Tout Sweet Patisserie
One of the reason why San Francisco is truly one of the best city to live in the world is we have Yigit Pura, the winner of Top Chef Just Desserts from the first season! He opened up his first store last year called Tout Sweet in Union Square. Or more precisely on the second floor of women's Macy's building. The space is quite nice. Very clean with gorgeous pop of colors. The best part is, naturally, the food. You can have sandwiches, dessert, and coffee. I actually never had their sandwiches before so I don't know if they are any good. But I definitely have their desserts before and I can assure you, they are Fabulous with capital F! They have the best macaroons in town. Not as good as Laduree in NYC but definitely better than any I had in SF in a patisserie setting. The flavors are always changing and adventurous. I highly recommend them. They also have the best butter croissants in town as well. Thorough Bread comes quite close but they loose points for being inconsistent! Tout Sweet, on the other hand, is always spot on. If you are ever near Union Square, stop by Yigit's first patisserie. Your taste buds will thank you.
