Suggestions for whirlwind pastry tour of SF?

rmeans Dec 10, 2007 09:50 AM

I am going to be taking a friend out this Saturday for her birthday and she is just crazy for pastries. Can any of you provide suggestions on a set of three or four "don't miss" pastry shops in/around the city? As tight a grouping as possible would be nice, since I don't necessarily want to put a hundred miles on the car. :)

      I did something similar for my birthday... after lunch at Limon, we stopped at Mission Pie, then Bi-Rite Creamery for ice cream, then Tartine Bakery for a snack. Best birthday ever!!!

          Stella Pastry
          Victoria Pastry
          La Boulange (North Beach)
          Golden Gate Bakery
          XOX Truffles

          Well, that's 5, but the last is for dessert.

            am curious which place you went to ended up being the best/worst in terms of prices/selections/service. i bet your experiences varied a bit...
