B. Patisserie is a great place in San Francisco for coffee and pastries. We especially like the signature Kouign Amann.
The Breton pastry features buttery puff pastry layers surrounding a surprising liquid sugar center. It’s buttery heaven on the outside with sugary pleasure inside.
Since we were staying at the Kimpton Triton next to Chinatown, we were about two miles away. For us, that was a perfect distance for a morning walk.
In addition to flaky croissants, tarts, and brioche-based pastries, there was a fine selection of sophisticated desserts on display.
From miniature layer cakes to shimmering chocolate ganache domes, fruit verrines and Hermé inspired grand macarons.
The choices were plentiful and tempting. We chose three treats to share. Plus, we each got a café au lait made with Four Barrel Coffee, a popular local coffee roaster.
Since there was no WiFi, we instead focused on the conversation, not to mention the delicious pastries and coffee.
In addition to the pastries and desserts, partner Michel Suas prepares baguettes and sandwiches. We abstained from the savory options since our afternoon plans included a super burrito.
