If you live a vegan lifestyle, then you'll be happy to know that Rise Above Bakery has landed in St. Catharines, half an hour from Niagara Falls. Over the past little while, they have been creating dishes that are mouthwatering and, to local vegans, nothing short of perfection.
One of the funny things about being a vegan is that you always get people asking you, "What do you actually eat though?!" Well, friends, the answer is good food - just like you do. But the food that vegans eat is mostly local, created with love and most probably way more nutritious than what's on the average person's dinner plate.
And if you're weary of trying vegan for just one day, don't worry. Rise Above Bakery's chef and owner Kyle Paton will have you switching over to veganism the second you walk into the door.
Rise Above Bakery is a quaint little bakery and restaurant that showcases how to eat locally delicious food. All of the products are free from animal cruelty and are made with love and by hand from start to finish.
With everything from fresh cinnamon buns to enchiladas to curry, Paton certainly has outdone himself in creating the perfect bakery and restaurant.
Here, the vegan donuts are a true favorite among many locals. Each of the donuts are created to perfection and with various flavors. They are certainly a fan favorite for any of the tourists who stumble on this lovely little shop.
Whether you want to give veganism a try for lunch or dinner or just want to pop by to see what all the hype is all about, venture off to this local restaurant, and you will fall in love with this way of life.
Oh, and don't forget to grab a vegan cinnamon donut to go. They are the best!
