Welcome to Southern Roots Vegan Bakery – where every bite is a blend of deliciousness and plant-based perfection!
Meet Marcus and Cara Pitts, the dynamic duo who turned a craving for tradition into a crusade for compassionate confection. Born from a sweet mix of Southern flair and vegan care in 2019, this Hub-certified, black, woman-owned bakery whips up nostalgia with a twist, right from the heart of San Antonio.
Our journey commenced from a humble aspiration to provide healthier meal alternatives for Cara's grandmother. The venture took a flavorful turn when inspired by Marcus's plant-based lifestyle, we delved into the world of gourmet vegan donuts—a hit not just within our family, but rapidly garnering love across communities. From sharing our creations with the children's ministry at our church to marking our presence at local farmers' markets, the acceptance and adoration for our offerings spurred us on a path of relentless innovation and delectable exploration.
Flash forward, and you’ll find our plant-based pastries and scoops making a scene in the fanciest of fridges and the coolest of cafes across the country, from the Grand Hyatt Riverwalk to your grandma’s kitchen table. Our aim? To become the synonym for vegan deliciousness in every home, office party, and holiday gathering.
So we've got a little swagger to our step (can you blame us?), having snagged nominations for "Best Vegan Bakery" by VegNews and taking home PETA's "Best Sweet Potato Pie" trophy. Oh, and our Red Velvet cake donuts? They're the belle of the ball, the drama queen of desserts – and totally irresistible.
Here’s the scoop – we’re on a mission to be more than just your random one-night dessert stand. We're here for the long haul, the birthdays, the "just because" days, and even those midnight cravings.
Join us for the ride – it’s going to be sweet, sassy, and oh so flavorful, just like the best Southern stories. And remember, at Southern Roots Vegan Bakery, we're baking up a storm and plotting world domination one donut at a time!
