Best Vegan Bakeries in Jersey City

Bakeries to Satisfy Dietary Restrictions 

Finding yummy treats that meet dietary restrictions can prove to be very challenging, especially when so many restaurants and cafes outsource much of their dessert menu to third party bakeries. I have tried, tested and thoroughly researched Jersey City and beyond to come up with this list, a tough prospect I know! This list is by no means comprehensive, as it seems there are so many home businesses (particularly of the cake making variety), that I have yet to discover. However, this should give you a good start. I have come up with a list of Best Vegan Bakeries in Jersey City.
