If you're after cupcakes, you're in luck: After a year's hiatus, Babycakes is back in Hillcrest, in a new location at 3795 Fourth Ave.
According to local reports, Babycakes operated a store in Hillcrest for about a decade before shuttering it in 2018. It's now back, offering nearly 20 flavors of cupcakes ranging from chocolate fudge to lemon Bavarian. The shop also sells brownies, cookies, macaroons and other sweet treats.
With a five-star rating out of four reviews on Yelp so far, Babycakes has been warmly received by patrons.
Jennifer A., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Dec. 8, wrote, "I tried the cupcakes, and [they] are so delicious and moist. I had the pistachio and chocolate hazelnut, and the flavors are really scrumptious. They have many more options, like cookies, cheesecake, pecan bars, eclairs and more."
And Josh F. added, "I will be back to buy all five flavors of brownies and can't wait to buy some of the cakes."
Babycakes is open from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. daily.
