ADVENTURE: Tasting the delicious San Francisco pastries by Jane The Bakery // EATING: Pastries for days! // CRAVE: Avocado toast!
If you’re on the hunt for the newest and tastiest San Francisco pastries, look no farther than Jane The Bakery!
Locals all know about Jane On Fillmore, the cutest cafe in Pac Heights serving up amazing latte art, pastries, sandwiches, salads and breakfast bowls — aka anything you’d ever want.
Of course, everyone else in the city wants those tantalizing bites too. What some locals haven’t yet caught wind of is the opening of Jane The Bakery, the newest addition to the Jane restaurant family.
Jane The Bakery has all the tasty San Francisco pastries, sandwiches, and bread your heart could ever desire. Walking into the shop, the atmosphere is relaxed with huge windows and a few skylights letting in a ton of natural light. Rows of pastries and shelves of bread run the full length of the store, a coffee bar in one corner, and several seats near the windows.
The menu has cookies, cakes, and, of course, pastries!
The head pastry chef, Alexander Terrazas, has been baking for 10+ years, starting his career on the east coast before making his way out to San Francisco. He’s come up with a ton of unique treats to satisfy you, like these two fluffy, flaky pastries filled with chocolate and cardamon cream.
Not to mention, a variety of amazing toast offerings like avocado mash toast with a soft boiled egg, pickled shallots and jalapenos on their housemade sourdough bread.
And, one of my favorites, a toasted cinnamon raisin bread with a fat pat of butter.
If you’re in the mood for lunch, they also have several sandwiches. Their croque madame was two amazing slices of housemade brioche bread with ham, cheese, eggs, scallions, and the perfect white sauce.
You can also go a more traditional route with a turkey sandwich with melted brie, greens, and more pickled shallots, another favorite!
Bottom line: You can’t go wrong at Jane The Bakery!
It makes the perfect spot to grab some goodies to bring in for your coworkers, take with friends on a picnic, or bring over for a brunch with friends.
Pro-tip, definitely snag some of their amazing loaves of bread to enjoy at home! I turned a few of these breads into gourmet grilled cheese, breakfast toast, and even a Panzanella tomato + bread salad. So tasty!
