About Babycakes

The celebtration destination

Babycakes is situated in a Charming 1889 Craftsman Home in the Heart of Hillcrest near Balboa Park and just north of Downtown San Diego. Greeted by a 1000 square foot sidewalk patio, you can enjoy the pleasant San Diego weather all year round as you sip on a gourmet coffee/latte, indulge in a pastry or dessert, or relax over a glass of wine, ice cold beer or cocktail.Coffee drinks and more at Babycakes

Babycakes serves up a spin on traditional dessert flavors like blood orange, mocha, and red velvet. This coupled with a casual atmosphere that is reminiscent of the same charm you’d expect from Grandma’s house. It makes desserts more social and conversational – definitely a place to hang out and enjoy the moment!

Inside you will find eclectic décor including antique furniture, cozy couches, the original brick fireplace, open beamed ceilings, and a screaming chandelier. The dessert cases are full of decadent cakes, mouthwatering tarts and moist delicious cupcakes your taste buds will love. Hungry for more, snack on a stuffed croissant, quiche, chicken pie, or go fruity with a fresh fruit bowl. The café now offers lunch 7 days a week and a fabulous brunch on the weekends.

Explore the back patio known as the “Garden Patio” – very Key West with a European twist. The Garden is a perfect spot to meet friends and escape the day to day routine without distractions. Enjoy the protection of the Huge Cotton tree with Pink Flowers while feeling no guilt as you bite into a piece of Chocolate Decadence.
