Baking a Difference…
At Capital City Bakery, it’s about more than just cake- Our bakery was built on a love for food, a desire to foster community, and a passion for providing Austin with high quality pastries made from scratch. One little bake shop, a whole lotta love: All of our baked goods are made fresh daily, cholesterol-free, and made from locally-sourced/organic ingredients when possible. We make it our priority to recycle and compost, and our bakery boxes are made from recycled materials. Did we mention that everything is also 100% vegan and completely delicious?
The connection between food, our health, and the world around us is undeniable- We’re dedicated to providing an alternative choice in attempt to preserve the environment, protect animals, and unite people through a love of food and a desire for progression.
Capital City Bakery started out as a home baking business in 2010; Kristen would make cakes on special order for people who were in need of something delicious. The demand grew so large that she decided to open up Austin’s very first all-vegan bakery food trailer and sell vegan baked goods to all of Austin, every day. Capital City Bakery operated successfully out of the food trailer for almost two years, selling out of items on a daily basis. As a result of the community’s continual support, Capital City Bakery opened it’s first storefront location at 2211 E. Cesar Chavez in December of 2012.
Whether you’re searching for something good to eat, celebrating a special occasion, or have dietary restrictions… we would love to create a lasting memory for you. You can find us at 2211 E. Cesar Chavez, in the little teal house- Come out and say hi!
