Mid-City/Downtown: Now, New York vegan cupcake shop Babycakes has had a Los Angeles location in the works for some time now. The bakery/cupcake shop already switched locations once late last year to go within the Earnest Sewn space on Beverly Boulevard, but it looks like yet another switcheroo is in the works. They've decided to completely abandon the project on Beverly. So, sorry to the Mid-City folks.
But—but!—the good news is that Babycakes has signed another lease in Los Angeles. Details are still forthcoming, but we're hearing is that the location will be somewhere downtown, specifically in the historic bank district. Given the delays they've experienced thus far, they are trying to open as quickly as possible. More specifics—address, dates et al.—as they come in...
