I picked up 2 dozen mini gluten free cupcakes for a small birthday gathering and they were DELICIOUS!!! I don't think I've had a better gf cupcake anywhere! If you are grain-free as well, Kara's has a flourless cupcake that is to die for. Tastes...More

Found this gem on Trip Advisor wanting something to satisfy my sweet tooth. Picked up 8 cupcakes (you can't try just one...also bringing some home for the kids). Tried Kara's Carrot, Java, and Chocolate Velvet. Soooo soooo good. Frosting is really good and cake was...More

I've been living in SF since 2000, and Kara's cupcakes are one of my favorite all time SF foods. Do yourself a favor and get a s'mores and a lemon. I've tried all the flavors and these are hands down the best.

Even though the cupcake fad has been over for years, this is still a good place for a sweet treat that is fun to eat.

Impossible to choose which flavor you like more! They offer regular and small size cupcakes. You can take them with you in a cute box, or just eat them in the store immediately (why to wait to enjoy them?)!

I recently visited and purchased 4 cupcakes. Loved the boxes the boxes they use to pack the cakes. Not a smushed one in the bunch. Great treat to end the day

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
