How it All Began

Now in its fourteenth year, BC Kitchen began as a seventeen seat hole-in-the wall and was originally called Babycakes Bakery Café. It quickly became known for its made-from-scratch baked goods, eclectic breakfast and lunch menus and custom catering. With nothing more than a home cook stove and a convection oven BC grew into a favorite neighborhood hangout for the Vassar College community and locals alike.

In 2007 BC tripled in size by taking over the adjoining space, added dinner service and a full bar and became Babycakes Café. The launch of a special event catering menu and patio dining put it squarely on the map as one of Poughkeepsie’s top restaurants. The evolution to BC Kitchen ushers in the final rebirth of this Arlington landmark. Seasonal food menus, local brews on tap, artisanal cocktails and fine wines, and of course the signature Babycakes desserts make BC Kitchen the place to be morning, noon and night!
