As I stated in another review last month, once we became settled in Phoenix I got into the habit of not seeking out new vegan options simply out of laziness. However, in the past month I’ve really focused on hitting up new locations. I’m not real sure how I did that with all of my crazy travel adventures but good vegan food will do that to you!
If you haven’t figured it out yet, I have a SERIOUS sweet tooth. I need my sweets! One location I’ve had my eye on for awhile has been Treehouse Bakery. Per their site:
‘We create hand-crafted artisan vegan cupcake, cookies, muffins, pies, and uncheesecakes with all natural and organic ingredients whenever possible. All of our items are completely vegan, egg, and dairy free.’
Unfortunately I’ve never made a point to get down to their location before they closed for the day. However, about a month ago we stopped to have DH’s ears pierced at our favorite location in Phoenix, HTC Piercing, and got to talking about vegan food with our fave piercer Marilyn. She said, “You HAVE to go to Treehouse,’ and went on and on how she loves their delicious treats and how she takes her son to Treehouse on a weekly basis. So, it was about time we made the stop. So we did….the next morning.
Located on Grand Ave in the Arts & Small Business District, Treehouse has taken an old storefront and converted it into their own little bakery. This area of Phoenix has a worn out old-time feel that is really making it’s way through revitalization, which is something I love to see.
We were welcomed with an abundance of tasty treats to choose from. Not only do they have your basic vanilla or chocolate cupcakes, but they always have treats with their own special twist. Margarita, rocky road, chocolate chip, churro, or strawberry champagne cupcakes anyone? The list really is never ending. In addition, they also have freshly baked cookies, coffee cake, donuts, homemade pop tarts, and cinnamon rolls. ALL VEGAN! (P.S. They have gluten-free options too!)
Honestly, it was so hard to choose that I went with several options….and none disappointed.
Something I’ve come to expect and accept is that when you find vegan delicacies chances are you’ll be paying a premium. That’s not the case with Treehouse. I was able to get everything I ordered for the price I’ve paid for one baked good at another one of my favorite vegan locations in Phoenix. Not bashing, just keeping it real.
Sadly, Treehouse Bakery isn’t too close to our home (which may be a good thing!), but I definitely plan to return and would highly recommend anyone stop by. Whether you’re vegan or not, if you have a sweet tooth chances are you’ll love it!
