    1. The chocolate bread pudding at Frescati is outstanding.

        I agree. It's white and dark chocolate bread pudding with ice cream and probably my favorite dessert in the world. It certainly is the best smelling dessert in my opinion.

      2. I had an amazing mixed berry bread pudding at Bistro Jeanty in Yountville.

        1. I had a wonderful orange bread pudding at Cesar some months back, but I haven't seen it since.

            I love that one at Cesar, and I see it on their menu all the time.

              Had bread pudding at Cesar Piedmont last month. Yum, although their cookies were better. I'm not sure the cookies are on the standard menu.

          2. The bread pudding at Tartine in the Mission district is very popular.

              I didn't like Tartine's version the one time I had it, but that might be because it was cold.

              Tartine in SF and Gregoire in Berkeley are two places that rotate through many different versions of it, which is a plus.

                Mmm, when I had the bread pudding at Tartine, it was a steaming hot bowl of goodness!
