We were staying at a local inn and ran over here for dessert! Yummy cupcakes in all flavors and fabulous key lime pie which can be for two!

I love desserts. As Marie Antoinette joked "Let them eat cake! The decor is old-school, almost like a soda fountain/bakery mix. The cakes look like they flew in from the '50s, and taste amazing. Tried the Celebration Cake ~ $5, wow, the cake is dense and delicious, the frosting is just fantastic and usually arranged in the correct proportions. A... More

I was so excited to try it out but was sorely disappointed by the dryness of the strawberry and vanilla cakes. The chocolate was tasty and moist, but when it's 1/3 is good then it's not a great place considering we paid almost $12. Overpriced and dry!

This place consistently serves fresh and very tasty cupcakes as well as birthday cakes and cookies. The line can be quite long as I guess they have their well deserved reputation. Also try to avoid the last half hour of service as they tend to me sold out and only have some cupcakes left.

Say, these sweets aren't cheap, but price isn't everything: you will be returning again for a real taste experience. It's that good!

My wife and I had the coconut cupcake and red velvet. Awesome! We went back for more since these were so good. With so many bakeries in California, these people know what they are doing! And the staff was great! Thanks Susie's Cakes! YUM!

I purchased a frosting filled cupcake and a giant chocolate chip cookie. Cost was about $6. The cupcake butter cream frosting was very nice...and the cookie was great. Good amount of chocolate. The actual cupcake though was just a little on the dry/stale-ish side, which I am not a fan. The place was busy though--very popular and we walked by... More

These are the best cupcakes or slice of carrot cake I have had in San Francisco. It is always fresh and anything you pick is pretty darn delicious. They make cakes in advance for special events. My Mom likes this place so much that she tries to take a piece of the carrot cake home with her on the plane!... More

I stumbled upon this cupcake shop and was so happy I dad! They had a great variety of cupcakes and cakes! I choose a vanilla sprinkle cupcake with pink frosting! It was so moist and delicious! I believe it was under $5, so the price was fair. Yum! Will be back again.

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
