By Dana Eastland. Well-regarded pie pop-up ~BUTTER LOVE BAKESHOP~ has found a permanent home in the Outer Richmond, according to Scoop. The new location, from baker Esa Yonn-Brown and her husband Josh Perez, offers her classic all-butter crust pies, including savory potpies and seasonal fruit pies. There are also other pastries, including cookies, quiche, cakes, and scones made from the recipe used by the space’s former occupant, Nibs. If that’s not enough to entice you, they are also serving doughnuts, along with coffee from Mr. Espresso. 3717 Balboa St. at 38th Ave., 415-602-3988.

It’s called ~DELICIOSO CREPERIE~, and Guerrero is serving crêpes with a Latin influence.

Peek at the menu here. Hours on Mon-Fri 7am-4pm. 1550 Bryant St. at Alameda, 510-334-9967.
