My mom is a vegan and she always looks at the Happy Cow site for vegan friendly restraunts.

You may have some success with a bakery.  Good Luck!

Babycakes is a vegan bakery in Manhattan that makes cute cakes, but I would NOT recommend them because I find their products to be bland, cake texture weird and grainy, and frosting unpleasant.  I have been to a lot of vegan bakeries on the east coast and my favorite, by A LOT, is Vegan Treats in Allentown, PA.  They make beautiful, decadent cakes and have lots of flavor options, and deliver to New York (our wedding is in Manhattan and they’re doing our cake).  I wouldn’t trust a ‘regular’ bakery to do a vegan cake because they probably have no idea what sorts of ingredients to use for optimum flavor and texture (and if you’re looking to go egg-free most of all, this is the BIGGEST deal), and additionally, all the regular bakeries I’ve ever see offer a ‘vegan’ option only had one type of frosting (vegan buttercream) and one or two flavors of cake.  Lame.

Do you have a Whole Foods near you? I’ve found that with WF, it’s all about finding the right person to work with you. The chefs get a lot of freedom, so if you can find someone with a similar vision who is innovative, I bet you’d be able to get a great deal. And since they serve many vegan desserts on a regular basis, you could be confidant that they’d be comfortable working with alternatives to eggs, butter, etc.
