San Francisco City College culinary grad Cheryl Burr believes that not everything should be painted with the same (vanilla buttercream-slathered) brush. The shop offers as many frostings as cakes: you'll find espresso, praline, and coconut buttercream toppings among them. The cake is nuanced, as well, including the sea-salt inflected chocolate ganache and the dense, buttery lemon pound cake topped with cream cheese. If you fall for Burr's sweets, head next door: She also co-owns the hip SoMA diner Citizen's Band.
