today i’m taking you inside the sweetest and cheeriest place in all of san francisco. perhaps you’ve visited yourself or maybe you got a glimpse of it in victoria’s new book. with jars full of colorful confections and ribboned bags of sweets, how can you resist? this is miette and it is one of the most charming and beloved spots in the city.

miette has four locations in the bay area. the one in san francisco’s historic ferry building is full of cakes, cupcakes, cookies, macarons, confections and dessert ware. this one featured here is in the city’s hayes valley neighborhood and carries candies from all over the world (including the largest collection of licorice i’ve ever seen!) as well as treats made by local artisans. just across the bay bridge in oakland is a little shop attached to the bakery where all the pastries are made (and p.s. i’m giving you a sneak peak inside the kitchen here). and across the golden gate in marin is their latest boutique store. owner meg ray started miette in 2001 and has been providing her spin on classic american cakes and confections since. every treat is simple, delightfully delicious and made with only the freshest and finest ingredients, especially much that is local, organic and sustainably produced. as for the candy, meg and her team venture around the globe seeking, tasting and bringing back only the best for the shop. if you’re in the city, i hope you’ll want to sugar rush right on over. and if you’re visiting sf, add this sweet spot to your itinerary.

  1. I love Miette and all the colorful sweets! I have to be careful when I go into the Ferry building because I can spend the whole day eating there.
