BabyCakes at M Café

Last night, the fiancé and I met up with friends for dinner and visited one of our favorite spots, M Café in Culver City. If you haven't been, M Café serves up contemporary macrobiotic cuisine in a European-style café setting. They have some really yummy and super-healthy dishes on the menu, and because it's macrobiotic, they don't use any refined sugars, eggs, dairy, red meat or poultry. It's not entirely vegan, as they do serve fish, but as long as you stick to the non-fish menu options, you can be sure that what you get is vegan. They offer really beautiful and tasty seasonal deli salads, fun varieties of sushi, and decadent pastries and desserts. To top all this goodness, M Café recently started carrying sweets from the famous BabyCakes NYC, a vegan and (mostly) gluten-free bakery that I've been dying to try. Most exciting!

a winning combination!

After stuffing myself with the ridiculously scrumptious sweet potato fries, my absolute favorite bistro salad, and a lovely Malbec, I couldn't help it... I had to try a cupcake! It was Vegan Cupcake Thursday, after all. It was the end of the day, and the pickings were slim, but I managed to nab one of the last vanilla cupcakes. It had been in a refrigerated case, so it was a little cold, but the verdict remains positive! This gluten-free cutie had great flavor and was perfectly sweet! I loved the frosting the most. Yum!

There have been rumors of BabyCakes opening a West Hollywood location, which I think would be a mighty fine choice. Currently, their only L.A. storefront is downtown, which for those of us who tend towards the West, is a bit of a drive. But for now, you can check out gluten-free yumminess at your local M Café: a double-win scenario, because you can chomp down on some delicious vegan food first (try the Big Macro Burger, trust me). What are you waiting for? Go!
