We all strive to eat healthy. Kale chips, grain bowls, and green smoothies are deliciously satisfying, but let’s face it — sometimes we have to indulge our sweet tooth just a little. That’s what East Austin’s Capital City Bakery is here for. This entirely vegan bakeshop crafts devilishly delicious desserts without an ounce of guilt.
When you smell the delightfully sweet frosting and scrumptious scones, you’ll do a little happy dance. The pastry case inside this bright, cozy shop is filled to the brim with colorful concoctions. You’ll see traditional treats like vanilla confetti and German chocolate cupcakes, but that’s just the beginning. Nostalgic sugar cookies, cherry limeade creations, and mini cheesecakes are eagerly awaiting your hungry taste buds.
The selection changes daily, and the bakers are always whipping up new desserts for you to try. Fitt Tip: follow Capital City Bakery on Instagram to find out when the homemade blueberry pop tarts are back. These breakfast pastries will take you back to those lazy summer days of childhood.
Capital City Bakery also crafts exquisite wedding and birthday cakes. These towering creations are works of art. It might be hard to tear into the pristine beauty — but eventually your sweet tooth will take the reins. The bakers will even let you collaborate on the design and flavors. Cover an orange-flavored cake with champagne frosting and boom! You’ve got yourself a mimosa-flavored centerpiece that’s perfect for your Sunday morning soirée.
Sure, you won’t be escaping the sugar, but you can rest easy knowing that each and every dessert is made without harming animals. Mouthwatering and vegan? That’s cause for a celebration. Each bite oozes with light and fluffy flavor, and it’s positively addicting. Even full-time carnivores swear by these eco-friendly goodies. And don’t worry, gluten-free friends — Cap City can take care of you too.
Just when you thought this place couldn’t possibly get any more perfect, Cap City Bakery proves itself again. This local business has stood tall for eight years. And in this Austin market, we know that’s a impressive feat. You can support this women-owned business by stopping by the shop at 2211 East Cesar Chavez. This whimsical little getaway is open every day from daily from 9am to 7pm.
