We were just passing through and needed some place to stop for lunch. The online menu featured gluten-free options, so we decided to stop.

Stay for the food So much more than just cupcakes. It's one of my favorite lunch spots in carp. I love their tomato basil soup, which you can get with toast or tortilla chips for under $5. Or, get a cup and half of one of their many delicious sandwiches. And oh, the salads. Honestly one of their best options.... 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).

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.

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.
