Four Things to Know About Lotta’s Bakery
Earl Darny remembers a period in San Francisco’s history when small, independently owned bakeries speckled the neighborhoods with personality—and he wants to bring that time back. That’s where Lotta’s Bakery comes in. Here are a few important points to keep in mind if you visit.
- The menu’s extensive. A few of Earl’s specialties include brownie bars, pecan pies, and sweet pumpkin breads.
- He can accommodate special orders. Whether that means a custom wedding cake, butter-free vegan pastries, or cinnamon rolls that extend into six dimensions, he’ll do what he can.
- That’s Earl’s face doodled on all the display tags.
- The bakery shares space with Sweet Antiques. That’s why the cake displays are surrounded by everything from vintage cameras to posters of Marilyn Monroe.
