Our darling Patisserie, in San Francisco's Ferry Building, is getting a little spruce. Some fresh paint, some sparkly new lights, new cupboards: nothing drastic, just a pretty pick-me-up. Speaking of which, a trip over to Shu Uemura on Fillmore would be nice....
The cakeshop will also be returning to its original hours:
Sunday - Friday 10am-6pm
My suggestion for a lovely evening? Make your way to the Miettegirls before they close at 6, pick up some bread & cheese from the cute boys & girls at Acme Bread & Cowgirl Creamery, and then let the beautiful baristas at Blue Bottle make you a drink*. Sip your coffee as you stroll to the streetcar, and wonder how you got lucky enough to live in San Francisco.
*All these shops stay open until 7pm. And yes, the Ferry Building crew is a good-looking bunch. I don't work there so I'm allowed to say that!
