On weekends when brunch just seems too much of a commitment, a pastry could be just the treat you need to kickstart your day– less hassle, but special enough to enjoy on the weekend. Our friends at 7×7 have rounded up some of their favorite confections from bakeries around the city to put on your breakfast bucket list. Eva Frye at 7×7 writes:
Sandbox Bakery’s Morning Bun
Here in Bernal Heights, there is a morning bun whose sticky, flaky, butter-laden dough tears into generous swirls of citrus and cinnamon. After time at La Farine in Oakland, Chez Panisse, Rubicon, and 10 years at Slanted Door, it’s no wonder pastry chef Mutsumi Takehara’s morning bun is whispered to rival Tartine’s.
Baker & Banker’s Brown Butter Cinnamon Roll
Lori Baker’s little pastry shop on the side of her restaurant serves up some enormous cinnamon rolls with brown butter cream cheese frosting. Tangy cream cheese and deep brown butter melt into a rich frosting smoothed over a luscious, sticky round of cinnamon bread.
Devil’s Teeth Baking Company’s Beignets
Just look at these huge beignets– light, airy, warm, comforting. Get some at The Devil’s Teeth Baking Company in the Outer Sunset and wash it down with a glass of Bicycle Coffee. These billowy pillows of sweet are only served on Sundays though, so plan accordingly.
This mouth-watering breakfast bucket list continues on over at 7×7.
