Chic Spotlight: Ladybug Cafe

Cbus Chic: What is Ladybug Cafe?
Emily Levy, owner and baker at Ladybug Cafe: We are an online, healthful, made-to-order vegan bakery specializing in cookies. Past orders have included birthday cakes, cupcakes, brownies, bars, and muffins. 

Cbus Chic: What’s the inspiration behind it?
Levy: I became vegetarian in 2011 to becoming 100% plant-based in 2012, yet I never lost my love for baking and eating sweet treats! In order to keep up with my sweet tooth, and my love of baking, I was constantly experimenting in the kitchen, and started creating my own original dessert recipes, especially with cookies (personally my favorite dessert!). The more I would share these vegan baked goods with others, the more I would hear they were the best treats people had tried! 

Cbus Chic: Who’s behind the business?
Levy: Me! My name is Emilyjo Levy. The name is inspired by my two (not-s0-baby-anymore) cousins. Their mother (my first cousin) calls her girls “Ladybugs”, and we would always have movie & baking nights together. I named the bakery after them. 

Cbus Chic: When did you open Ladybug Cafe?
Levy: I officially made Ladybug Cafe an LLC in 2016. 

Cbus Chic: What can readers find on your menu?
Levy: Right now we are featuring cookies. Our most popular flavors are Classic Chocolate Chip, Snickerdoodle, Oatmeal Cherry, Gluten-Friendly Peanut Butter, and Gluten-Friendly Chocolate Chip. But we are always open to taking special requests for cupcakes, cakes, bars, etc. 

Cbus Chic: What makes Ladybug Cafe unique?
Levy: We are unique because we are determined to create vegan desserts & cookie recipes that are free of animal products, but also free of chemicals, fillers, highly-processed oils, and preservatives.

Cbus Chic: Is there anything new on the horizon for 2021?
Levy: 2020 was a year of reactivity, which I think we can all relate to, so I have proactiveness our goal in 2021. This means a bit more behind the scenes, making sure we have all items in place should I receive an order at any time (was quite a great end to the year as we completely sold out after our Holiday 2020 Cookie Super Sale!). 

Cbus Chic: Where can readers go to learn more and follow along?
Levy: We love to hang out on Instagram or Facebook and chat through email
