Tucked away on a street close to the Temescal Farmers’ Market is an outpost of delectable cupcakes by the Cake Ladies, says cfarivar. They’re made with organic ingredients and local produce when possible; the strawberry cupcake sports a fresh berry on top. The Cake Ladies also do a delicious strawberry scone, and the coffee is from Ritual Roasters. For those with food allergies, they sometimes have gluten-free (and vegan) goods on hand, and other allergen-free cupcakes can be had with a week’s notice. Cupcakes and scones run about $3.
