Crushcakes & Cafe

Santa Barbara, California

A sign in the middle of the bakery in the old Victorian that is home to Crushcakes reads: KEEP CALM AND HAVE A CrushCAKE. But it’s hard to be even-keeled after a bite of the chocolate chocolate one, made from owner Shannon Noormand’s grandma’s recipe (and Callebaut chocolate). Other winners are the red velvet and the dreamy coconut cloud. They even have daily vegan and gluten-free cupcake options plus a seasonal choice. Pick one—or three—then head up the ramp to the cafe for espresso drinks, or if you’re famished, try their breakfast or lunch.
