Two of San Francisco's best sweet shops are just around the corner from each other in Hayes Valley.
In this video by GloboMaestro.com, San Francisco expert Antonio Barrios — head concierge at The St. Regis San Francisco — takes you to the charming cake-and-candy shop Miette. Here you'll find an incomparable collection of nostalgia treats, a trove of small-batch, boutique sweets, and organic baked goods. (In fact, owner Meg Ray has just published her first cookbook, The Miette Bakery Cookbook.)
A stone's throw from Miette is one of only two Christopher Elbow chocolate boutiques in the country. Antonio shows us just why Elbow's artisanal chocolates are worth seeking out.
