Lazy Cow Bakery is a plant-based bakery located in Seattle's Fremont neighborhood. Our mission is to bring joy through our pastries and cakes while placing emphasis on a socialist production model.
We care about the fair treatment of all workers and their right to be treated with dignity and respect. Part of this ethical framework means that our workers get part ownership of the bakery and to make decisions about their wages and work hours. Lazy Cow Bakery has an associated social justice organization, La Casa Del Xoloitzcuintle. Casa del Xolo, for short, is Latinx mutual aid organization that responds to the needs of the community. Located inside our bakery is our free community fridge & food pantry. Donations are welcome anytime during normal business hours.
We hope to become an essential part of the Fremont neighborhood. With your help we can build our reputation as a vegan bakery with a standout business model based on compassion and community.
In the summer of 2020, Lara de la Rosa (she/her) started Lazy Cow out of her basement. Lara has had a love for food and baking since early childhood. She moved to Seattle from Tijuana, B.C., Mexico. Lara graduated from the University of California in 2018 with a degree in Biochemistry. She is now the pastry chef for Lazy Cow and runs the social justice organization Casa del Xolo.
Lara loves reading to the sound of swamp noises, saving half the gum for later and clawfoot bathtubs.
"My name is Gustavo Berho (he/him) and I'm a baker. I'm also a violinist and in my free time I work on musical projects within the local community. Being a native of Seattle, I've seen the city grow and change overtime. I look forward to becoming a part of that process of change within the community through Lazy Cow and music."
Gustavo started his vegan journey 6 years ago and has been involved with activism at Casa Latina and Orquesta Northwest.
"My name is Chrisy Salinas (she/her). When I’m not at Lazy Cow, I’m a photographer! I have a huge passion for arts and social media — specifically concert photography. I moved to Seattle from Virginia in Feb 2021 and have absolutely fallen in love with living here and immersing myself in the community.
I’ve been plant based since I was 12 and i’m extremely excited to grow here at Lazy Cow and meet all of you!
If you want to send me recommendations of places to eat, things to see, or cool concerts to go to — let me know!"
