Sweet Places {Miette, San Francisco}

Last fall, when my lovely friend Sharnel and I spent some time in San Francisco, we made our way over to a special sweet shop called Miette.  We stopped by on a rainy Saturday morning, and had to walk a couple blocks in a light rain, but it was definitely worth the effort.  Miette is an adorable candy shop and bakery with a beautiful vintage feel.  The shop is full of antique tables and shelves, painted beautiful pastel colors.  Their large variety of sweets are displayed in pretty jars, vintage pottery and gorgeous cake stands!  Pretty sweets and beautiful cake stands in one place… yes, I was in heaven!  The shop is not real large, but they carry a wide variety of sweets.  In addition to the candy, there is a small bakery case where cupcakes and cakes are sold.  While Sharnel and I were buying some pretty pastel malt balls, a lady next to us was buying the same ones and mentioned they were for an Easter photo shoot.  We got to chatting, and found out she is a stylist for Pottery Barn Kids… oh the dream!  If you’re ever in San Francisco, Miette would be a perfect stop for any sweet lover!  For today, you can enjoy the shop here…

Have a sweet day!

    I love Miette! I had the pleasure of visiting it last October while in San Francisco for a marathon! Everything about the shop was absolutely charming from the jars of candy, to the display stands, and of course their cupcakes were amazing too!

    I love all those jars of gorgeous colors and candy! How do you buy the candy. Just reach in? Is it done by weight?

    I just found your blog and it is beautiful and inspiring! I have been browsing trying to find out what tip you use to get the pretty swirl on your cupcakes. Are you willing to share the process?

    Michelle- Lots of the candy was sold in pre-made bags that were 1/4 pound of candy. Or you could ask one the girls working there and they would scoop some out and weigh it.

    Anonymous- For frosting cupcakes I almost always use a Wilton 1M tip. I get quite a few questions on this topic, so I will try to do a post soon! Thanks for your sweet words too!

    The graham crackers melt in your mouth. So perfect for a cold rainy Saturday in December. If you’re ever in SF, stop by The Ferry Building and indulge in Miette.
