      This place is super wonderful and lovely. The woman running it and her staff are so kind and helpful (and all vegan, I think!).

      I come here often enough for a quick morning snack before work. This week I had the orange ginger fritter and it blew my mind with flavours and sensations.

      This place is a safe-haven for anyone who is vegan and/or has allergies to gluten or nuts! I can’t believe how amazing and flavourful they make everything taste! I bring everyone who visits me here, and they fall in love 🙂

      Strawberry Blonde has the best vegan soft serve ice cream around town!! No doubt!

      (Sometimes the machine is broken, but there’s plenty of other tasty vegan treats too!)

      A perfect place to pickup a vegan birthday cake. My favourite item is their sin-a-mon buns which is always a must for potlucks and special events.

      Can’t believe I’ve lived in Ottawa for 10 years and only discovered Strawberry Blonde this week! I had the pulled jackfruit “pork” in a savoury pastry, followed by a nanaimo bar for dessert! 10/10 😀

      Amazing that everything here is gluten-free and nut-free too, even if I don’t need it!

      Woahhhhhhhhh! That’s all I can say!

      Discovered this place on Ethical Tree and I can’t believe it was missing from my life for so long before that! They even have vegan soft-serve ice cream!!! (ok maybe getting a bit too cold out for that now though)

      They often have Groupons for delicious cupcakes 😀

      My best friend is vegan and has nut allergies, so needless to say this place was heaven to discover – especially for him, but it also made it easier to find him bday cakes! Had the carrot cake from here for Easter and loved it, too.

      Just saw that it’s “woman-owned” on the ethicaltree page – all the more reason to support them with my business!!

      Not sure if they use any Fair Trade ingredients, but that’d be great too. I’ll check next time I’m in.

      I am IN LOVE with this place. Just walking in, it smells of free bread and baked goods. There’s such an abundance of vegan baked goods here and they even have this tofu scramble pastry there now. I would recommend the sticky cinnamon buns here. Everything is nut and gluten free here too, perfect for those who may have allergies.
