Spotted SF / TenderNob / Lotta’s Bakery & Sweet Antiques


I stumbled on this gem on a random walk down lower Polk Street. I saw the striped pink awning and immediately thought: just another bake shop. Boy was I surprised! This shop was filled with classic baked goodies in the front and stocked high with vintage treasures towards the back. But you wouldn’t really know that unless you walked in. I stayed longer than anticipated, admiring every item while chatting up the lady at the counter, the baker, and a couple of their regular customers. All sweethearts! And the apple cranberry crumble I picked up to enjoy later at home was truly one of the best I’ve ever had.
