Trend-O-Meter Says: Toast In, Cupcakes Out (5/15/09)

In: Toast. It’s cheap and comforting in these hard times. Spotted at Trouble Coffee, thick-cut with cinnamon and butter; on the grill at Outerlands cafĂ©; and as an espresso accessory at Blue Bottle Coffee, all in San Francisco.

Out: Cupcakes. Now a national mall staple.
