Whether you’re having a party or just looking for a quick, sweet stop, it’s hard to go wrong with Cava and Cakes. This little shop serves up gorgeous custom cakes for birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers, and more. They’re also an open storefront featuring gorgeous little cupcakes, coffee, and drinks (from Prosecco to champagne) for drop-in customers. 

When you first walk up, you’ll be greeted by a chic storefront in a little strip of businesses just a couple of blocks away from San Rosa Beach. The interior is sleek, open, and airy, with a mermaid mural on one wall, fun pink signage, and wine bottle decor gracing the backdrop. This is a favorite local spot for coffee get-togethers among friends, but it’s also a fun, memorable alternative to the busier big-name coffee shops on a day of exploring San Rosa Beach. 

Some of the most popular menu items include:

Cava and Cakes is perhaps best known for their cupcakes. Each one is a piece of art in its own right, with impeccable finishing touches and buttercream frosting that’s really hard to beat. They always have a variety of cupcakes in the front display case for drop-in customers. The hardest part might be choosing which one. Available flavors always vary depending on the day, but you’re sure to find something you love, whether you’re a chocolate aficionado or someone who prefers light vanilla or fruity flavors. 

Espresso Drinks 
Sometimes you just need an excellent latte to start the day. From lattes to cappuccinos to espresso shots, you’ll find it here, and they’re reliably good, despite the fact that this is more of a cake boutique than a coffee shop. You’ll also find drip coffee and excellent iced coffees here, so if you’re in the area, it might make sense to skip the coffee shop and head to Cava and Cakes instead. 

For a truly indulgent get-together with friends, it’s hard to go wrong with both cupcakes and champagne. Choose from a variety of adult beverages to complement your sweet treat, kick back, and enjoy yourself. 

Custom Cakes 
Celebrating an anniversary, birthday, or another event while you’re on vacation? Cava and Cakes has you covered. They often work from inspirational pictures, and they’ll talk to you about your ideas to ensure you have just the cake you want for your celebration. Their cakes are as beautiful as they are delicious; the capable chefs and decorators somehow manage to nail the flavor and design every time. 

Cava and Cakes is located among a small strip of businesses on Spires Lane, two blocks from Ed Walline Regional Beach Access. You’ll find plenty of parking adjacent to the storefront, or you can easily walk from the beach or from many of the nearby vacation rentals.
