At a recent birthday celebration, the Birthday Cake was the Coffee Crunch Cake from
Yasukochi's Sweet Shop
1790 Sutter St. San Francisco

- A tender yellow cake with layers of whipped cream topped off with sweet coffee crunch chunks...
I'd tasted it before and it was way TOO sweet...but this one was just right. In fact, it was perfectly delicious with its 1:1 ratio of whipped cream:cake.
...maybe it's even better than the Lemon Crunch or the Hawaiian Delight. What coffee crunch cake sources remain since the days of Blum's? Eastern Bakery on Grant Avenue? . ..this would be a sweet taste-off at the October picnic, ...anyone interested?
Downtown Bakery in Healdsburg has made coffee crunch cake from time to time. Here's my post -
Eastern Bakery's version shows up at a lot of family parties, and it's a sad shadow of its former glory. I much prefer Yasukochi's and look forward to trying Schubert's.
Cynsa...if you think I'm going to schlep another coffee crunch cake half the size of San Francisco to the picnic...think again!!!......I weep thinking of it......however, I may go over to Japan town for lunch and pick up a small one.
Victoria Pastry Co in North Beach makes a ridiculously good coffee crunch cake... their princess cake is also out of this world.
