Rice-A-Roni, A San Francisco Treat…well we didn’t eat Rice-A-Roni while we were there but we ate several delectable treats for sure! We absolutely loved San Francisco and were amazed at all there is to do & see there not to mention great food! Today I will share all our fun dessert places that we visited and then look for our other eats next week!
We found this gem by accident in Ghiardelli Square. Adam is in love with cupcakes and we couldn’t find a cupcake place near where we were staying, but while on our double decker tour he spotted their cupcake logo from afar and we came back later to find it. This place was phenomenal! Turns out Kara has been on Top Chef: Just Desserts and Food Network’s Cupcake Wars! Jackpot!!
Adam got the Strawberry Creme and I got the Chocolate Velvet and then we split them. Both cakes were so light and moist! The strawberry had strawberry curd filling which was out of this world and the chocolate velvet’s frosting was so light but bursting with flavor! We loved this place so much we even found their cupcake truck and their other location so we ate one of Kara’s Cupcakes three days in a row!:)
We split the passion fruit cupcake from their Cupcake Truck. We liked the other two we tried better but this one was still great.
One of my favorite places we visited was the Ferry Market Building! It had so many great restaurants and stores and this cute little French Bakery, miette pattiserie.
This was my first time to try a macaron which I have been dying to try!! We tried the pistachio (on the far right) and it was so great!! I am a new macaron fan for sure! I don’t even like pistachio, but it really just tasted like an amped up vanilla. The cream filling was fantastic and I loved the texture of the macaron.
If you are in San Francisco on a Saturday, you have GOT to go to the Ferry Market Building in the morning for their Farmer’s Market. It was AWESOME!! Vendor after vendor of fresh produce and restaurants and bakeries. The picture above was from a booth of a bakery in Healdsburg.
This was probably one of the best things we had the entire trip. It looks unassuming but it’s the best donut I’ve ever had!! So pillowy and soft and the custard filling I could’ve eaten an entire bowl of with a spoon! Found this inside the Ferry Market Building during the Farmer’s Market.
Cafe Greco was a great bakery & breakfast place in Little Italy that I found on yelp.com. So cute and you could sit outside. They even had a bowl of water for dogs!:)
Adam had this and I don’t remember the name of it but it was filled with a citrus curd and I think I ate more of it than he did 😉 So amazing and flaky and soft!!
I got this almond croissant that was also really good, but I did like Adam’s better. We also shared a White Hot Chocolate that was fabulous!!
Wonderful desserts, and now I am definitely on a detox after all that sugar! Haha…not really:) SF Eats coming soon….
