Vegan Kansas City residents now have a spot of their own at the new Mud Pie Vegan Bakery and CoffeeHouse. Longtime vegetarians Michael and Ashley Valverde decided to go vegan a few years ago, and the duo now works together in their new shop, Michael as barista and Ashley as pastry chef. Menu items include decadent pastries such as lemon-poppyseed and banana muffins, cheddar-cheese-and-herb scones, chocolate bundt cakes, and cupcakes. The shop also offers espresso drinks using a wide range of non-dairy milks from soy to cashew.
