    Just spent a week in NY. We ate goodies from Babycakes each day. They are the best!!

    This is literally torture, how could y’all? I was just up last night unable to fall asleep in my bed because I was having a MAJOR Candle 79 craving. :(

    SO GOOD.

    I can’t wait to move to New York. New Yorkers have it MADE for vegan food.

    Alicia is just everywhere right now. Good for her. I hope it spreads peace kindness everywhere!

  8. Beanie says:

    She is funny. Haven’t been to Hangawi in forever and I’m totally craving Candle!

    Personally, I think Babycakes is too expensive if you don’t have any allergies. And too small. Head over to ATLAS CAFE in on 2nd Ave between 4th & 5th and get some VEGAN TREATS (from Philly). Deliveries every Tuesday. Cakes, pies, cupcakes, donuts, and more. All cheaper, bigger, and taste more like the “real thing”.

    Oh, wow, awesome. I’m lucky enough to live in DC, where I can get Sticky Fingers and their grilled “cheese” sandwiches with the Daiya. That stuff is insanely good.

    There are a few places here that offer Vegan Treats, and those are off the wall!

    Great video.. But Babycakes puts too many ingredients in their desserts.
    There a few Way better places to go to for vegan treats for sure

  14. Jean says:

    I agree with Tim…Babycakes is incredibly overrated. There are a million better places to score vegan baked goods in the city. Lower price and wayyy better taste and texture. Although a correction to his comment, Vegan Treats come from Bethlehem, PA which is near Allentown and is not Philly, at an hour and a half away (though you can find Vegan Treats all over Philly, as you can New York).

    Just talking strictly Manhattan…imo all the Whole Foods in Manhattan do a remarkably good job with vegan baked goods overall. I also love to stop into Cocoa V and see what they’ve got for sale that day (they sell Manhattan’s own Dun-Well doughnuts in addition to their own house-baked stuff!). But the best option in Manhattan, imo? Cowgirl’s Baking in the East Village…the only other vegan bakery in Manhattan besides Babycakes, with a way better and more interesting selection and delectables that taste great.
    And if you’re feeling super-decadent, Silverstone definitely ended this video on the right note…there’s no better place to get a rich, luxurious vegan dessert in NYC than Candle 79.

    Just my two cents. Heh.

    Triple agree – girls. This vid was made 2 years ago and we re shared bc it’s a cute summer piece but BabyCakes ain’t no cowgirl or vegantreats or even comes close to the caliber of vegan desserts I’ve had. Still glad they are there, but agree that they are over hyped. Main gripe w them is that they don’t promo animal rts directly or support the AR world via their work (a perfect platform for activism!) like the other vegan sweets spots do. They more push the gluten free thing less so the ethical eater thing.
