Atlanta – In time for Valentine’s Day, PETA has scoured the country for the Top Vegan Sweet Treats—and Atlanta’s own Dulce Vegan Bakery & Café won a spot on the list for its glazed, gooey, and all-organic cinnamon rolls.
Dulce Vegan Bakery & Café, which is women of color– and queer-owned, also offers savory breakfast sandwiches, elaborate custom cakes, sumptuous scones, and other baked goods.
“Dulce has won PETA’s heart with its fluffy cinnamon rolls—and by making its entire menu vegan,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “It’s never been so easy or so delicious to show some sweetness to gentle hens and mother cows.”
Vegan sweets are sweeter to animals: In the dairy industry, calves are torn away from their mothers shortly after birth, and in the egg industry, parts of chicks’ beaks are cut off with a hot blade when they’re just a few days old. Each person who goes vegan also reduces their risk of suffering from heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and cancer; dramatically shrinks their carbon footprint; and helps prevent future epidemics and pandemics—SARS, swine flu, bird flu, and COVID-19 all stemmed from confining and killing animals for food.
Other winners on PETA’s list include Planty Sweet in Albuquerque, New Mexico; Quincy Bake Shop in Oklahoma City; and Sea Salt & Cinnamon in Muncie, Indiana. Each eatery will receive a framed certificate from PETA, which offers free vegan Valentine’s Day dessert recipes on its website along with a selection of sweet gifts from the PETA Shop.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
