While I only tried the palmier pastry, I highly recommend it! Delicate layers of golden flakiness, crunchy and beautiful. A request to the bakers: please jump on the trend bandwagon and serve up some Kouign Amann! I'm sure you'll create similarly perfect layers of pastry!

OMG! I have never tasted such perfection in such a little bite. We were on an "Edible Excursion" (what a great tour). Loved this place!

I guess I was drawn to Miette in the very crowded Ferry building during lunchtime on vacation. I needed something to go and the Macarons looked heavenly. I order 2 each, I know crazy! Each of them were delicious and very sweet. They kept well also. I definitely recommend!

If you have a sweet tooth, and Twinkies is not what you had in mind, then this is the place to try real French pastries. Not inexpensive, but worth the price. Miette, as they say, just "takes the cake" when it comes to sweets.

We've been here several times now, and have never been disappointed. From fresh cookies to decadent cakes - this is one place where the food tastes every bit as good as it looks!

The most delicious macarons. Perfect little bites. Try the grapefruit ones, you will not be disappointed.

Cute store, nice packaging, great customer service. A little pricy. We were in the Ferry Building walking around. There were some beautiful macarons. I picked 3 different flavors to try. I didn't love the ones I tried, but maybe other flavors would have been better.

This was by far my favorite place in the ferry building. I recommend the freshly made caramels and trying a few different types of cake to go. I'm hoping to re-create these with the help of their recipe book available in store!

Everything is delicious there! Try to get there early. Items sell out fast. Cupcakes are great and so are the full size cake.
