“No better version of Blum's Coffee Crunch Cake!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

San Franciscans over 40 remember San Francisco's premier place for ice-cream sundaes, and amazing cakes: Blum's on Union Square or California Street. Blum's was particularly famous for its whipped-cream filled coffee crunch cake. For thousands of families, it was the only possible birthday cake. Blum's is gone, and various bakeries have tried to duplicate it, but only Yasukochi's Sweet Stop has succeeded it. I bought one last week, and brought it in to my office. Everyone loved it. Crunchy, sweet and perfectly made. It evoked lots of good memories. The bakery is buried in the back of a small grocery store in Japantown. It is definitely worth looking for.

“The Crunch Cake!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

If you have never had this cake - get it in whatever flavor they have left. When we went this time they only had lemon slices - I usually go for the coffee - the original. The lemon was absolutely delicious. Don't miss it - The sweetest lady will pack up your treats in a little pink box. I haven't tried anything else, I can't get past the crunch cake.
