (available by the slice or whole to go), vegan coconut cupcakes, vegan banana muffins, and vegan gingerbread cookies.

Chaumont Vegan has changed the game for French pastry lovers, with their delectable croissants that rival the ones found in France. Their wide range of pastries including pain suisse, cinnamon roll, zaatar croissant, chocolate almond croissant, orange chocolate croissant, and strawberry croissant are all exceptional. They also offer creative, seasonal items, like their “Proud Vegan” line of flavored butters in truffle, fig, sundried tomato, vanilla, and rose. The menu continues to evolve with new items such as their croque monsieur and pistachio creme croissant. A must-visit spot for pastry enthusiasts!
