Pattycake bakery is one of the most precious gems of the Columbus vegan community. Their sticky buns (Saturday’s special only) are one of my few but true addictions. Whether I want to impress non-vegans or a hungry hoard of 300 Vegans 4 Independence, it is with Pattycake, because everyone deserves dessert. What makes this place so special even surpasses the decadence of delicious; it is made with true love for the people, the planet and the animals. Everything is 100% vegan (strives for organic and GMO free ingredients, serves gluten-free, soy-free, raw, locally produced kombucha and soy and almond milk), their sweets are delivered locally by bicycle, they have distinguished themselves in the Columbus food market as a worker-owned cooperative and an unstoppable force of awareness to the dire consequences of the horizontal fracturing (aka “fracking”) process running rampant in our region. When your sweet tooth strikes or if you are a restaurant that has no vegan dessert options, meet your new best friend or path to adding a star for socially just options to your menu. Open everyday!
