Babycakes - 248 Broome Street (between Orchard and Ludlow)
A small (non-asian) bakery, located on the northern edge of Chinatown. An unassuming shoppe (with almost no signage), Babycakes specializes in healthy sweets, made with no wheat, gluten, eggs, dairy or even refined/artificial sugars. It's like Magnolia, done vegan style - offering snacks such as chocolate cake, cupcakes, gingerbread and cookies. Though somewhat expensive--averaging $3.00 per piece--the snacks are tasty. (The banana bread was particularly nice - with a sweet, moist texture.) Great for a change of pace - for those times when Taipan Bakery just doesn't get the job done!

2/4/07 Update - Since my visit to Babycakes, I've been around the block a few times...sampling the desserts available at several vegan joints (most on the westend). The results have been outstanding, and much more memorable than the sweets offered at Babycakes. So if you really, really want the perfect brownie or chocolate cake...consider Blossom or Sacred Chow as well as BC. Sorry baby - you've been outclassed!
