Any excellent Buche de Noels in San Francisco, other than Tartine Bakery? Also, Croquembouches?

Thanks in advance

  1. Not in SF, but La Bedaine in Berkeley.

    1. Have not tried but here's another choice, preordering info.

        1. 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, fave is her classic, but it's all wonderful.

          1. Spotted buche de Noel in case at Thorough Bread this afternoon.
