This is a small place that has stayed in business despite very mediocre cupcakes, both in aesthetic and flavor. The food and coffee must be good, as most reviews say; otherwise I don’t get the attraction. I work nearby and almost never go in. Prefer...More

We thought the food was good. Unfortunately we went there too late to try the bakery items I really wanted to sample - they apparently run out of most of the yummy stuff earlier in the morning. Prices are about what one would expect in...More

Loved this cute little breakfast spot! Enjoyed some red velvet pancakes and the hubby had an egg sandwich on sourdough with thick bacon. Coffee was delish -- mint mocha with oat milk. Dog friendly patio was a plus!

I come here at least once a week, because Crushcakes has the BEST breakfast skillet (they call it Café Skillet) in town. I know. I'm an expert on the topic. I think I've tried every skillet a breakfast restaurant in Santa Barbara has to offer....More

Love this local favorite. Seating is inside or out and self serve. My wife and I are regulars and are stuck in a rut but a good rut.

Was super excited to visit Crushcakes after hearing good things. Walked in and immediately saw gnats in the cupcake cases (both cases). Walked out. No thanks!

These cupcakes are the best in town! I highly recommend them. They have many flavors, are light as can be.

Every trip Crushcakes is our stop at least once for breakfast...and their cupcakes. The food is fresh, made-to-order, all in a super-casual, down-to-earthiness setting in their small downtown location. The have a few around town apparently, but the one we frequent is on a small...More
