The Allens opened Mo’Pweeze Bakery to provide delicious, vegan desserts to those who suffer from food allergies. Every product is free from all common allergens, so there is something for everyone on the menu. Drool over the Apple Cider Donut, or go to the dark side with a Chocolate Sin Mini Bundt Cake. The bakery’s name comes from the Allens’ infant son Maddox. When he first tried one of his parent’s desserts, he said, “Mo’pweeze” (more please)!

6. Southern Roots Bakery

After watching a documentary on veganism, Memphis natives Cara and Marcus Pitts knew it was time to switch to a plant-based diet. Testing out their favourite desserts on their children’s classmates and the local church community, the feedback was resoundingly positive. So Southern Roots Vegan Bakery was born. Made with soy milk, dairy-free butter, and zero eggs, their cakes, brownies, and cookies easily compete with their animal-based counterparts. “I love when people first experience our desserts and you can see the stigma breaking right before your eyes of what they thought vegan food was,” says Cara in an SRB blogpost. Plus, good news for allergy-sufferers, everything is nut-free.
