Charming little neighborhood shop that showcases some wonderfully tasty baked goods - get there early because batches are not massive, and sometimes you can score fay-old goods that are bargain priced but just as good!

Babycakes is amazing. My fiancé and I used to live in Florida and went to their Orlando location frequently. I'm in Anaheim, California now for work and I had to drive an hour just to get amazing donuts, cookie sandwiches and Pokeball cupcakes!!

Go here. Eat everything! Enjoy life again! It's so hard not being able to eat any baked goods due to food allergies but this place treats me like a queen! The staff were also fabulous and friendly. Highly recommend!

Gluten free heaven, so much variety!! I didn't know what to chose so I had 3 donuts- pumpkin spice, salted caramel and blueberry, they were all amazing. Also had coffee, and was asked "would you like rice, almond or soy milk", YAY!! Super duper recommended.

Thank goodness there is a Babycakes in LA that is near me, but not TOO near, or else I would weigh 400 pounds. No one does vegan pastries, donuts, cupcakes, scones, croissants, bagels, etc better that Babycakes. You and your non-vegan friends will never guess the stuff has no dairy or eggs. It's simply the best there is. They do... More

Love Babycakes - their baked goods are on par with any bakery. They have a branch in Los Angeles, too. Fresh fare daily that's YUM!

I had the carrot cake cupcake and mint cookie. I could have eaten 100 of them. They aren't too sweet or heavy. Huge selection and all I tried are delicious.

My husband and I stopped here during a visit to Los Angeles. I love vegan baked goods and had read so much about Babycakes NYC! Glad we stopped by. Frosting too sweet for my taste, but my husband had three cupcakes. Overall, they were very good. Price is a little high, but it is worth it as a nice treat.... More

There was no signage on the storefront indicating that these cupcakes are vegan. In comparison to traditional recipes, these cupcakes were dry, not moist, and really not that good. You're better off going down the street to Crumbs, which has a better selection, and definitely a more flavorful cupcake. We tried the red velvet, the lemon, and carrot cake.
