I ordered a carrot cake for one night and the original blum coffee crunch for the other night. Both were delicious!

I spoke with the baker, Earl, after having difficulty in placing an order for a small wedding cake with other bakeries. I was out of state and wanted a very small, two tiered, wedding cake for our wedding ceremony at city hall. He listened and assured me it wouldn't be problem. I emailed him a pictured of what I had... More

My family and I come from London and we were visiting San Francisco for a birthday. I contacted earl about the cake, he was so helpful and the cake was delivered to our hotel on time, and tasted fantastic. He did everything we asked for and made this day very special :)

We hadn't been here for two years and found that nothing had changed. Still great baked goods which are more like home-made than store-bought. The pies, cakes and cookies Re hard to beat. It's also fun to browse the antiques while you're there.

We happened upon Lotta's while looking for a lunch destination and were drawn in by the vintage finds in the window. I'm so glad we found it. After browsing the antiques and buying an adorable leather clutch bag, we grabbed some carrot cake, pumpkin bread and coffee. The carrot cake was moist with a light frosting and the pumpkin bread...

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
