Sunset Bakery: A User’s Guide
- Sweet: apple turnover
- Savory: barbecued-pork buns
- To drink: drip coffee
- To take home: poppy-seed muffin
Where to Sit: Seating is limited so if grabbing a stool at the front window and people-watching isn’t your thing, take your treats to go and hit up the trails at nearby Mt. Sutro Open Space Reserve.
While You’re Waiting: See how many of the dozens of eggs you can count in the nearby refrigerators before they’re cracked open by the chefs and transformed into tasty custards or cakes.
- Bring cash; Sunset Bakery doesn’t accept credit cards or checks.
- Order a full cake for a special occasion.
While You’re in the Neighborhood
Before: Peruse the displays of vintage newspapers or make an addition to your library at Great Overland Book Co (345 Judah Street).
After: Sip a pint while trying to guess whodunnit over a game of Clue at Little Shamrock (807 Lincoln Way), which shares a communal pile of board games with its clientele.
If You Can’t Make It, Try This: Eat some savory pies at Peasant Pies (1039 Irving Street).
