Love this local favorite. Seating is inside or out and self serve. My wife and I are regulars and are stuck in a rut but a good rut.

Was super excited to visit Crushcakes after hearing good things. Walked in and immediately saw gnats in the cupcake cases (both cases). Walked out. No thanks!

These cupcakes are the best in town! I highly recommend them. They have many flavors, are light as can be.

Every trip Crushcakes is our stop at least once for breakfast...and their cupcakes. The food is fresh, made-to-order, all in a super-casual, down-to-earthiness setting in their small downtown location. The have a few around town apparently, but the one we frequent is on a small side street off State. Their organic scrambles are wonderful, with four or five selections of... More

Crushcake Cafe is our favorite place to get breakfast when we are in SB. They have great choices on their menu, the food is always fresh and delicious. They also have really really good coffee there too. Staff are attentive and nice. Oh ya and they also have delicious cupcakes...

Cute cupcakery right off of State Street. We bought some mini cupcakes and some regular size cupcakes to go. We had the cookies & cream, and the mini-lemon and mini-strawberry. Frosting was just right in terms of sweetness and the cupcakes survived the 5 hour drive back to the Bay Area without the frosting melting. I would go back again.

This bakery had great reviews but I found the cupcakes just average. I get better at my local Ralph's. The cake was more muffin like and the chocolate frosting wasn't creamy like I anticipated.

Cute cafe with great breakfast (hangover helper). The Mexican hot chocolate is amazing and staff is super friendly. Cupcakes are amzing (try to go during the happy hour and you get 4 cupcakes for the price of 3) Definitely recommended!

I went there to try it out. They have creative flavors, but too expensive. I would rather spend $4 at Wetzel's Pretzels.
