Pattycake Bakery is a vegan bakery on North High Street in Columbus that packs a sweet punch without impacting your body - well they aren't fat free so, a dozen cookies will leave an impact. Most Columbus residents belive a good cookie isn't a cookie without a nice helping of butter, Pattycake is one of the best Columus bakeries to change the staunchest butter fanatic - I'm looking at you Paula Deen.

Vegan? But is it good?

There is a fine balance vegan bakers must strike - goods that are similar to or better than traditional baked goods with animal fats and replicating the same consistency.

Let's face it, we've all tried vegan cookies that were either hard and crumbly or so soft they fall apart ask you pick them up. And what about those dry pieces of sponge impersonating cake? Yelk.

Pattycake leaps far beyond those low bar expectations and surpasses several traditional Columbus bakeries. It's not a good vegan bakery, it's a good bakery period.

Taste Details

Food The chocolate chip cookie has had many reincarnations and is often the cookie by which a baker is tested. Create a good chocolate chip cookie and you've got fans for life. Pattycake has a chocolate chip cookie that is moist, rich and hold up to milk or almond milk dipping. The cookie has big walnut bits that adds just the right amount of crunch and flavor.

The chocolate chip cookie is the gateway drug to the peanut butter cake with chocolate icing. That cake is an addiction. A moist cake that can hold up to a fork is hard to achieve in baking regardless the ingredients. Pattycake's peanut butter cake - with smooth peanut butter taste - a rich, but not oversweet icing is a must have for any event, just be prepared for a feeding frenzy. The shop offers much more by way of goodies incluidng brownies, whoopie pies, muffins, granola, etc.
