The cupcakes were pretty good, just a bit on the expensive side. We came later in the day, at about 6pm, when they are open until 9pm I believe, and the selection seemed pretty limited. A little disappointed about that. So it was good, just a tiny bit of sticker shock.

I've been enjoying the amazing cupcakes for special occasions here for quite awhile. With people dieting and smaller gatherings a box of premier cupcakes for a birthday party was just the ticket. The have amazing combinations, beautiful colors and flavors and when the desert is served it makes you look like you know what you're doing!!

Sorry to say, this place was a bit of a letdown. We were in the Santa Rosa area for a night, and my daughter with the gourmet sweet tooth had heard of the Sift Dessert Bar and wanted to try it out. Alas, the selection was quite limited, the prices were really steep, the cupcakes very good but certainly not... More

I'd read about this place on TripAdvisor. I love a good bakery. The website boasted many choices. I was disappointed. They only had cupcakes and a few macaroons to choose from. I was interested in brownies and lemon bars, but they had none. I did get a cupcake. It was good, just not what I'd had in mind when I... More

If you are dining in the downtown area this is a great "after" treat. Cupcakes are large enough to split. Or with several people cut into pieces and share the variety.

While on travel with friends, we had need to pick up a birthday cake. Based upon internet research, we selected Sift. The cake we eventually picked up (champagne) was off-the-charts good. The sponge was perfect, the flavor profile was perfectly balanced, and the presentation (flower petals) had all the polish of a wedding cake. Do go here; you won't regret... More

The cupcakes in here are to die for. The chocolate one with cream in the middle and chocolate buttercream frosting is the BEST! Every cupcake I've had here is delicious and you can tell they use good ingredients. My favorite place for a treat when I'm in downtown Santa Rosa.

We had the 14 Carat Carrot Cake cupcake and the Red Velvet. Both were VERY good. The service was exceptional and the place was very clean.
