I now get my hair cut within walking distance of Mister Nice Guy's Bakeshop, which is a pretty good guarantee that I'll be stopping by at least once every couple of months. After an icing OD last time, I scaled down (ha!) and sampled three mini cupcakes ($2.50 each) last Thursday. The red velvet didn't make a strong impression, but I loved the sherbetty kick of the key west's lime icing, and the peanut butter cup was perfectly portioned and proportioned, with a deep cocoa cake and buttery sweet icing.
Every time I visit this shop, I overhear at least one (and often two or three) new customer(s) ask ...and what's vegan?. There's always a little guffaw or squeal when they're reassured that everything - yes, really, everything! - is vegan. No wonder the staff are so smiley.
You can read about my previous visits to the Bakeshop here and here. Since then it's received more blog love from veganopoulous and The Good Hearted.

Accessibility: From memory, Mr Nice Guy has a flat entry. There's a wide corridor inside and the display cases are clearly visible and well labelled. Ordering and payment happens at the counter. The toilets are down a slightly narrow and uneven corridor, are gendered, and pretty narrow themselves.
