Philly's New Vegan Bakery

Philadelphia’s first all-vegan bakery opens today, catering to both vegans and people with food allergies.

Philadelphia's Sweet Freedom Bakery swings open its doors today, offering a place for both vegans and those with food allergies to indulge without worry. In addition to being Philadelphia's only entirely vegan bakeshop, Sweet Freedom Bakery is one of the few bakeries in the country that can also boast a gluten-, soy-, refined sugar-, corn-, peanut-, and wheat-free menu. Despite finding it difficult to narrow the selection, co-owners Allison Lubert and Heather Esposito managed to put together a preliminary menu. Visitors can expect cupcakes, macaroons, cookie sandwiches, and cinnamon sugar loaves among the items gracing window displays when the store opens at 10am.
