The ferry building shops aren't as "touristy" as one might think, even though they're next to the port. They're more 'street market meets gourmet' foodie-style and pretty much fabulous. Miette Cakes was a great find as I was picking up some gift treats. The macarons (I think there were six varieties but my favorites were the pistachio and hazelnut) were delicious and my friend really enjoyed the salted caramels. The macarons were perfect - plenty of rich, creamy interior and gently flexible cookie exterior that didn't make a flakey mess when they were savored in multiple bites. I only wish I'd bought more. Thankfully, you can also buy online.
