Sweet vegan treats

Simply hearing the word dessert is enough to make me stop what I'm doing and sit up and take notice. The decadent, delightful treats of this vegan dessert bakery at Everton Park caught my attention for being both healthy and yummy. And yes, it's vegan! The staff are helpful in explaining the contents of each item.
Veganyumm serves vegan based goodies. Vegan generally excludes meat, eggs, dairy products and other animal-derived ingredients. For many, being vegan is a choice and for others it is a health necessity so a bakery like this is great for people who love sweets and baked goods but are challenged to find ones that meet their dietary needs.

Look at what's on offer The sign on the front door says it all – "OMG there's cake". Stepping inside this unique dessert bakehouse, the glass display cabinet previews the delicious treats that await. With a menu including crispy biscuits (the peanut butter chocolate chip are a favourite and the pecan shortbread are perfect for Christmas), creamy cakes, tarts (like the gluten free, refined sugar free raspberry chocolate mousse tart), and the tempting vegan cinnamon rolls and waffles, Veganyumm is a step apart from the standard bakery crowd.
Whatever you choose can be washed down with a selection of iced teas, Merlo coffee and milkshakes. The double choc chip and Snickers milkshake is an eye catcher.
Outdoor seating area
Where do I find Veganyumm? Veganyumm can be found in a small shopping centre in Everton Park on busy South Pine Road and is easily spotted by the mint green candy stripe on the outside of the shop. A fun cartoon inspired mural on the wall opposite the counter greets guests as they step inside and serves as a background to indoor seating. Outdoor curbside seating, in the bright plastic chairs, adds to the sense of fun. Fortunately, Veganyum is open until 10pm each night – perfect for those pesky late night cravings. The vegan theme continues with Charlie's Raw Squeeze, Everton Park located right next door.
