We found this place while walking around before Beach Blanket Babylon. We were drawn in by the pastries - which were wonderful. We also had focaccia pizza - which was good, but not outstanding. Then we saw the Nutella Latte on the menu, so we had to try it. Very good and unique. We will definitely go back.

We stumbled upon this bakery on our way to dinner in North Beach.As soon as we saw all the Italian pastries in the window, we decided to come back here for desert and were glad we did. Wonderful chocolate cake, cannoli and Expresso and a bag of cookies and biscotti for the flight home. A definite stop next time we're in North Beach.

Great pastries and coffee. A small little shop in North Beach that had a steady flow of customers but never packed which was nice. The greatest part of the shop is the staff. What a nice man that waited on us. So personable and helpful! Great place to stop!

We found Mara's pastry shop walking in North Beach after dinner! Our children were salivating at the pastries in the window, and we decided to go in to "check out" the pastries. The Almond Chocolate Biscotti was out of this world, as well as the cannoli! The staff was friendly, and Mara's is definitely something that cannot be missed!!!

Mara's is an Italian pastry shop with fancy coffees on Columbus Street in the North Beach part of town. Small with personalized service to go with many Italian pastries. Eat there or take it out and drive up to Coit Tower and eat it there with great views of the bay, Alcatraz and the Golden Gate...plus free "johns." Or, it's just a block down the street to Washington Square...great people watching there especially in the morning with groups of Chinese work out there.
