Very Good Food, 12/13/2013
Reviewer: Glenn from Buellton
The food here, Panini and salad were very good, worth the price. The people were nice here too. The cupcakes were good, better than other crushcakes trips at other locations where the cake was too dry and the frosting too sweet, looks like they in this batch at least have figured it out. Should have gotten a beverage here too as was disappointed with the Juice Ranch place within this restaurant, like tasting lawnmower clippings(try Backward Bowls instead). A nice variety menu, red velvet pancakes are a must try if you have not tried them at a location yet. This restaurant is on the upscale for IV but for those who can afford it a good place to go.

Let me start by saying that I am a loyal crushcaker. I love the downtown location and eat at the café frequently. Today, I suggested that myself and two co-workers try the Isla Vista location. When we arrived, I noticed the owner was there, so I was certain we would receive good service and food. I even pre-tipped $5 anticipating a good experience.Boy was I WRONG! my co-worker (who ordered separately) order a half salad and soup. It took 38 minutes to get her food! On top of that, they forgot the dressing on her salad! When our food arrived, (my friend ordered a cheesesteak)- it was made with cheddar and was nearly flat from lack of meat. Not to mention... cold and the cheese was not melted at all. My sandwich was o.k. but I had ordered a BOWL, not a CUP of soup... which was incorrect. After waiting nearly an hour for our food, we scarfed it down and left. NEVER TO BE BACK. What a shame.

Crushcakes does it again! Great food and desserts!, 11/20/2012

I've been a fan of the SB and Carp locations and am happy to see the IV location open up. Their food is fantastic with a great variety from nachos to salads and soups/sandwiches. Then there's the cupcakes! Gotta love fresh baked goodness.
