Although white cub is primarily a vegan ice-cream parlour, one of the first of its kind serving healthy dairy-free ice-creams since 2012 and now available in more than 60 outlets across India, despite their mango moment and blueberry night scoops, their bakery offerings too deserve a mention by us and a try by you! The baked goods are on a made-to-order option on similar lines of nutrition. Who says ‘only junk food eaters can have all the fun’?

If you’re a vegan with a typical Indian palate then there’s no place for you like Vegan Bites, it’s the most well-known bakery service in the city, Samir Pasad and Hemali Gala (Raw Food Chefs) have run this joint for six years and their speciality is the no-bake cheesecake (a crust soaked with dehydrated nuts and a cheese layer compromising of cashews, coconut meat and natural sweeteners like coconut nectar). Their fruit-based cheesecakes come in a myriad of flavours and for the sweet-tooth, they have a palette full of celebration – from moong to peanut ladoos and date cookies to cacao bliss balls – they have their own twist and take on every item on the menu.

A simple desire to replace the unhealthy with the healthy led the Naturopath Divya Ranglani to introduce Healthy Treats right after she completed a formal course in baking and now she offers an indulging experience with baked vegan cakes made from all natural ingredients instead of refined elements – sugar and refined flour, she uses fruits or natural sweeteners and whole wheat flour with oats. If in town you should definitely try their Vegan Orange & Dark Chocolate Cake, it’s probably the only cake that can refresh your palate. Try it.
