Some people might think they cakes are weird, but Miette has opened my mouth to new flavors and dessert ideas.

I did some shopping at the Ferry Building, With the Christmas holiday coming up, Miette Patisserie had a good variety of cookies, cakes, and candies. Its a fun place to shop at.

We had taken the ferry over and explored the local shops there in the Ferry Building when we found Miette Confections. Everything looked so good! YUMM. Their cakes looked amazing. We purchased a rich, solid chocolate one, small but looked good, for a pricey $35. The staff was so nice they held it for us so we didn't have to... More

Nice selection of sweets. The cupcakes are delicious. The only exception is the Old-fashioned Cupcake, which has a mound of marshmallow-like frosting that's sweeter than any candy I've ever tasted. I couldn't stand its overly sweetness that I threw it away after two bites. With $3.25 each cupcake, I mind as well buy myself a bag of marshmallow to munch... More

Everything looked really good but we tried two different cakes and neither was very good. Not much flavor and a bit dry.

I had the vanilla tomboy cake and it was really good. I love how they put attention on the details, the cake decor is really simple but pretty.

Best macaroons we've ever tasted and a terrific collection of other sweets. We stop here every time we visit.

I just can't even write a review cause I start thinking about this delicious place and I drool and then my laptop starts sending sparks at places I'd rather not be sparky. Let's just say this place was amazing. I bought a pack of chocolate sables and 2 macaroons. They were both drool worthy with excellent taste. The chocolate was... More

Miette Patisserie is the candy store to beat in SF. Their macaroon selection is legendary and so creamy and delish. Cupcakes and regular cakes galore for special occasions. And small bags of almost any candy - licorice, gummies, chocolates, marzipan - under the sun. They don't have the widest selection in each category but they have curated the best of... More
