San Francisco Bakery: Miette

My mom got really into The Next Iron Chef this year and she was a huge fan of Elizabeth Falkner. So when I suggested we go to San Francisco for the day when I was home, it was a given that we would be hitting up Citizen Cake

But then Citizen Cake was closed. It might be closed permanently- it's kind of hard to tell.  

And so, we needed a bakery replacement. Good thing I visited Miette last year with Gabs so I could take my mom and sis there instead.


I'm kind of obsessed with this place. I mean, it's more of a candy shop that also serves cupcakes, macarons, and ice cream than a bakery, but just look at it.

It's so cute inside it almost didn't matter if the cupcakes and macarons were actually any good...

... but they were. The cupcakes were certainly not the best I've ever had, but they were enjoyable and the macarons were flavorful and the correct consistency: slightest crunch on the outside of the cookie, chewy on the inside.

Would it be weird if I redecorated my apartment to look like Miette? Good, cuz I'm going to do it.
