SAN DIEGO -- The newest addition to the Babycakes family will mark its grand opening today.
A celebration will be held today from noon to 8 pm at Babycakes Balboa Park.
Located adjacent to the Balboa Park Tennis Club at Morley Field, the new Babycakes location will focus on casual food items and have a limited selection of cupcakes and desserts. The original Babycakes location on Fifth Avenue in Hillcrest opened in 2008 and has since become a popular spot for drinks, dining and desserts, celebrations and community gatherings.
Babycakes is calling the new location a "chip off the old block with a twist."
Christopher Stavros, co-owner, told Gay San Diego that the decision to expand to North Park came after receiving a call from the Balboa Tennis Club, adding there have been several restaurants located next to the club in the past.
“The Tennis Club came to us a couple months ago to say they were interviewing other companies to move into the space and they wound up choosing us,” he said.
Customers are invited to visit the new space today during the Grand Opening Celebration, which will include free cupcakes, a lemonade stand, menu samples, activities for children and dogs, and giveaways throughout the day.
The new location is located at 2221 Morley Field Drive.
