Anyone who is familiar with this place knows its specialty in fine vegan foods. Parlour specializes in making vegan food DELICIOUS and it is.

With their seasonal selection of flavors, Parlour makes sure never to skimp on flavor despite its lack of sinful components. The "Chocolate Glazed Donut" alone is worth coming for.
