Fillmore Bakeshop Now Open

A tablehopper reader let me know that the former Patisserie Delanghe on Fillmore Street has been replaced by ~FILLMORE BAKESHOP~, with the father-daughter team of Douglas and Elena Basegio running the show. Both of them were trained in Switzerland, and some may know Doug from the Woodside Bakery and Cafe (he was there for 20 years). Their style is contemporary European-American, with cakes, tarts, pastries, cookies, pies, seasonal items, and wedding cakes, all made from scratch. Some specialties on the menu include their danishes, like a popular blueberry-cream cheese version that sells out each morning, and an almond-pear croissant. For those wondering, yes, you can still get princess cakes and profiteroles here. The interior has also been updated; there are six seats, with more coming soon. Hours are Tue-Fri 7am-6pm, Sat 8am-6pm, and Sun 8am-4pm. 1890 Fillmore St. at Bush, 415-923-0711.
