    Cheesecake is one of the best, and unlike any others. It's light, fluffy, and smooth with a speculoos crust. Comes out around 10-11am, and is expensive at $6 a slice. Recommend eating it at room temp.

    Great neighborhood bakery! The croissants and tarts are always good and they server sight glass coffee! Lotsy of space to sit down. Perfect SoMa bakery for light and bright morning coffee + pastries.

    Start your morning with a breakfast foccacia and pastry along with unlimited refills on your coffee as you sit on the bleachers and people watch! Inspiration will kick in for the day!

    Perfect for breakfast. Great espresso only matched by its delicious selection of quiche, egg focaccia & pastries. There's no wi-fi so come here to read, enjoy the space & check out the kitchen at work

    Beautiful space with high ceilings, good (Sightglass) espresso drinks, unique fruit-based seltzer drinks and, the stars of the show, high-quality French pastries, savory items and entrees, all pricey.

    My new favorite bakery in town. Amazing pastries, quiches, tartes and coffee. Great for casual meetings or enjoying a great breakfast or lunch with friends and family. Highly recommended!

    I know my coffee and this place has one of the best. Don't miss out on the baked goods! This mocha croissant set a new standard for me when it comes to croissants lol. Finger licking good.

    Great space, almost hipster like Melbourne Australia. Lovely croissanterie items (hazelnut croissant was delish, berry Danish too), range of quiches, tarts (fruit, espresso creme etc) and foccacias.

    Gourmet sweet and savory pastries: great for breakfast, coffee dates, and light reading. Might ask to have your pastry warmed a little longer than standard as mine was cold in the middle.

    Sweet and savory tarts, warm jelly doughnuts, Sightglass coffee, and modernized "California feel," danishes made with basil custard and red rhubarb.

    Mushroom flatbread was great, though larger than I needed it to be! Quiche With fennel, broccoli and bacon came in second between the two.

    Broccoli fennel quiche not super flavorful, but the plum danish was incredible - flaky, creamy, just a bit tart. Tea selection truly unique, and the space is beautiful.

    The cream filled doughnuts are delicious. Crispy, yet not overwhelmingly sweet. The cream is delicious.

    Try the iced café tonic. Double shot of espresso served over ice with citrus hints of orange zest and fizzy Q Tonic water.
