Third Coast Bakery Wins National Honors

Third Coast Bakery, a fully licensed commercial bakery, retail storefront and full-service coffee house, has award-winning pies for Thanksgiving that are gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and vegan, so food intolerances, allergies and lifestyle choices won’t limit the party. Every recipe is handcrafted using premium ingredients like gluten-free and allergen-friendly flours, ancient grains, dairy-free milk alternatives, raw and organic sweeteners, pure chocolate, fresh fruits and healthy fats.

            Apple pie is a staple year-round, but especially during the holidays. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals named Third Coast Deep Dish Apple Pie, made from scratch with a blend of Michigan Gala apples, as one of the 10 Best Vegan Pies in America. Owner Heather Burson says it’s an honor to know her apple pies are made with compassion toward animals, and the national recognition puts Third Coast among some of the top bakeries in the nation.
