We stopped here with my family and we all absolutely loved all of the desserts. The cappuccino was great. The coconut chocolate cupcakes the croissant. Will definitely return.

My friend was raving so much about Crave that my oppositional/defiant side kicked in to the point where I went pretty much everywhere else before we hit Crave. I ate EVERYTHING. It was all UHMAYZING. My friend and I are hardcore cupcake snobs, and damn but this place just blew my mind.

I am a bit of cupcake snob - not so much the cake itself but the icing! The icing on these cupcakes isn't horrible sweet nor does it cling to the roof of the mouth (like those made with crisco). It doesn't live up to the icing up north, but it's some of the best I've found in Texas. The... More

Large range of excellent flavors in tiny, moist, flavorful, beautifully decorated cupcakes. For about 200 calories, heaven to the tastebuds. Even red velvet is flavorful and not bland. Chocolate cupcake is worth every calorie.

Best cupcakes in Houston ! Only wish both locations were easier to get in and out or had a drive thru.

Ok, I'll admit it. I have one of the world's biggest sweet tooths. These cupcakes are absolutely outrageous. All of them. If you eat one of them and don't want to buy another you must see the doctor immediately because you will have lost all sense of reason. They are a bit spendy, but, what the heck, it's a great...

My family and I have jumped on the cupcake bandwagon and I like to try a local cupcake place everywhere we go. We visited Houston for the weekend and were told we just HAD to try this place. The cupcakes looked great so I was excited. Overall, I was not impressed, though. I liked the icing (and I'm someone who... More

Do not understand popularity of this place. Chocolate cupcake flaked all over the place, evidence of over baking as bits were dry. Icing was very stiff, not creamy, and not much of it. Worst was the taste which was nothing chocolate like. I would give it terrible except the people are so nice. They show a sundae on display, there... More

Some reviewers have suggested that there may be too much frosting on the Crave cupcakes. Oh, no. There is never too much frosting. The frosting makes the cupcake. Moist cake with more than enough frosting for any frosting lover equals a Crave cupcake.

Ok, I am just really really grateful for Crave because they have a vegan cupcake (allergies to eggs and dairy) and it is extremely difficult to find places with any vegan desserts around Houston. The thing is that, while the red velvet is actually quite good (bit too much frosting. though) it is the ONLY flavor, and once a cupcake... More
