The second location of famed croissant-maker ARSICAULT BAKERY has opened in Civic Center, an offshoot of the original Inner Richmond location. But now, owner Armando Lacayo has much more production space to work with, which means he’ll be expanding the current lineup of croissants, croissants, kouign amanns, and chocolate chip cookies to include tarts, quiches, napoleons, and sandwiches on housemade baguettes and country loaves. But first, he wants to settle in to the new location and make sure everything is coming out perfectly. Visitors will find some seating, with more coming outdoors soon. And for now, less of a line. Open Mon-Fri 7am-2pm. 87 McAllister St. at Leavenworth. [Via Chronicle]
Meanwhile, the taker for the Marla Bakery space in the Outer Richmond has been revealed: the Outer Sunset’s DEVIL’S TEETH BAKING COMPANY is going to be opening a second location! Owner Hilary Passman will be bringing her famed biscuit breakfast sandwiches, quiches, and other baked goods for breakfast and lunch service. Look for an opening in February, more details soon. 3619 Balboa St. at 37th Ave. [Via Eater.]
If you’ve been craving the wood-fired bagels (and butter) from DAILY DRIVER, but find the Dogpatch location a little tough to get to, you can now pick some up at their new bagel shop in the Ferry Building Marketplace. You’ll also find their housemade cream cheese, quark, wood-fired pretzels, simple bagel sandwiches, and coffee from Red Bay Coffee.
But this pop-up isn’t at a kiosk: they’re using a 1984 Chevy shorty panel van that rolls out every morning and rolls back in at night. (The team donates a portion of sales to Project Wreckless, an auto shop in The Bayview that teaches at-risk kids the craft of restoring old cars.) They are exploring options to build out a permanent space in the Ferry Building, but for now, the van shop is open every day from 6am to 6pm.
