Just the Lovliest Bakery I have ever been to. The cookies, cakes and pot de creme is outrageous. Everything is packaged perfectly in the cutest bags with perfectly even size cookies. The beautiful cookbook has all the recipies and the colorful photos make you want to bake a cake.

What a gem in the heart of the Ferry Building. First time visitor to Miette. Biggest dilemma was what to try first. Variety of cupcakes, macaroons, cookies, candies on display. All items priced accordingly. Bought 2 macaroons to sample; great variety of flavours to choose from. Macaroons were outstanding and yummy!!! Purchased ginger snap and chocolate sable cookies to take... More

The macarons here are amazing. I was in Paris last year and of course had macarons from Lauradee when I was there, and these stand up to those. The flavor options are perfect and I kept changing my mind on which was my favorite. Chocolate, pistachio, and vanilla were all incredible. The packaging is adorable as well which just adds... More

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 behind the counter were... 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
