Vida Bakery: the place where all your vegan dreams come true

100% egg, dairy and gluten free, this allergy friendly cafe has something (delicious!) for everyone!

Vida Bakery began life three years ago as a pop up at markets and festivals, but have just opened their first permanent location on Brick Lane in Shoreditch. Whether you have specific dietary requirements or not, their delicious bakes and coffees are definitely worth a try.

The cosy pink and white decor and vases of flowers dotted around the cafe give it a distinctly homely feel- which is just as well, as this cafe is all about inclusivity! Dani, the owner and co-founder, originally developed her recipes for herself after being disappointed with what was commercially available for coeliacs and vegans. This means that as well as looking lovely, everything here is guaranteed to taste great!

For now their focus is on their cakes and bakes, but in the near future they’re planning to unveil their savouries menu, and I’m already planning my first brunch there! For now, treat yourself to an oat-milk latte and one of their decadent cupcakes, or maybe some of their luscious soy-milk soft serve and (my favourite!) classic Victoria sponge cake. They also do cakes and cupcakes for events, so if baking a six-tier rainbow vegan birthday cake isn’t something you have time for right now, these lovely ladies have got you covered.

Still dreaming about this gorgeous Victoria sponge from @vidabakery 😍 egg free, gluten free and dairy free, but definitely not happiness free! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cake #london #pastries #foodie #foodpics #baker #foodphotography #photographer #artisan #foodblogger #foodblog #londonfoodies #creator #bakery #baking #foodporn #foodgasm #foodlovers #sweet #foodie #foodlover #coffee #coffeelovers #foodwriter #londonfood #vegan #glutenfree #plantbased

Vida Bakery is a friendly and comfortingly non-pretentious haven for well made ‘free-from’ food, and this cute new cafe easily has the potential to become a staple of the local area. And who doesn’t love cake?!
