My husband and I are on a quest for the best cupcakes ever - and we have a winner here! The bakery itself is very small - if there are many people one may even need to wait outside for their turn. Everyday there are different selections available - not countless ones, which ends up ensuring the ones you get... More

I found Cups and Cakes by accident, just by walking by! The small bakery had wonderful scents wafting out the door. Lucky me that I stopped by during their buy one, get one free happy hour. The cupcakes were so flavorful and moist. They could be described as heavenly! My only regret is that I didn't stock up!

The bakery isn't located in a very tourist/popular area but well worth the walk! We tried the Red Velvet and Strawberry cupcakes. The icing is absolutely PERFECT! The cups are very unique as well!

First of all, who doesn't love cupcakes, right? Cups and Cakes Bakery gets it right on all points. The cake is just the right density and level of moistness. The frosting is delicious, but not too sweet or overpowering. And the flavors! They have an amazing variety of flavors they've come up with. Personally, I recommend the fruit flavored ones.... More

Everytime my family or I are in SF we can't resist a stop at this bakery. Just as we start to get tired of walking and sight seeing, an afternoon cupcake at Cups and Cakes perks us back up. Delicious baked goods and wonderful people, a perfect place to round out the day.

Cups and cakes is one of those "we must stop here" places every time we visit San Francisco. Its like the cupcakes have some sort of magical magnetism that pulls you in to the adorable little bakery...it also helps that parking Rocks We love all the specialty flavors and the caramels are sent from heaven.

I am constantly impressed by the flavors that come out of this shop. I'm a local, but it's the kind of place I'd go out of my way to find. Make sure to try the Red Velvet, it's amazing.
