{Sweet Treats} Miette Patisserie in San Francisco

I love candy shops.  The bright colors and numerous sweet treats never fail to make me smile.  When visiting San Francisco's Ferry Plaza Marketplace, I like checking out Miette Patisserie.  Not only do they sell everything from cupcakes to macarons, but they beautifully present their products on cute dishes and glass jars.  It's a great inspiration for dessert tables at parties.  I'm definitely going to have to throw a party with this "candy shop" theme in mind!  Happy Monday!

Tempting cupcakes, including (according to the Food Network), the best cupcake in America: The Gingerbread Cupcake ($3.25) made with a dark stout beer, molasses, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon and cardamom then topped with a sweet cream cheese frosting.
Though they have a few locations, we visited the Miette Patisserie that's located in the Ferry Plaza Marketplace.

  1. I used to have one of these in my neighborhood! Picking up dry cleaning and going to pilates was always a sweet treat if it means I had an excuse to stop in for a macaron or cupcake. Sadly, they closed the Marina location in January. But on a happier note, my summer intern got me a thank you gift of a bunch of sweets from Miette in the Ferry Building - so thoughtful!

  2. Yes, I think it's time to change the saying from "like a kid in a candy store" to "like a food blogger in a candy store".
