        My favorite French patisserie in San Francisco:

          If you're willing to take a beautiful ride, Patisserie Angelica is 45 minutes up the road from you, in Sebastopol. Neither their croquembouche or buche are to be missed, and Condra also does some in holiday flavors: mocha, eggnog, pumpkin...my fave is her classic, but it's all wonderful.

              Arizmendi on 9th Ave (at Irving).
