A Homecoming for Compassionate Dining

Choosing Pasadena as the flagship location is more than a strategic decision. Ardestani shared, “Choosing Pasadena, my beloved hometown, as our flagship location was a decision rooted in deep personal connection. The picturesque beauty, rich history, and diverse community are not only close to my heart, but also resonate with our commitment to inclusive and sustainable dining. Pasadena’s vibrant spirit, eco-conscious mindset, and unwavering support for local businesses makes it the perfect place to showcase our kitchen—where flavor meets compassion—proving that indulgence and healthy choices can harmoniously coexist on your plate.”

A Culinary Heaven for All Tastes

Yvonne’s Vegan Kitchen boasts a stellar lineup of plant-based and gluten-free treats, including cakes, cupcakes, pies, cookies, donuts, brownies, “goatless” cheeses, and superfood crackers. These delectable offerings, along with charcuterie and dessert platters, will be crafted daily at the Old Pasadena flagship. In-store exclusives promise morning pastries like cinnamon rolls, muffins, and scones, as well as savory bites such as vegan meatloaf, buddha bowls, chickpea “tuna,” soups, and hummus.
