It seems like it has been forever that a new location of the popular Magnolia Bakery has been working on opening up at Orlando and 3rd Street near the Beverly Center.
Word comes from from Eater LA that the signs are going up and baking is going on inside, and they also say that the location will open up next week.

It will be the first domestic location for the uber hot bakery outside of New York. Magnolia is credited with starting the “cupcake craze” that still goes on today.
The original location in NYC’s Greenwich Village can have lines out the door well into the night around weekends, and limits on the number of cupcakes they’ll sell you. They are also famous for their banana pudding.
Magnolia Bakery was also featured in the “Sex and the City” episode in which Carrie, munching a pink-frosted cupcake while perched on an outdoor bench in front of the Greenwich Village institution, announced her crush on Aiden to gal pal Miranda.
We’re not sure why it has been taking so long to open the new location here, but it might be the lack of parking in the 3rd Street area.

Steve Abrams is the man bringing the bakery to our area, and accustomed to the Big Apple’s walkability, said he has been taken aback by the hostility residents have displayed at community meetings around the topic of parking.
“I feel a little bushwhacked,” he said to the Los Angeles Times. “This is an ongoing problem for the city of Los Angeles, but for a guy like me coming in new, it’s a new problem.”
It’s a bit surprising to hear folks complaining so much — to the point of saying that the area “cannot accommodate any more restaurants” — when property values would seem to rise by their proximity to such cool and hip establishments.

As someone who lived with a view of the new Magnolia Bakery location for quite some time before coming to West Hollywood, I’m familiar with the traffic and parking issues that the restaurants can bring. But in my experience, the biggest problems seem to come from nightclub and bar related parking and traffic, much more than any dining and shopping traffic.
And I still know property owners on Orlando at 3rd who are looking forward to the bakery opening on the corner.
Personally, I think its great to have restaurants and boutiques that are willing to open on a street with parking issues. It shows that they are confident that they can still attract customers that are less automobile focused. And Los Angeles needs a lot more areas like that rather than forced development of places to park. After all, what does a parked car, sitting there dark, empty and taking up space, do for the energy of an area?
