We went there from a ad in a local tourist ad book for my Birthday and we were disappointed. Cupcakes are average and rather high priced. The frosting was not the best and some of the cupcakes tasted old. There was one filling that tasted of pancake syrup that was supposed to be a caramel flavor. The chocolate cupcake was overbaked and the frosting was bitter. They do have a lot of flavors. Parking is very hard to find curb side and you have to circle a lot or walk or pay for parking in a lot that is very expensive. No lines in wait once inside and they had a few customers eating the cupcakes there.

Heavenly Cupcakes are truly different. Their huge selection of flavors and kaleidoscope of colors and designs make it impossible to not find something your really need to taste. I get a selection of the small sized cupcakes --perhaps two inches in diameter for birthday parties at work or thank you gifts. Everyone LOVES to see the box coming through the door.

If you order six or more regular cupcakes and pre-pay over the phone, an employee will bring the box out to your car at the curb for a quick pick up. You can also order online. The shop is on 6th Avenue near Island., one block off of the GASLAMP QUARTER. If you are staying at any of the downtown hotels, this would be a nice treat to bring back to your room for later

Just got back from E coast and another stop at Crumb's. These cupcakes are just ok and a bit overpriced. There is a good variety of flavors. The good news is you won't need to be in a long line to be served.

I spent my 30th birthday in San Diego, and was pleasantly surprised when my girlfriend send a dozen cupcakes from Heavenly Cupcake to my room. Each of the 12 cupcakes were a different flavor (awesome!) and the variety was so broad! From carrot cake, to red velvet and margarita- they were all delicious. I am the type of gal that likes a cupcake with a cream/frosting/pudding infused into the cake and there were only 2 of 12 cupcakes that had anything inside. That's the only reason I gave them 4 stars instead of 5.

Will definitely go back next time I'm in San Diego!

We stopped two nights in a row after dinner to get some dessert to take back to the hotel. The red velvet was perfect with the right amount of tang in the frosting. The lemon cupcake was good, but was a bit dry. I liked the amount of frosting - not more than the cupcake - so the balance was perfect.
