Sorry to say, this place was a bit of a letdown. We were in the Santa Rosa area for a night, and my daughter with the gourmet sweet tooth had heard of the Sift Dessert Bar and wanted to try it out. Alas, the selection was quite limited, the prices were really steep, the cupcakes very good but certainly not... More

I'd read about this place on TripAdvisor. I love a good bakery. The website boasted many choices. I was disappointed. They only had cupcakes and a few macaroons to choose from. I was interested in brownies and lemon bars, but they had none. I did get a cupcake. It was good, just not what I'd had in mind when I... More

If you are dining in the downtown area this is a great "after" treat. Cupcakes are large enough to split. Or with several people cut into pieces and share the variety.

While on travel with friends, we had need to pick up a birthday cake. Based upon internet research, we selected Sift. The cake we eventually picked up (champagne) was off-the-charts good. The sponge was perfect, the flavor profile was perfectly balanced, and the presentation (flower petals) had all the polish of a wedding cake. Do go here; you won't regret... More

The cupcakes in here are to die for. The chocolate one with cream in the middle and chocolate buttercream frosting is the BEST! Every cupcake I've had here is delicious and you can tell they use good ingredients. My favorite place for a treat when I'm in downtown Santa Rosa.

Can't go wrong choosing any of their fabulous flavors every one is absolute perfection, from plain vanilla to S'mores, to their sweet Pink Champagne...I came home scouring cookbooks to try and get close to the perfect texture of the cake in their delicious treats. The staff is great the shop is adorable and the cupcakes knock it out of the... More

We had the 14 Carat Carrot Cake cupcake and the Red Velvet. Both were VERY good. The service was exceptional and the place was very clean.

Cute little shop for excellent cupcakes, cookies, and other sweets. A fairly good variety of cupcakes and cookies. Cute sayings on their takeout boxes. Not the most comfortable chairs, hard slick plastic, and small tables. They are probably more geared for takeout. Fair prices for deluxe desserts.

Always do we pick up an assortment of these most "sinful" cupcakes. They can"sift and stir" your tastebuds on a magical exciting carpet ride. Sometimes I like the 24 carrot because it reminds me of my 5th or 7th miss piggy carrot birthday cake. Or I will go for the red velvet. Pure decadence. Naming only a few of the... More
