Spotted SF / Pacific Heights / B. Patisserie


After hearing so much about her extraordinary kouign amanns popping up around SF, I was so excited to hear that the owner b. (Belinda) decided to open a permanent spot—and in my neighborhood, too! However I dropped in on a Sunday afternoon and was a bit bummed to see only a few selections remained in the case. Perhaps a testament to how amazing her sweets are? But just as I ordered my cappuccino, a fresh batch of the kouign amanns were making their way out of the oven and I immediately snagged one of them. After allowing it cool off, I finally had a chance to savor one of these treats. Wow. So perfectly flaky and buttery on the outside, and a sweet and soft caramel-y inside. Now I know what the hype was all about. They’re seriously that good.
