“Delicious!!!”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Fabulous for people with food allergies and gluten issues. The chocolate cupcakes are unbelievable even if you have no food issues.

“Great gluten-free options”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

I stopped at BabyCakes during a recent visit to NYC. So many options! Including for those with allergies and food sensitivities, such as gluten and sugar.

I got a mint chocolate chip cupcake, and my wife had a red velvet cupcake. They were both very good, especially considering what ingredients they DON'T use! We also bought a few goodies for the road.

The store itself is small, and some of their labeling is a little confusing, but overall, it's well worth a visit, especially if you have certain dietary restrictions!

“Try the donuts”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

Haven't had donuts in years, so was excited to learn of Babycakes gluten free donuts. They are indeed worth the trek to Lower East Side. Have to confess, wolfed two cinnamon sugar donuts down. Such a treat! Even better--many of the items here are made with agave instead of sugar. On the downside--they are expensive (about $4), donuts are small, and on our first visit, had to wait some time before got any attention from the staff. But, donuts! What a treat!

“BabyCakes, tasty cakes”
Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

Great spot on Broome. Known for it's vegan and gluten free goodies - don't be put off!
I had the cupcake top and it was super rich and moist, the frosting was yummy.
But their coffee? AMAZING.
