    I am hosting an event with several vegans and I’m a hopeless baker. any suggestions for the very best vegan desserts in Chicago? I’m on the north side but am willing to travel and it can be any ethnicity.

    Chocolate peanut butter cake at Blind Faith.
    Achatz pies with a double crust from Whole Foods are vegan and pretty decent.
    Pie My Darling Cake from Kalish is pretty good too.
    Jafeer Sweets makes vegan baklava.

    I would avoid Chicago Diner.

    Check out defloured in Andersonville. Many of their baked goods are vegan in addition to gluten free.

    Cookie Bar is a gluten-free bakery that also has vegan items. We used to live around the corner from there and would occasionally stop in for a treat, even though we weren't GF or vegan.

    Hi all-
    Does anyone know of a place to get vegan apple pie without pre-order? Thanks!

    My guess is going to be Whole Foods. I believe someone else posted up thread that the Achatz double crust pies are all vegan (per the Achatz site, it says this as well). However, apple may not be in stock all the time, so you should call to see if the store you plan to visit has them.

    Not, apparently, according to their manufacturer. https://www.delish.com/food-news/news/a ... eos-vegan/

    Hydrox were safe if my memory is correct, and that was vegetarian, not necessarily vegan.
