Tout Sweet

Fans of Millionaire Matchmaker may remember Tout Sweet owner Yigit Pura, but I only have eyes for the amazing treats at his Macy's-ensconced Union Square bakery. 

The whole bakery case is beautiful, from intricately sculpted chiffon cakes to almost-too-beautiful cake boxes and bags worthy of Pura's elaborate creations. If you need a cake that impresses before you even take it out of the box, Tout Sweet beats the best of the best in SF.

But what about flavor, you ask? Well, the mille crepe cake was a home run for me. Not too sweet, not too dry, with a nice balance of custard and crepes, this is a cake for those who like moist, vanilla-y, well-balanced desserts. With a dish of raspberries, a drizzle of honey, or a cup of tea, I think it would make a wonderful breakfast or snack.
