Dietary restrictions should never equal option restrictions. Thankfully, there are spots all over KC offering a variety of vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free sweetsperfect for our dessert connoisseurs. 🍦

Littlest Bake Shop, 645 E. 59th St., Kansas City, MO | Serving KC as the first entirely gluten-free and vegan bakery in the area — this spot is a must try in our book. Sit on the patio and enjoy the locally + seasonally inspired menu options.

Fairway Creamery, 5938 Mission Rd., Fairway, KS | The fresh ingredients and chef-driven approach make its vegan + dairy-free menu options even sweeter. The sorbet and vegan ice cream flavors are rotating — so you obviously have to go back.

Mud Pie Vegan Bakery and Coffee, 7319 W. 95th St., Overland Park, KS | Stop by on Saturdays + Sundays for the fried (yeast) donuts — we recommend the strawberry glazed.

Pop Culture KC, multiple locations | What’s poppin’? This handcrafted gourmet popcorn, that’s what. This sweet snack comes in dozens of flavors — with vegan, gluten-free, and dye-free options.

The C Word, online order | This cakery is focused on two things: creating plant-based cakes and not taking things too seriously. The business is sweet to the environment, too — down to the compostable packaging.

Planted KC, pop-up locations | Keep your eye out for this 100% vegan option that pops up at local markets + events around KC. From cinnamon rolls to bread loaves, the carb-cravings are real.

Betty Rae’s, multiple locations | You know them, you love them, but did you know they have vegan, dairy-free, and gluten-free options too? The vegan vanilla is a classic.

Florine’s Flour Shop, online order | Whether it’s a special occasion or a regular day, you can’t go wrong with one of these decorative desserts. The vegan cakes are made entirely from scratch — everything from the fillings to the sauces.
