“Babycakes NYC”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Good tasty cakes. Served up by a friendly bunch. They are very talkative and willing to share their own personal favorites in the event that you can't decide due to the sheer amount of delicious desserts available in front of you. Definitely a great place to stop for your cupcake-fix.

These cupcakes were so dry. i think the Saharah has more moisture! i was shocked at how bad they were.
Not worth it! I dont know how they stay in business.

“Great place for vegan and gluten free desserts”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Head on over to Babycakes if you are vegan or gluten intolerant. Their baked donuts are great so are the cupcakes. Lots of people say it is dry, but I guess sometimes you have to make that discount if you are eating gluten free. I didn't care, everything looked great and tasted great too.

“Great spot for Vegans with a sweet tooth”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

This is my wife's go to spot for vegan sweets. They sell vegan and gluten free cupcakes, doughnuts, cakes and biscuits. The treats are great and I highly recommend to anyone with a food allergy.
I will warn you that a lot of the cakes and icing don't keep very long in the heat due to the lack of preservatives. So if you plan on walking around NY with a box of cupcakes in July, be warned.

“Dry as the Sahara”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Look, I can appreciate the GF, dairy free attitude of this place but frankly I don't understand the hype because the stuff was pretty tasteless and so dry that you HAD to have a drink. The saving grace was the Stumptown coffee. Also, the place is SO tiny that it's not charming, it's just annoying. The cases are not lit so you can't even see what's in them.
