Wow, this place looks HOT. You had us at “Japanese cold slow drip and Siphon”. Blue Bottle, watch out, these guys are on your heels. Norwegian roaster Wendelboe coffee??? Really??? MUS•e•YUM is on it. Look for a first hand report, soon.

And as if that isn’t enough, they serve pastries by one of our favorite bakeries, Sandbox, and we won’t have to travel nearly so far to get them, anymore. Sigh. And local cheese.

Check it out (here’s a link to the Ma*Velous Website) and if you get there first, let us know what you think, please!

Now, didn’t I tell you that that cocoa nib wafer by Goody Goodie was HOT??

(Link to cocoa wafer and utter assorted cookie bliss.)

Thanks Jonathan Kauffman for another fine roundup, with Cocoa Nib Wafer coming in at #2, and featuring my current favorite folks, Goody Goodie, Pinkies, Knead and Sandbox.  Heck, I’ve been to Baker and Banker too, had two cookies and a scone, and will have a review up soon. (–>the topline: very good but . . . dang, it sets you back a few!)

best san francisco bakeries series: Sandbox

Sandbox is a phenomenal bakery, located in Bernal Heights, SF on Cortland St.

Sandbox is a phenomenal bakery, located in Bernal Heights, SF on Cortland St.

Bernal Heights is a neighborhood that is off the beaten path for many San Franciscans, and it’s largely unknown to tourists. Located in the hills to the south of the Mission District and SOMA, this neighborhood has preserved a quiet and some might say quirky lifestyle that makes it unique, a blend of bohemians, horticulturists and foodies, eco-yuppie types and other kinds of latte-drinking liberals. The oldest and best ‘still-running’ farmer’s market in San Francisco is found here every Saturday and after hitting that, or maybe before hitting that, I have another destination for you: Sandbox Bakery.

The owner is a veteran of some high profile establishments here in the Bay Area, including La Farine, Chez Panisse and the Slanted Door, and she brings a high standard to the baking here, which is evident in the food. And yes, on second thought the earlier you can get here the better. This bakery makes everything fresh daily and in small batches. The first time I made a visit, it had closed early at about 1pm; they’d sold out of everything! Of course, my visit was within a week of an article in the New York Times, featuring Sandbox, so I’m sure that had everything to do with it. The secret hath left the bag. Now, I go early!

By the way, everything I’ve ever had there is perfect. They’re known for their croissants and scones, and japanese pastries. In the end I say, get whatever you want in full  confidence;-)
