While in Carpinteria, we enjoy going to CrushCakes for breakfast. Sometimes it is with my husband and other times with 4-8 gal friends. No matter what is ordered, is fresh and yummy. Try it, more than not, you will go back.

Good crust cooked to perfection - light and airy with an exterior crunch! Sauce tastes homemade. Decent amount of toppings with great coverage. A bit too cheesy for my taste but it's totally worth it!
