Macarons and cupcakes oh my!

I have had this on my foodie bucket list for awhile and I'm so glad I came! The macarons were absolutely delicious (I tried the pistachio and dulce de leche both worth it) they are also larger than what most bakeries sell.. I also bought the gingerbread cupcake and it also was very good! The ladies... read more

I once summered as a pastry chef and ever since I am a pastry snob -- I walk out of most shops w/o a purchase. Miette is the real deal. The eclair are perfection and the chocolate mousse cake was very good. I would have liked to try about 5 other items, but was just too full.

We had booked a tour which departed from the ferry building, and we had arrived early so we had time to look around. We were tempted by all of the ice cream on offer (in the ferry bldg), and settled on the poshest ice cream sandwiches we've ever had at Miette. They were $5 each, but worth it as the... More

The rose-geranium macarons were absolutely amazing! I would put them on par with Pierre Herme in Paris...a unique flavor and a new but delicious texture. I also tried the raspberry and chocolate lavender, both of which were also very good. As macarons are usually expensive, I found these to be fairly reasonable (cheaper than those at my hometown favorite in... More

Some of the best pastries SF had to offer. My daughter is a macaron lover and absolutely loved all of the treats. The lavender cookies were everyone's favorites

Every time I hang out in the Ferry Building I pass this place by because of the long lines. I finally arrived late just before a lot of stores closed and found no lines so I picked up a package of Walnut Shortbread Cookies, and they were great! I ate them in two days! Which is fast for someone avoiding... More

A pleasant little store in the market with plenty of macaroons and other sweet treats. The ice cream sandwich came in three flavours, we tried the creme fraiche and it was to die for, with a cookie rich in butter and an ice cream extremely fresh and light.

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.
