“Best cupcakes in San Francisco!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Susie Cakes has by far the best cupcakes in San Francisco. The cake part is scrumptious - not too heavy or thick. It is fluffy, while still a little dense. The frosting is totally heavenly and not too rich. They have many flavors, but the most popular always seem to be red velvet and funfetti. I will always give Susie Cakes my business!

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Without a doubt, the new place (Lafayette, CA) to go for cakes and pies for us. Awesome pumpkin, apple and pecan pies. Probably the best pecan pie we've ever had. They even called to see how we enjoyed the pies. Customer service goes a long way.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

“Fantastic cakes and baked goods.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

I love SusieCakes, probably a little too much. They are so nice avd professional. It is certainly about presentation. Everything is lovely. The store design, the baked goods, the outfits that make one think of the 50's. They wear head bandanas and remind me of Lucille Ball or Rosie the Riveter. I love their frosting. I prefer the mini cupcakes as there is the perfect proportion of frosting and cake. The big ones are good but I prefer the mini ones. Their cakes are delicious. I am forgetting the names but I have never been disappointed. A lovely cake with coconut and more. Worth the calories.

Really good cupcakes, lovely flavours and nice local shop. All sorts to try in there including some flour free options.

“yummy desserts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

All the delicious treats I have tried are so good. Especially the lemon bars -- if feels like they melt in your mouth. Also the old fashioned chocolate cake. I would recommend it but to share because it is such a large slice and it is very rich but good.
