Blue Bottle Cafe @ SFMOMA Rooftop Garden - Anyone try the desserts (my pics)?
When I asked the lady working there where the desserts were from the lady said they are made in the kitchen in the back. They look good, but I didn't try them. Anyone?
These are the desserts I saw:
Robert Frank Orange Whip $5 - just a drawing of a tall mug
vanilla bean ice cream, orange sorbet, citrus soda
Katharina Fritsch ice cream sandwich $5
chocolate shortbread, vanilla ice cream
Thiebaud Cake $5 - buttercake, lemon curd, raspberry buttercream
Cookie plate $6- double chocolate; saffron & vanilla snickerdoodle; sesame absinthe cigar; spicy gingersnap; rosemary pinenut shortbread
Mondrian cake $8 - vanilla cake, red velvet cake, chocolate ganache
Chocolate pudding - Valrhona chocolate $5
I got an Affogato $5.75 - w/ tax $6.30 - ice cream from Humphry Slocombe in a cup w/ espresso. I liked the ice cream, espresso is strong.
I've had two of the cookies at the other Blue Bottle locations:
- saffron and vanilla snickerdoodle: really bad. The flavor combination makes it taste stale.
- double chocolate chip: excellent.
So, if you order the cookie plate, I recommend asking them if they can substitute the snickerdoodle for another double chocolate.
FYI: If you have a student ID, then admission to SFMOMA is free.
