Last month, Lark Cake Shop opened a second location — the first opened in 2007 in Silver Lake — on Hill Street just north of Washington Boulevard, across from a Rite Aid and next door to Ray's Electronics Repair, in an area whose Bohemian cred is growing by the day. (Other recent additions include Mint Leaf Indian Cuisine and, right around the corner, Lavender & Honey coffeehouse.)
Lark’s is known for its cakes and cupcakes — but also offers cookies, brownies, scones, pies, tarts, bars and peanut brittle. (Their dairy supplier is the Challenge Dairy Cooperative, a group of more than 600 California dairies.) And no, Lark doesn't offer a gluten-free option, although you're welcome to try the flourless chocolate cake or cupcake. However, there are two vegan alternatives: chocolate orange and Boston banana.
