5 Places To Get Vegan Sweets In San Francisco

San Francisco is the kind of town where you tend to bump into vegan sweets. It's a hey-why-not-try-it and hey-we-love-every-lifestyle kind of place, and chefs will put animal product-free treats on menus at bakeries and high-end restaurants alike. In my experience, as far as cities go, San Francisco is pretty vegan-friendly, and you shouldn't be too scared to wander around, knowing you'll probably find something you can eat.

Still, any vegan knows that can be precious little comfort. There are vegan sweets and then there are good sweets that are vegan. Just because you can eat something doesn't mean you want to. And moreover, it's nice to have some choice. That's why I set out to find restaurants where you will always have a choice of vegan sweets, and where they're known to be delicious, too.

Click through the slideshow to see 5 places that fit the bill. And as a non-vegan I have to say, I couldn't tell the difference.
