5 Gracias Madre
Gracias Madre is the off-the-beaten path place for divine and healthy desserts. Being that it is an unassuming vegan establishment, one would not assume that desserts could compete with traditional "non-vegan" desserts.
But have no fear! The "cheesecake" is one of the shining stars on the menu, and the best part: no added sugar.
Gracias Madre is perfect place for the health-conscious dessert lover.
