Respond to Review of CLOSED: Babycakes - downtown LA
Review: I live in downtown L.A. and I am a vegan. That being the case I know that there are two highly coveted vegan options that are rare in the L.A. vegan food cuisine- good vegan pizza and donuts. Now that Cruzers pizza has become totally vegan (and is delicious) I had only one quest to check off my list- vegan DONUTS. One morning I found out about Babycakes and was itching to try a delicious donut, so I drove a short drive and parked my car. Unfortunately I did not have any quarters to feed the parking meter so I thought I would park it and go get change from the person working the register. As I walked into Babycakes expecting nirvana in the form of pastries I noticed that not only were there no donuts, but the price of a simple crumb cake was pushing $5. I did not dismay as I wanted to support a local vegan business and walked up to the register to explain my parking situation. The person at the register not only denied me change to pay for my parking meter- knowing full well that I intended to be a paying customer, but was very rude and put off. I will never return to this sub par bakery, and I am pretty much positive that it will not last in the California vegan market with such a pompous attitude that does not value the customer base which it attempts to cater towards. I am friends with many vegans who also work in vegan restaurants and nobody has said anything positive about this establishment.
