i'm learning that vegan does cost more so i was "OK" with the price and the counter help was very knowledgeable. but the product itself was really bad except for the sugar plum cookies. cupcakes and brownies were as dry as cardboard. i HAD to drink something w/ every bite. icing was not that great. i would NOT go there again. i'd rather go without.

I went here yesterday w/ my friend (we're both vegan) and we tried a bunch of treats. Out of the 4 things we had, I only liked one of them. Here's what I thought: agave brownie was terrible, red velvet cupcake had such a gritty texture I thought i was chewing on egg shells, corn cake was subpar, but the cinnamon sugar donut was really good. Mind you I am a vegan pastry chef, so I am a bit of a harsh critic. I know that gluten-free flour isn't that easy to work with but there's gotta be a way to get a finer consistency... Anyways, if you just go straight for the donuts. Skip the other stuff. Especially the agave brownie which tasted so bad I would almost say it was inedible. One more pro and con: the place is super cute and kitschy (albeit tiny) but Erin needs to pay her workers more or something ! -- the guys look emaciated and the girls had a permanent frown on their faces. I just don't get why people go nuts for this place... Sorry...

The cupcake was good but the frosting.....a whole 'nother story. frosting is supposed to stick to your finger and not look like that silly putty stuff you play with when you're a kid. Not only was it kinda gross looking, it tasted horrible! it made the entire cupcake taste bad! for 3.25 a cupcake that was regular size, def not a good choice. i would go up the block to sugar sweet sunshine bakery instead!

We bought 2 cupcakes and 1 sliced banana cake for $10. I think that it was rather expensive. But I am going back again although the location is not very good. I can not eat regular cupcakes since they are too sweet. I am a vegan and I avoid white sugar, gluten, dairy. It is not easy to find cupcakes as good as babycakes. I recommend this place if you don't mind the price and the location.

Everything was fresh & delicious, but I wouldn't run back; I'm still a Vegan Treats girl at heart. There's a good variety, so you'll want to try one of everything, but unfortunately Babycakes' space is really too cramped to enjoy a buffet feast with friends. The prices are a bit steep also, but you're sure to find something tasty. Brownies are delicious, but you'll need 4 as they are teeny. Was a bit disappointed to find that after spending quite a bit of money to eat in, my additional "to go" order was packed haphazardly & that I had been given the smallest of everything.

Cute place, was dragged there by a vegan date. Food was like bland cardboard. More proof that when something is "good" to vegans, it's still probably not good to the rest of us.

I'm not a vegan, I'm vegetarian, but I love finding delicious vegan desserts! This place is pretty good. I went there once last summer, and got the chocolate cupcake. I was a little bummed that it was cash only (if $25 or less), and they didn't seem concerned whether I bought one or not. Maybe because it was near closing time? The cupcake was pretty good, though. The cake part was a little crumbly, but overall I'd say it was tasty. And I know, being a veggie, that substitute ingredients are always more expensive, but for now I'll stick to my non-vegan options, mainly because I can get a cupcake twice as big for $2, rather than a tiny one for $3.25. But if I'm around the LES, I'll stop by!
