Citizen Cake San Francisco Reviews
May 16, 2007
We went there for a weekend brunch.
They seated us promptly when our entire party had arrived... It was a tight squeeze though because there were more of us than expected.
The food was mediocre, but the desserts ARE GREAT!! We went because it was featured on the Food Network on several occasions. I'd go there again for dessert.
Update: Thank you, Paul, for making Citizen Cake such an interesting experience for us tonight.
And Citizen Cake has some crazy funky desserts - presentation was fantastic for the Black Sesame dessert with tapiocas. I don't remember the name, but the sugar brulee ball is amazing!

[Californian] Dessert place in SF's Hayes Valley (near Civic Center)
I've been here twice -- once for dessert, once for brunch. The
atmosphere is very sterile -- the biggest detterent for me. The
decor tries too hard to be ultra modern that it makes you feel cold and
uncomfortable. The food, however, lives up to its
reputation. For brunch, the portions are very small, but the
quality is very high. We had the french toast (very good), quiche
(good but small), and scrambled eggs (you'd think that it's impossible
to be impressed by scrambled eggs, but they were very good!).
When I came here for dessert, I had the plum mochi cake that came with
black sesame gelato. I'd have to say that it was one of the most
innovative desserts I've ever had.
