Cupcakes from That Takes the Cake - An SF Bay Guardian Favorite

Food and Beverage

The cupcakes at That Takes the Cake are cupcakes at their best. Located in the heart of the Union Street shopping district in San Francisco, they offer more than 40 different cupcake flavors made fresh throughout the day.

Choose from delicious delights such as Blonde Bombshell, Gentlemen Prefer Reds, and Alfred Hitchocolate. If you are feeling particularly decadent, pick one of their famous filled-cupcakes, like Hella Nutella or Samoa (yes, like the Girl Scout Cookie).
That Takes the Cake's innovative menu is paired with true dedication to the philosophies of old-fashioned baking. That’s why they use only fresh, natural ingredients and prepare each batch with care and love. Cupcakes are rich, creamy and full of a flavor you just can’t get at any old cupcake store.
That Takes the Cake has a treat for every occasion, including Halloween, bachelor, bachelorette and wedding-themed cupcakes. They also partner with a vegan kitchen to serve those with special food needs.

Really, these are the best cupcakes in the city. And, to me, no party is complete without cupcakes.
