Washington is a great state to find vegan food in. Peta recognized Seattle as one of the top 10 vegan friendly cities in America because there are so many vegan restaurants and bakeries. It is hard to find vegan options at a lot of places, but there are a lot here. Here's a list of our top 6 places in Washington to find vegan desserts.
Mighty O’s has all kinds of different donuts. Everything here is vegan! Most of their donuts are cake based, but some are yeast raised. They also have mini donuts and bear claws. Our absolute favorite one to get is the maple bar. It’s a raised donut with a maple frosting on it that has a great flavor without being too strong.
You have to go early to get these though since they don’t make a lot of them and they sell out quickly. Our favorite cake donuts are lemon poppy seed and nutty french toast. Mighty O’s has three locations in the Seattle area. They’re located in Green Lake, Ballard, and Capitol Hill. Donuts range from $1.85 to $3.25 depending on how many toppings and what kind of dough base it has. They also have a lot of coffee options.

The Cookie Counter in Seattle is located in the beautiful Green Lake area. All the goodies in this bakery are vegan! They have a lot of ice cream, coffee, and baked goods. The baked items they have change a lot. Our favorites are the brownies, strawberry popsters, and peanut butter cookies. They also have blondies and other cookie flavors. The prices are pretty good ($2-4), but it can definitely add up if you get a few things.

3. Sugar Plum
Sugar Plum is a cute little non-dairy ice cream shop in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. It is owned by Plum Bistro, which is a vegan restaurant close by. Their soft-serve ice creams are so good! They change the flavors frequently, so it is fun to try a lot of different ones. They make it with different non-dairy milks, like almond, soy, oat milk, and more.
Our favorite flavor we’ve ever had was mixed berry with oat milk. We also love the almond milk chocolate flavor. They also have a few baked goods, but those change a lot and aren’t as good as the ice cream. The prices at Sugar Plum are good, it’s about $2-3 for an ice cream cone with sprinkles.

Jodee’s Desserts is known for their vegan cheesecakes. They have so many fun flavors of them, and they also have some other desserts, like cookies and smoothies. Everything here is vegan, gluten free, paleo, and ketogenic. Our favorite dessert we’ve had from here is the Key lime cheesecake.
It has a very strong lime flavor and an extremely smooth, creamy texture. A slice of cheesecake costs $6.95-7.95 depending on the flavor, and smoothies are $7.95-10.95. Jodee’s is on the East side of Green Lake and is within walking distance to the lake.
5. Spotted Cow
Not everything at the Spotted Cow is vegan, but there are a few good vegan options. This is a hip place that serves coffee, baked goods, gelato, and sorbet. Their sorbet is vegan. They usually have about 5 different flavors of sorbet at a time.
You can taste test these to make sure you like the flavors first. Our favorite one so far has been blackberry. It’s not tart like some other blackberry products and it has a very smooth texture. The raspberry is also really good. Spotted Cow is located in the town center in Mill Creek, WA, which is about 30 minutes north of Seattle.
This bakery is located in Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle, which is a huge tourist spot. Not all their baked goods are vegan, but so many of them are. They also have a lot of gluten free options. The line here can be long on a busy day, but it is worth the wait. They have a lot of vegan cookies and muffins, but the best thing they have is the vegan cinnamon rolls. They are really big and have a maple icing on top that is delicious and so flavorful. They are kind of expensive though at $5 each.
