Crush cakes & Cafe always have such fun dishes and yummy food, cozy soups and nice treats. When I stop in at Carp, I enjoy grabbing a quick bite, before heading to my destination that day.

I have eaten at Crushcakes several times and have always had a good meal. Mostly, I have had breakfast but I did have lunch a couple of times. Clean fresh and relaxed atmosphere, in good weather I like sitting on the back patio.

Great for cupcakes, of course, but also very nice meal selection. Outdoor dining in back is charming. Never had a bad meal yet. Best coffee in a long time.

Casual, things made fresh, and wonderful for breakfast. /they are famous for their breakfast bowl with honey on top, and their special cupcakes.

This place is quaint enough but it is inconsistent with service and food. Staff is rarely friendly. I go cause it is convenient and close to my work and they have healthy salads.
