There are also macaron ice cream sandwiches and wines by the glass. Open Mon-Sat 10am-8:30pm, Sun 10am-7pm. 865 Market St. (Level 4 Under the Dome).
After waiting to find out what was moving into the vacant Crepe & Coffee location on California Street, the Scoop announced pastry whiz Belinda Leong will be opening a brick-and-mortar location of her ~B. PATISSERIE~. Also exciting: she is partnering with “Michel Suas, owner of TMB Baking Co. and Thorough Bread, co-founder of San Francisco Baking Institute and a guy with 45 years of experience.” Yeah, the whiz is working with the wizard. Look for a hoped-for opening by the end of the year. 2821 California St. at Divisadero.
