“Consistently good...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

We have been to this dessert spot multiple times and have enjoyed the cakes/pastries time and time again. The atmosphere is casual and friendly - serving good coffee and a great array of desserts. The latest find was a poppy seed cake - with what we think is a light cream cheese icing - will have it again for sure...

Great place to chat over cake and coffee!

“Such a huge portion”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

After dinner with a very dear friend on the last night of my visit to San Francisco, whilst walking down Market Street, he suggested stopping at Sweet Inspirations for dessert.

I'm very happy we did. We enjoyed a huge tasty portion of a cheesecake that was great. Company of course was as well.

“confections at its finest!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2011

I had the Princess cake, with its marzapain coating and whip cream creme, the best is that is was not overly sugary (sweet). something my momma would like!
