Zucchini Kill Bakery
When you imagine vegan baked goods, decadent might not be the first word that springs to mind… but in this case it totally is. Zucchini Kill's punky shop on 53rd Street offers different desserts daily, including Cinnamon Roll Donuts, Vanilla Buttercream Churro Cupcakes, enormous Cookie Cakes, and Chocolate Crunchers topped with salty pretzels. Said baked goods are also made with allergies or food restrictions in mind, and are 100% gluten-free. Look out for their weekend pop-up behind the old Spider House on Fruth Street.
One only needs to look at the Riot grrrl-inspired name to know immediately that this vegan, gluten-free, and soy-free bakery is fueled by female power. Owners and bakers, Cece Loessin and Jessica Freda, not only make plant-powered versions of all your favorites, like chocolate chip cookies, brownies, and coffee cake, but also deliver unique desserts that will make your taste-buds head-bang. We’re talking Roky Moon Waffle Pies, a better-than-a-Moon Pie sandwich of vanilla cream and cake baked waffle-style, as well as Golden Mylk Cupcakes, a sweet treat version of the trendy turmeric latte. In addition, they also offer cookie and brownie mixes for those punk rock enough to take on the kitchen on their own.
How to order: They are only accepting online ordering on their website during their opening hours (Wednesday - Friday 3 - 8 pm; Saturday & Sunday 10 am - 4 pm), and then contactless pickup from their shop or local delivery. They also offer shipping for their products.
