This little shop in the Ferry Building has some excellent cakes and cookies. They look beautiful and taste even better. On two visits, we tried a little chocolate cake and a slice of coconut cake. We enjoyed every bite.

Were introduced to Miette by a friend on our first visit to San Francisco several years ago. The gingersnaps are heavenly and we actually order them every year at Christmas to ship to the east coast and give as gifts. A little pricey, but worth...More
