Planet Bake is a newish bakery that started during the pandemic in 2020. You can get vegan, low-carb, and even sugar-free pastries here.

Right now, Planet Bake does not have a physical location due to covid.

Hi, I’m Petra and for most of my life, I was an omnivore. A vegan couple made me curious about veganism, so I did some research. What I found out about the animals, our planet, and the health benefits of a vegan diet made me go vegan overnight. It’s been 5 years now and it’s been one of the best decisions of my life.
