Nice compact coffee house overlooking famous Washington Park in North Beach. Lots of great baked goods to choose from including custard and creme fillings. They bake throughout the day, but the earlier you arrive the fresher. Both inside and outside seating but not a lot....More

Our family have patronized Victoria Pastry for 3 generations! They consistently have outstanding Italian cakes i.e St. Honore and pastries made fresh hourly in the morning! You have to come by when in-town.

Oh! My! Gosh! This place is a dessert lover's dream store. My daughter, sister and I were on vacation in SF and spotted this place from across the street where we were having dinner. We hoped that it didn't close before we were finished eating!...More

Just by walking by the bakery, one can smell the aroma of baked goods. Espresso was authentic and strawberry cake was freshly made and delicious. They have a few tables outside of the bakery. Worth trying.

Biscotti melts in your mouth. They have a wonderful selection of cookies, cannolis and beautiful cakes. A must while you visit Washington square in north beach.
