The counter o’ treats at Devil’s Teeth Baking Company.
One of my “Outside Lands” dwellers tipped me off that ~DEVIL’S TEETH BAKING COMPANY~ is now open on Noriega at 46th Street. I had a chance to speak with owner Hilary Cherniss, who is finally open after a “looong ride.” On the menu: house-baked muffins, scones, cookies, cinnamon rolls, bread pudding, pie, and there’s a breakfast sandwich with egg, bacon, and cheddar on a biscuit; lunch brings soup, quiche, curried chicken salad, and lasagne. Oh, and let’s not overlook “beignet Sundays.” There is also Blue Bottle Coffee (no espresso, however).
It’s a very tiny space, with only a few seats inside, so don’t plan on being able to linger for hours with your friends, although there is a beautiful bar made of bay laurel (Cherniss is hoping to get approval for some seating outside). Oh, and about that name: as Ocean Beach Bulletin noted last winter, it’s “a nickname for the Farallones, the chain of islands west of Ocean Beach visible on clear days.” Opening hours are Wed-Mon 7am-2pm, closed Tuesdays; depending on the needs of the neighborhood, she may open for longer hours. 3876 Noriega St. at 46th St.
The reader also mentions there’s a new Mediterranean place that opened at 3848 Judah St. at 44th Ave., but details are sketchy at this time.
