Respond to Review of Erin McKenna's Bakery - formerly Babycakes
Review: Not situated in the nicest area of NYC but as tourists we were determined to visit as many vegan places whilst there. Very disappointing. It was like walking into a sorority house with all the girls behind the counter too busy talking to each other to give much customer service. Horrible techno music blaring out didn't help - not fitting for a cute bakery that they're trying to create. We ordered two cupcakes and two coffees (we had to pour the soya milk in them ourselves!!) and the server was not friendly. Very expensive. The cakes were lovely but nothing I couldn't make from the great recipes on the Parsley Soup website. There were also lots of posters and messages on display about how healthy the ingredients were for people with heart problems and other ailments. Come off it, whilst using spelt and the oils they use is a better choice this is still cakes which are not the healthiest of choices so don't try and pretend otherwise! A cake is a nice treat, not a remedy for heart conditions - not sure that message is great really, they should just sell the cakes rather than try and preach health messages. Wouldn't recommend - there are lots of lovely vegan puddings to be had at other NYC places that it's not worth going to the area, being deafened with rubbish music for these expensive cupcakes!
