A friend and I stopped in after discussing plans for the Adorevintage April 2011 lookbook shoot on Wednesday. I didn't know Babycakes was a vegan bakery, usually I would high tail it elsewhere, but the decor was so darn cute, I thought why not?
I'm a sucker for cute interiors like I'm a sucker for packaging and presentation. The girls that work here wear adorable pin striped little shift dresses with bows on the neck. Um, yes please!
The prices are higher. I find that's pretty common for places like this... but $5.00 for a CUPCAKE... I know it has fancy grains and soy milk...but FIVE DOLLARS for something I can literally eat in two big bites? Hrmph.
If you're in downtown LA and looking for a cute vintage-y place to get a vegan baked treat (and DELICIOUS coffee, seriously, so yummy!) I recommend Babycakes. But, if you're not really into the "healthy" versions of sinful desserts like brownies, cupcakes, and bread loaves, I'd probably just skip it unless you want to go here to admire the vintage records on display and to feel cute in this very girlie bakery.
