Respond to Review of CLOSED: Babycakes - downtown LA
Review: I've been to Babycakes a couple of times since they've opened. The interior is really cute, and there are a couple of tables inside of the place to sit and have tea while you enjoy the desserts. It was busy both times with a line going out the door. I tried a cornbread biscuit sandwich with raspberry jam and vegan cream cheese that was really delicious, the skinny bun which was pretty dry, the cupcakes which were dry and had frosting that was much too greasy (tastes like a lot of vegetable shortening), and cookies, which were too thin and crunchy. I've definitely had better vegan desserts, and the prices are kind of steep considering the size of the desserts. I'd much rather go to Yummy Cupcakes in Burbank. It's not completely vegan, but they always have one or two vegan cupcakes, and they are big, moist, and absolutely delicious for about the same price. Plus, there's lots of free street parking at Yummy Cupcakes. Babycakes parking in that sketchy part of downtown means an additional $6 to park in a lot. Even the metered parking is unusually high in that area.
