Looking for something sweet? Milwaukee has lots of vegan desserts, from cupcakes, cookies, and other bakery to vegan soy ice cream and gelato--you can find it all here.
Babe's Ice Cream - Located in the Bay View neighborhood, Babe's has at least two or three soy ice cream options each day, and now they're also offering vegan ice cream cakes, shakes, and ice cream sandwiches, as well as vegan ice cream sundaes with your choice of toppings (even vegan brownie bits!). Great people--they're always happy to help a vegan out! They are usually open from the end of February through October--check their site for details on hours.
Holey Moley Coffee & Doughnuts - Located in the Third Ward on Milwaukee Street (in the old Milwaukee Cupcake Company location), this unique coffee and doughnut shoppe opened up in the Summer of 2014 offering at least one vegan doughnut option per day and the ability to pre-order vegan doughnuts to show off to your coworkers! Get there early or order ahead because they sell out fast!
Cold Spoons - A cute little place offering a changing rotation of 24 flavors of gelato and sorbetto. All 12 of the sorbettos are vegan, and they sometimes offer one or two gelatos that are soy-based (and vegan).
Honeypie - There is always a selection of vegan desserts here including cupcakes and pies. You'll definitely find something you'll like since they always have a good selection. See the listing under American restaurants as well.
Comet Cafe - They always have some kind of vegan desserts here. My favorites have been the Chai Cupcake or the Pumpkin Spice Cupcake. They are different all the time, but there's always something good.
Beans and Barley - Their bakery always has vegan options and you can special order fantastic vegan cakes. See the additional listing under American restaurants.
East Side Ovens - You can find them at the South Shore Farmer's Market in the summer/fall months or at their location on Saturday mornings.

They now have a retail location in Cudahy.
