Picked up a wonderful loaf made with fresh Okanagan berries and a lovely icing glaze. It made the journey by flight back to the Vancouver area, wrapped by the bakery in brown paper and tied up with string. Gobbled up by the family that afternoon. Fresh, flavorful, tasty, gone within 12 hours. My girlfriend swears the cupcakes are the best... More

Your grandma's tested, tried, and true old recipes to the extreme! This shops cupcakes and cookies were just amazing, you could taste the quality in the ingredients, and yet they were still so familiar and nostalgic. Treated ourself to a truffle filled chocolate layered cake and honestly dreamed about it for days after. The staff are super friendly and so... More

These cupcakes are amazing, but one will be more than enough, any more than that will give you diabetes

The cupcakes have a shelf life of three hours and after that they are not worth eating. I find all of them tasting the same!

My two teens and I stopped by for a treat after hearing about this place from a friend. We were so glad we did. Beautiful cupcakes, reasonably priced and absolutely delicious! We will make this a regular stop next time we are in Calgary!

I've had other specialty cupcakes in other cities, and Crave is the best by a large margin. The regular sized ones are a bit big, so I recommend the mini cupcakes.

Excellent service and the best cupcakes around, in many different flavours! We have also ordered a birthday cake and purchased many of their squares at Christmas. Although some of them are pricey, many are very tasty and worth the value.

Crave make the best cupcakes I have ever had. There are many flavours to choose from, and 2 sizes. The staff are very friendly. Not to be missed! The only thing I wish they had was a little cafe with tables and chairs where you can sit and eat your cupcake.

We'd heard about this place online and decided we'd go along, because at the time (summer 2008) cupcakes weren't really that big a thing in the UK. I'm so glad we went! These are still some of the best cupcakes I've ever tasted and I'd recommend anyone in the area go here. I'd be going back if I'm ever back... More
