Competitive seating on the inside, amazing selection of cakes and other desserts. When it is nice out, there is the option of outdoor seating on the busy street. Nice tea presentation. Mostly people my age (people in their 40's 50's and 60's), this bakery is...More

Visitors shouldn't overlook the fresh fruit seasonal pies at Crixa: they taste better than Grandma used to make and show off beautifully. My favorite now is the pumpkin pie, but during the summer the peach and blackberry selection is fabulous, too. Everything at Crixa is...More

The savory baked goods are as special as the cakes. The European, Hungarian touch is very apparent and delicious, especially the hazelnut flavor!

I "have" been a fan of Crixa Cakes. But as good as their bakery is, success has spoiled this place. I would give them an award for the most arrogant bakery in the Bay Area. They run out of a lot of things, so when...More
