Sweetness of the Lower Eastside of New York City

There are many hidden secrets throughout New York City, but knowing where to find them is the key. If you have a bit of a sweet tooth, like me, head to Babycakes. Having a sweet tooth is tough enough but finding a treat that isn’t overloaded with refined sugars is just as hard. This amazing bakery offers all natural and organic treats that features vegan, gluten-free cookies, cakes and doughnuts.

I was told to head to this bakery and after having dinner in Brooklyn, I jumped onto the subway and got off on the Lower Eastside and walked a few blocks. The bakery was down a road that was a little unexpected but after eventually finding it was glad I did. Babycakes was close to closing so I hurried up and ordered. I was worried about the freshness, and whether they would still be good after hours after being made. I ordered a few items….Let me just say Wow!

I loved Babycakes. This small little bakery, that only holds a few customers at a time was very impressive. Without all their items out (due to closing) they still had quite a few that looked good. Their products are dairy free, egg free, soy free, gluten free and are sweetened with agave. So I picked a few out that were also made with coconut oil. What I loved about their treats was that they weren’t oversized, just the right amount and were extremely delicious.

The Mounds was my favorite; a coconut shaped heart dipped half in darkimage chocolate. Soft and sweet, with just the right amount of chocolate to add the the sweetness of the coconut. I love chocolate and feel desserts should be made out of it, just like their brownies that are sweetened by agave. Their quality of products were delightful, even more so without the butter, cream and preservatives.

This cute little bakery was worth a second trip back to the Lower Eastside, but unfortunately they were closed on New Years Day. I do plan on returning back to Babycakes the next time I’m in New York City; to get my fill of organic chocolate and sweets when I Go Lost in New York.
