We are missing our Europe trip this year due to the pandemic so we stopped by to get some great pastry. We got a slice of princess cake a small tiramisu. Both are excellent, not overly sweet, moist, and just like what we would get...in Europe. This is delicate dessert not sweet dessert, which is how we like it. I would love to get one thing each on the menu but I am not sure my body could accept it!More

Been coming here for years since it was at Vallejo and Powell. Unfortunately, it seems that the quality and service has really gone down. Not sure if there is a new owner or it was the COVID19 that cause it, but the workers manning the...store do not even know how to make a decent espresso, plus they have no personality whatsoever. The cookies and cake can’t even compare to other bake shops in the area. Very sad.More

When we decided to take the steep walk up Filbert St to Coit Tower, we spotted this wonderful Pastry Shop and had a delicious treat and coffee before our hike. They have a great selection of cookies and pastries with tables inside and outside. Easy...to find...just across the street from the park on Filbert St.More

Great cakes at reasonable prices. Coffee there with almond milk shouldnt be missed too. Nice place to sit outside and eat your cake and sip coffee while watching the world go by.

The cappuccino was very good. Unfortunately the carrot cake was more icing than cake and the thin layer of cake was very dry. The chocolate fedora had too much cream and was nothing special. The cafe looks a bit run down. The back storage /...production room is in full view of the clients which looks untidy. No decor.More

This is the best cappuccino we found in North Beach! Like a trip to Rome in a mug. They also have delicious biscottis and desserts. I wish we lived nearby.

The pastry were good, but not Italian type. If you are visiting San Francisco and go to NorthBeach area and want Italian pastry’s this is not the place, But if you just want something sweet this is it

i love italian cookies and the amaretti pignoli here are the bomb. i tried the choco hazelnut ones and a few others, all very good. $22.95 a pound. I did think Dianda's on Mission was better and a little cheaper.

This was recommended by tour driver. Wow! The cookies here were delicious! We tried about 5 different ones, but the one with almonds on it and flavored were sooooo good!

A nice little pastry shop. A small (3 tables) seating section inside, and if the weather is good, another 3 tables outside. My daughter had the cream puff and I had a couple of different cookies. All were great.
