I ordered a few cupcakes for dessert through Uber eats. The cupcakes were delicious and moist. My favourite was the pumpkin spice latte and birthday cake cupcake. Will definitely order through them again.

Amazing cupcakes! A friend threw us a baby shower and she had ordered cupcakes from Sift! Delicious and moist with so many different and interesting flavours. These cupcakes were loved by all family and friends who attended the party. A huge hit! Most loved were...the lemon, red velvet, pink raspberry champagne, bacon (Yes bacon haha) and the coconut one. Missed out on trying so many other flavors that were in the box which were devoured before mommy to be got there for it :P Very indulging stuff. Highly recommend for parties or just for personal enjoyment. Yum!More

Sift offers some good baked goods that are unique from most other bakeries. We actually ordered via Uber Eats and had it delivered right to our front door. The Cruffles - essentially en-robed mini-cakes - are to die for! Excellent and addicting. The whoopie pies...-- some were good and some (sugar cookie) we way too sweet. Either way, we will order from here again.More

Sift is your typical cupcakery - OK cupcakes that are a bit pricey. The whoopie cookies are really good, though. I would recommend the one that looks like an Oreo.

The cupcakes that we picked up at Sift are definitely a little different. I would say that the texture is more spongey than almost any other cupcake that I have ever eaten. I'm not sure why that is, and I'm not saying its bad.. its...just different. As for the icing, it was nice and sweet and a little creamier than you would normally find on a cupcake. Not a bad cupcake, but ultimately not a very good one either. The girl who rang us up was super pleasant, so thats always nice.More

The wheat free choices are great -- you can pick the flavour (red velvet, or chocolate, for example) and then also choose the icing. It's very tempting! :-)

Wanted to grab a quick sweet treat after dinner. Sift was in walking distance so we stopped on the way home from dinner. It's small with not a huge variety. I got a salted caramel macaroon and it was ok; it was a little stale....Also, I got the pink champagne & cookies and cream cruffle. They were very moist and delicious. They were different but definitely worth a try.More

Love cupcake here at sift...the cupcake itself was not too sweet and the topping and the fillings was the right amount of sweet...macaron there was good but the hi-light was surely the cupcake...

I try cupcakes in every city I travel to. This was one of three stops I made in San Francisco and it had a couple amazing cupcakes. As far as the vanilla goes, it was not my favorite out of the three. HOWEVER, their other...flavors were amazing. I had a lemon and a samoa like cupcake which were out of this world. Their frosting to cupcake ration was fairly good, and their cake was flavorful and light. It is in a great neighborhood and a perfect place to stop for dessert. They also had cookies with frosting, which were quite tasty as well.More

I'm a cupcake lover. Their wheat-free Wednesdays are delicious and the choices abundant and catchy. It's not hard to remember that Wednesday gimmick. The store is adorable and the treats delicious- I'm a huge fan of the Carmel and chocolate combination. Oh man now I...want a cupcake.More
