Beautiful array of treats

I've only been to the Ferry Building location - there the display looks like an old fashioned European bakery with great cupcakes, cookies, and many other treats. Wonderful presentation and taste!

We purchased a lemon tartlet, a brownie, a chocolate tart with sea salt and a carrot cupcake, among all we preferred the carrot cake, the brownie was to cakey for us and the lemon tart toooo sweet.

Cute little shop in the ferry building. Lots of yummy things to tempt you. I tried several of their macarons. All were great. Dulce de leche was my favorite. Want to try some of their other things next time.

Love their pistachio macaroon! The best I've had! I also tried their vanilla bean marshmallow, which is good. Some sour candies and matcha candies which are very tasty. Turkish delight is so so, I've had better. Bought a few boxes of ginger cookies for souvenir, the packaging is very nice. Staff not too friendly. Pricey overall.

We visited the Hayes location and were served by fun, friendly staff! Nothing really special to the treat we tasted- not outstanding like at Tartine but a fun stop if you are in the district.

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.
