While in Carpinteria, we enjoy going to CrushCakes for breakfast. Sometimes it is with my husband and other times with 4-8 gal friends. No matter what is ordered, is fresh and yummy. Try it, more than not, you will go back.

This is a self service type venue with seating or take away options. We ordered a 12" pizza and salad to share between the two of us. The pizza was excellent, the best we had sampled in a long time. However, our eyes were somewhat...More
