Arsicault Bakery (SF)

The kouign amann are for husband who pulls one for breakfast a couple of times a week. They are too rich (both sugar and butter) for me to enjoy comfortably, as are their croissants. But I did buy me two croissants which I dole out and pay the consequences by popping a Gelusil within half an hour. The wages of sin…

When I can’t handle the butteriness of an arsicault croissant but still want some pastries, I buy Jane’s from Toy Boat. It’s close by and rather delicious (though I’ve recently been partial to arsicault’s double-barrelled pain au chocolat…)

I have yet to stop in at Jane,soon although they are undoubtedly the best baguette source in the neighborhood, some say town. Soon. Thanks.

( Before Jane, Toy Boat was where I took the grand-kids to ride the “horse that eats money”, as 4-year old grand-son dubbed it.)
