    Delicious sweet treat with perfectly ripe fruit and slightly sweetened cheese. Take your treats and sit on a bench to watch the locals stroll by or head up to the top of Bernall Hill. Read more

    The bernal sweet rolls are the bomb if you don't want a very decadent pastry. You have a choice between Ritual and De La Paz coffee and both are excellent.P.S. It closes at 3 pm. Read more

    This is one of the best pastry shops in the city, and the weather is usually nice on bernal, so it's a good weekend destination.

    HELLA good Chai. Unsweetened. Add some raw sugar and you are good to go. Also, didn't have a pastry, but they looked amazing. Cool vibe, even for a coffee haus.

    Out of a one-time motorcycle repair shop, former Slanted Door pastry chef Mutsumi Takehara bakes fantastic French pastries (some with an Asian twist).

    Excellent cappuccino, matcha, and eccentric baked items. Always fresh and different every week, a regular snack spot.

    Cute local spot on Cortland that makes a tasty mocha. Their donuts are also quite substantial. Barely made it half way through one (which means more donut for later)

    Staff picks: yuzu marmalade, negi miso, curry pan. Come early and get them fresh out of the oven!

    Very very very good drip coffee, the best this side of Blue Bottle. Take it black, with a Morning Bun on the side.

    Sweet coffee and Asian-inspired pastries. If you're lucky, they'll still have tofu-rice cake sandwiches for sale.

    Many delicious chocolate-and-bread options. Face is still the chocolate banana heart, but the chocolate cinnamon twist is also fantastic.
