Baked In The Bay: A Sweet Tooth’s Guide To San Francisco

Here are 5 best places to get your fill of baked goods. 

Don’t get too excited, by “baked” we mean the sweet, sugary goodness coming straight out of the oven! So, without further ado, here are the most delicious ways to ruin your New Year’s resolutions…

1. Tartine Bakery, Various Locations

Confectionery with a conscience. Tartine considers itself more of a platform than a bakery, with a number of locations in varying shapes and sizes, inviting innovators to rethink food, starting with intriguing, sustainable ingredients and ending with their unforgettable flavors.

📍 595 Alabama St, San Francisco, CA 94110

2. Mr. Holmes Bakehouse, Lower Nob Hill

Not every bakery has a culture co-ordinator but if Holmes is anything to go by, they probably should! Oozing fun, with white tiled interiors, accented with the pink neon signs and baking up wildly delicious creations (like the Ferrero Rocher Citrus Bun or a Miso Mushroom Danish), there is no better way to cancel that summer body.

📍 1042 Larkin St, San Francisco, CA 94109, United States

3. Jane The Bakery, Fillmore

Fill up on posh pastries with a healthy twist! Jane’s ditches the rainbow sprinkles and millennial pink madness in favor of more sophisticated, delicately crafted flavor combinations. The emphasis on herbs and other natural ingredients results in delicious treats, like the hibiscus lemon brioche seen above! Yum!

📍 1881 Geary Boulevard, San Francisco, CA 94115

4. Mochill, Japantown

Yes, the Japanese style Mochi Donuts craze is here to stay! The sticky, chewy connected wreaths of dough are so pretty that your biggest challenge will be taking the #mandatoryfoodpic before inhaling them. Warning: with crazy flavors and toppings that change monthly, it’s safe to say carbs will become a big feature in your life.

📍 1737 Post Street STE395, San Francisco, CA 94115

5. Neighbor Bakehouse, Dogpatch

Honestly, if you can get your hands on absolutely anything in this aptly named neighborhood favorite, you’re in for a treat. With most items selling out before lunchtime (especially the ‘Everything’ croissants covered in sesame seed that crackle in your mouth), it’s no surprise that the head baker, Greg Mindel, was a semi-finalist for the James Beard award for Outstanding Baker.

📍 2343 3rd Street (between 20th & 22nd), San Francisco, CA 94107
