Not cheap by any means, but extremely tasty shortbread cookies and ridiculous gummy fruits. Buttery cookies and intense flavors in the gummies.

This is the cutest bakery - and some of the best baked goods. Cookies and cupcakes were very good and a great selection of flavors of french macaroons (my personal favorite at this bakery). Cutest packaging of cookies which I brought back to friends as gifts.

What a cute place! We tried the grapefruit and chocolate macarons and the old fashioned cupcake-- all were wonderful! I loved that you could see the almond pieces in the macs and they were not as cloyingly sweet as the ones I am used to. The shells had such a perfect consistency. And oh that chocolate cupcake! I have the... More

We had taken the ferry over and explored the local shops there in the Ferry Building when we found Miette Confections. Everything looked so good! YUMM. Their cakes looked amazing. We purchased a rich, solid chocolate one, small but looked good, for a pricey $35. The staff was so nice they held it for us so we didn't have to... More

Nice selection of sweets. The cupcakes are delicious. The only exception is the Old-fashioned Cupcake, which has a mound of marshmallow-like frosting that's sweeter than any candy I've ever tasted. I couldn't stand its overly sweetness that I threw it away after two bites. With $3.25 each cupcake, I mind as well buy myself a bag of marshmallow to munch... More

Everything looked really good but we tried two different cakes and neither was very good. Not much flavor and a bit dry.

I had the vanilla tomboy cake and it was really good. I love how they put attention on the details, the cake decor is really simple but pretty.
