Best

On my regular trips out to San Francisco, one of the places I regularly travel to is this dessert establishment I first got exposed to by a good friend of mine. Everything I have...

Worst

They give you big portions in this place but the flavor and texture is just average. It's a more gathering place than a serious dessert shop.

Spectacular desserts, warm and friendly place to sit 9/14/2007

The desserts here are works of art and so delicious that you'll scream with delight as you eat them. They have free Wi-Fi (but sit in the rear for a stronger signal). I've been going there for years and love the place. My only gripe (for which I deducted one star) is that the prices seem high (around $7 for one slice of pie or cake) and lately the entire place has been staffed by one person, and I've waited as long as 12 minutes just to get coffee and a snack. Go with a friend and split a dessert, you can't go wrong with this place. If you can't wolf down an entire slice of dessert (they're huge) get one of their cookies. Pros: Terrific place to sit with friends and chat over coffee and dessert Cons: Prices are a bit high, can be a long wait during peak periods late at night more

Never called back!!! 8/6/2007

I have left 2 messages and nobody has ever gotten back to me!!! So much for the birthday I had planned. I will never do business with these people again. more

Good Desserts in the heart of San Fran 7/20/2006

On my regular trips out to San Francisco, one of the places I regularly travel to is this dessert establishment I first got exposed to by a good friend of mine. Everything I have tried here is always very good, with heavy emphasis on the mousse and similar desserts. Never tired the cakes, so can't respond to the other feedback about the quality there, but the three other times I've been had included mousse, cheesecake and cookies, all were great. The staff can be a little bit indifferent, so the service isn't top notch, but the food is great! Pros: Great mousse Cons: No frills service more

Not too bad 4/14/2005

Good selection of cakes and pies, as well as baked good and non-alcoholic drinks. Portions more than filling (take half home with you). Tends to be busy and a bit loud, busy with the locals. Pros: Good after-date Cons: Noisy more

Dry cake, terrible customer service 7/19/2004

I used to love Sweet Inspirations, but after I ordered a cake from them for a friend's 30th b-day, my opinion changed entirely. The cake was so dry it was inedible. What's worse, when I called to complain, the owner didn't return my calls. Beware before purchasing anything from this business. more

awful service 3/14/2003

Ten years ago the desserts at Sweet Inspirations were wonderful to eat... Now they are dry and horrible. The prices went up and the quality went down. No wonder this place was so pathetic to add the breakfast and lunch menu. Too bad.... more

Get The Cheesecakes and Tarts 2/21/2003

I've been going to Sweet Inspirations for a number of years. One thing is consistant...the cheesecakes and tarts are great, but the cakes and cookies are HORRIBLE. A Duncan Hines cake mix would have more flavor and moisture. I couldn't put my finger on it, but now I know what it is. Like the previous person stated, the cake must be loaded with sawdust!! The management act like stuck-up people for don't get a clue about why they are where they are.... it's all about customer service! Pros: Cheesecakes, Tarts Cons: Cakes, Cookies, Management more

Huge Portions 1/24/2003

They give you big portions in this place but the flavor and texture is just average. It's a more gathering place than a serious dessert shop. more

MMM...GOOODDDD 11/11/2002

After having dinner out, we skip dessert so that we can eat at Sweet Inspirations. The staff is very friendly and the portions are wonderful. They are a little pricey, but the portions are large. As long as they don't change that, they will have a long following. They have a plethora of wonderful desserts to choose from and terrific coffees too. It is also nice that they are open late...so you can get that late night sweet. Pros: great selection, open late, nice sizes Cons: parking more

Always A Winner 10/30/2002

I have enoyed Sweet Inspirations many times. It has never failed to satisfy as there is always a wide slelection of choices. It's not a bakery, so if you want a cake for a party, look elsewhere. But if you want something tasty for dessert, take a look and you will most likely be extremely pleased. If I am eating dinner in the Castro with friends, I always skip dessert, and take them here to cap off the night. Always a winner. Pros: Selection, Choice, Value more

Worst Cake Ever 10/28/2002

Went to a Child's Birthday Party with a Chocolate/Chocolate Cake. It tasted like sawdust with chocolate overtones. It was as if it was put in the freezed and forgotten about. This was the worst cake I have ever had in my life! more

DRY CAKES, HORRIBLE SERVICE 10/21/2002

I placed an order over the phone for a cake and asked if I can have a sample. When I went there I was told they don't normally give samples, but they gave me one anyway. When I sampled the cake it was dry with no flavor. They covered the dryness with the whipped cream and strawberries. Anyway, when I called to CANCEL my order the woman remembered me and said that the guy never said that he'd give me a sample. They wouldn't cancel my order because they said it was too late. When we actually got the cake it was dry and everyone that had a piece thought so too. I WOULD NOT RECOMMED THIS PLACE . THEY ARE PROBABLY OPEN LATE HOURS BECAUSE THEY DON'T MAKE ENOUGH MONEY DURING THE REGULAR HOURS. AS FAR AS THE GOOD RATINGS, IT'S PROBABLY THE OWNERS TRYING TO PROMOTE BUSINESS. Cons: Horrible Service, Dry cakes more

not for the calorie conscious 8/9/2002

Everything I have tried (quite a few of them by now) I have loved. Especially good are the hazelnut torte and the chocolate mousse. more

orgasmic 7/31/2002

if there were two sweet inspirations for every starbucks in the city, i would never want to leave...even their basic chocolate chip cookies are delectable. and the price is right, too. more

Huge, delicious desserts! 7/1/2002

Perfect for after-dinner dessert with a friend, or if you're on a date.... The Tri-Color Chocolate Mousse Cake is to die for. I've ordered it a few times for birthday parties--always a hit! The other desserts are excellent, too. Haven't tried the ice cream, but who would given all the pastry choices? more
