Food-Allergy Friendly Treats at Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC

Food allergies unfortunately run in my family (my brother and I have multiple) and it was inevitable that my kids would develop them as well. I’m confident that they will be outgrown and become more mild over the years, but in the meantime, it had been really been tough finding sweet treats for my munchkins to enjoy. You can just imagine my excitement and appreciation when I first discovered Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC! Formerly known as Babycakes NYC, this amazing bakery features cakes, donuts, and other treats that are gluten, soy, dairy, and egg-free: all things that are really important to me. We first found their bakery on our 3rd trip to Disney World in 2011, and we were so excited to return in 2013. At that time their other location was in New York, but we found out that they also had a location in Los Angeles. Our family frequents LA so my husband can train at his Jiu Jitsu instructor’s school, and Erin McKenna’s Bakery is conveniently located 5 minutes away. Perfect right? My kids really enjoy choosing a treat or 2 when we visit and the staff is always welcoming and friendly. I can only hope we will one day run into Erin herself! Have you been to an Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC location and if so, what is your favorite item?
