    Great cappuccinos. Lacking in food options on a weekday though

    Negi miso bun is good. But the curry bun is the winner

    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

    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.

    Watch the drip coffee actually drip while you enjoy a flaky, buttery croissant. What more do I need to say?

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

    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.

    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
