Red Velvet Cake near Rock Center


I am looking for a bakery or cafe where I can bring a group of 15 for cake (red velvet is preferred) and eat there. This is for a birthday celebration.

Thank you.

  1. Seating at bakeries, if they have any, is going to be dirt come first served. It's unlikely you'll be able to get 15 seats close together. For example, Magnolia Bakery is nearby and has no seating at all.

    You're probably better off getting a whole cake and bringing it to a restaurant where you're already eating dinner (and paying an extra fee).

    1. Depending on time of day, perhaps Amy's Bread on 9th ave (a 10 minute walk from Rock Center) could accommodate you in back. They have fantastic red velvet cake.

      1. I knew it would be a long shot but thought I would put it out there anyway.

        Bringing a cake to the restaurant isn't really an option because we are going to a show after dinner and wanted dessert after.

        I thank you all for your help.

          How about red velvet cupcakes? Those can be eaten anywhere.
