Visited the shop as part of the Hayes Valley Gourmet walk - beautiful store to spend time in with a huge variety of chocolates, sweets and yummy cupcakes. Something for everyone

I just can't even write a review cause I start thinking about this delicious place and I drool and then my laptop starts sending sparks at places I'd rather not be sparky. Let's just say this place was amazing. I bought a pack of chocolate sables and 2 macaroons. They were both drool worthy with excellent taste. The chocolate was... More

Miette Patisserie is the candy store to beat in SF. Their macaroon selection is legendary and so creamy and delish. Cupcakes and regular cakes galore for special occasions. And small bags of almost any candy - licorice, gummies, chocolates, marzipan - under the sun. They don't have the widest selection in each category but they have curated the best of... More

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
