Everyone’s favorite wholesale sweets maker is turning legit, opening up a storefront right on Beverly Boulevard.
Per LA Magazine, Cake Monkey Bakery will move into 7807 Beverly sometime next month, taking over a commercial kitchen space that was formerly used by Duff Goldman when he was first getting his Charm City Cakes and Cakemix locations off the ground over on Melrose.
The location is certainly small, and means that there will sadly be no space for sit-down eating whatsoever. This is a takeout operation only, but that’s alright: Cake Monkey’s iconic layer cakes are best shared among a bunch of friends over a dinner table somewhere anyway. They will be adding to their existing lineup as well, pulling in breakfast options and serving coffee, as well as providing a few gluten-free alternatives.
The neighborhood itself has a history with owner Lisa Olin and pastry chef Elizabeth Belkind, says LA Mag, who recounts the pastry chef’s journey from Campanile around the corner to Grace, Neal and Amy Knoll Fraser’s defunct dinner spot in what is now Petty Cash Taqueria.
Cake Monkey Bakery’s retail outfit should be ready to go in late October. Until then, you can keep finding their wholesale sweets just about anywhere in town, from Silver Lake Wine to the Oaks Gourmet in Hollywood.
