Tucked away on a quiet stretch of Broome Street on the Lower East Side is this tiny storefront run by baker and cookbook author Erin McKenna. Whether you have dietary restrictions or are a vegan by principle, this bakery has some treats for you. All of its cakes, cupcakes, cookies, muffins, brownies and other baked goods meet this strict checklist (a result of McKenna¹s own food sensitivities): vegan, kosher, gluten-free, wheat-free, refined sugar-free, casein-free and soy-free. So, what exactly do they use? Rice flour and agave nectar, plus canola and cold-pressed coconut oil. The bakery definitely has a bit of a hipster edge (model Agyness Deyn is a big fan); indie rock plays as cute girls with vintage style work behind the counter, pink paint, string lights and countrified bric-a-brac giving the whole scene a fun and feminine feel. Rest your vanilla frosting-topped carrot cupcake on the small counter or take a dozen to go.—Keith Wagstaff
