We heard about this cupcake place from a friend and decided to visit, however my cousins are severely allergic to eggs, all dairy products, and all nuts. In order to make sure that the cafe would be able to provide cupcakes for them we went to the store a day before we needed the cupcakes, to inform them of the... More

Ate here two or three times during a vacation in Carpinteria. Wonderful breakfasts as well as salads and sandwiches. Definitely reommend a stop here (or at their downtown Santa Barbara or Isla Vista locations).

They do excellent lunches as well as the usual cakes and cup cakes. With a glorious patio to sit and watch the world go by

First came to Crushcakes for the cupcakes since we love the ones at their sister store in Santa Barbara. While there, found the salads and sandwiches to be outstanding also. The baked goods - scones and cinnamon rolls - are the best I've ever had. Only problem is they don't make enough and sell out quickly!

There isn't a lot in Capinteria to choose from, but this is a nice spot with food as well as cupcakes. I'd definitely recommend for the area.

We stopped here for lunch. I was worried about the name but it had a very fresh and inviting menu (and cupcakes if you wanted one).

I stop by here often for iced tea because it is served in a glass which I can enjoy on their lovely back patio while using their free WiFi. After reading the mixed reviews about the food on TripAdvisor, I decided to branch out and I'm glad I did. My soyrizo burrito was so flavorful I had no need for... More

My review says it all! Our breakfast omelets were under cooked, cold, not served to order, left out the ingredients we paid extra $$ for, with a Family of only 3, our meals were served up 15 minutes apart. Staffs excuse, was a shrug of the shoulders, no apology then walked away. Owner Manager's comments to us, the staff are... More
