I visited City Cakes again on a recent trip to SLC, so I have an update. All of City Cakes is now vegan (I guess they weren’t for a while) and it looked like they had more gluten free items than ever! Exciting! I tried the GF cinnamon roll. I was so excited for it, but it was pretty dry and wasn’t too flavorful. Darn! I won’t be getting that one again. But I got another lemon coconut donut, those things are so good!! Tried another sugar cookie too and was pleased with it.
- Cinnamon Roll (GF)
- Double Chocolate Chip Cookie (GF) quite liked
- Frosted Sugar Cookie (GF) liked
A big part of this girl’s limitless life is traveling! My family is basically all in Salt Lake City, so I visit there a few times a year. On my latest trip I discovered a new spot that seems to be taking the city by storm. It was mostly a bakery, but they also have a lunch type menu that is why it’s …”cakes & cafe”. It’s an all vegan joint and great thing is, they have a large selection of gluten free items.
Their muffins and donuts are being sold at local coffee shops around SLC as well as in Whole Foods Markets. Whole Foods is actually how I found out about City Cakes in the first place, I was wandering around & spotted a donut labeled: local, vegan, gluten free (and soy free!). SCORE!!! That was the first I’d seen one of those. Of course I (posted it on instagram) bought it and was so glad I did. That was a couple months before I wound up inside the store front for City Cakes.
The cashier, Sharon, was a doll and very friendly and helpful. I ended up getting some items that I loved and wouldn’t have ordered on my own (specifically the GF Apple Muffin, soooooo good). Each day they have slightly different items available, so the things pictured aren’t even the things that were there two days later when I went back in. I got some cupcakes for my mom’s birthday, she said they were amazing and she isn’t vegan (so she’s used to having nonvegan desserts).
Last thing I have to say is, I didn’t try anything from here that I didn’t like, or that I felt wasn’t up to par. Below I have listed all of the different things I’ve tasted of theirs and specified which ones I loved & quite liked. ENJOY!!
