Conference go-er at Moscone in need of pastry/baked good to bring back on flight

I'm in town for a conference until tomorrow at Moscone and am hoping to bring a dozen of SF's finest pastry-type thing back home for a meeting tomorrow morning. Anything walking distance from Moscone? Does SF have a trademark pastry it's known for? Thanks!

  1. iconic San Francisco pastry or baked goods? This will be a curiosity to see what cream rises to the top - and travels well until the next day. We could rename it the Beyond Sourdough thread.
    Near Moscone is Beard Papa with cream puffs but they do not travel at all - except hand to mouth. At the Ferry Building: Acme Bread and Cowgirl Creamery for bread and cheese. Miette Patisserie at the Ferry Building has macaroons or Bon Jour Patisserie at 655 Townsend (too far from Moscone Center). Morning Buns at Tartine - also too far from Moscone. Cupcakes are everywhere and not definitive. I can't remember an outstanding coffee cake near Moscone but there must be a hidden gem nearby for you to uncover!
    Frankly, I'd take Liguria Bakery's focaccia from North Beach - also, too far from Moscone. Keep searching!
