Mission Minis Shut Down

Daaaaaaang.  Per Eater SF, Mission Minis has been shut down by the health department!

The cupcakery at 22nd/Capp, which opened just a few weeks ago, apparently failed to obtain the necessary permits to stay alive and kicking.  Their Twitter, however (tsk-tsks Eater!), maintains that they’re simply building a new counter.

Both the Mission location and Marina kiosk are now closed.  Looks like you’ll have to go back to eating regular-sized cupcakes.  As if you mind, tubs!

Coming Soon: Mission Minis Retail Store


The word on the street is that Mission Minis, the golf-cart delivering organic cupcake bakers, will be opening up a retail store at 3168 22nd Street (between Capp and Mission).  I tried to reach them by phone to corroborate and get more details, but they are treating me like a drunk girl from the bar and not returning my calls.  Tears.  (link)

UPDATE: Mission Minis owner, Brandon, just gave us a shout.  They are aiming to open October 1st (permits willing) and they’ll be selling about 8 flavors a day, almost all for a $1.  They even have vegan and gluten-free flavors, including a vegan banana cake / maple glaze that SOUNDS AMAZING.


"So, is it a Sweet Ride?"


I was stoked to see more non-hallucinogenic pastries being sold in Dolores Park this weekend but was shocked to discover that it wasn’t being done illegally.  Permits?  What?  You mean I’m paying tax n’ shit for cupcakes?  My world is crushed.

But seriously, the cupcake I had was incredibly delicious.  And, most importantly, the truck has spinning-hubcaps, which pretty much makes it the most awesome thing this side of Twin Peaks.
