Potrero Hill - Petite Patisserie Update

Tender is the Tart

Since I had the opportunity to sample a stunning box of pastries and bag full of broiche from Petite Patisserie at the weekend, I thought it was only fair to update my earlier announcement about their opening.

And because it is kind of related, and if you like French-style baked goods, - read my friend Del's description of her discovery of a perfect croissant right here in San Francisco, at Delissio.

Petite Patisserie 1415 Eighteenth Street, San Francisco 415 821 9378
Delissio 1695 Market Street, San Francisco, 415 552 5559

    Looks perfect, I'll have to give it a try, definitely!

    I hope the Delessio croissant will pass the Fred test.Crossing fingers!

    (and many thanks for the link)

    The perfect croissant, better than Delanghe, better than DeLessio, better than Tartine (my previous top 3, in that order) can be found at:

    Arlequin cafe and wine shop, next to Absinthe in Hayes Valley.

    Since it is close enough from DeLessio, I suggest you pick one up there when you perform the Fred test with DeLessio.

    Your post reminds me of the tour my brother and I got of the bakery part of Patisserie Payard (New York) a few years back.
    I recently started skipping the 'Pain au Chocolat' at my local Whole Foods as they tend to be 'overcooked' to put it nicely.

    Take care

    Del & Ced - one of these days I mean to do a comparative crossant taste test!!!

    thanks for the tips

    serge - i just can't abide chocolate in a croissant. I have some wierd aversion to breand and chocolate together although spearately i love them both more than anything.
