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.

Visited Miette Cakes in the indoor market area of the ferry building. Great chocolates, candies and cakes - I purchased the candies as a special treat as it is easy to transport.

Miette, Miette, I don't regret. I saw your sign when first we met. Devine your cookies and great your cakes: the Scharffen Berger! my heart it breaks! And even closer to my beating heart is your execution of your Lemon Tart!

My piece of chocolate cake was wonderful. Filling and ganache were great. This is a carryout place in the Ferry Building so no dine in option but the patio nearby was sunny and a nice place to enjoy my cake.

I only had the one, but it was delicious. Chocolate with buttercream frosting. And not too sweet the way some cakes and icing can be. Just right. Perfectly moist. Will definitely stop by again next time I'm in town.
