I don't know where other reviewers get their ideas but I have NEVER eaten this quality of French-style patisserie anywhere in the US ...period! The croissants not only melt but hold up for 3 days without refrigeration, the selection is superb, the cleanliness is great and the hot chocolate was magnificent. No further comments needed!

I can't remember the name of these pastries I can describe it as a glazed croissant with a filling ( ham and cheese, chocolate, mango/passion fruit, etc- those we tried). Amazing taste and consistency. Their coffee was also really good and strong. Is a very small busy place where finding a table is a struck of luck, but I was... More

Had to grab some pastries here after numerous recommendations said it was some of the best French pastries in America. I had the Apple Almond Croissant and the Kouign Amann. Both were indescribably buttery, flaky, and crisp with just the right amount of sweetness. I literally could eat these every morning. Makes me even more excited for my teip to... More

Pleasant patisserie that is bright with large windows and lots of seating, including a couple of tables outside. Plenty of choice for food items and so I tried the "house specialty" kouign amman and a quiche. Both are excellent. Coffee was Parisian style - so large its almost a bowl, I liked the low acidity! Only minus is no inhouse... More

Whether you're a local or just visiting San Francisco, B's Patisserie is a must visit. Easily the #1 bakery/patisserie in the city, and many food editors say the best in the country! B's is more than just the creative jewel of a top notch pastry chef - it's a neighborhood joint, a retreat for parents and strollers, and a sweeter... More

This is my favorite bakery.. and I love pastries :) I think I've tried just about everything here and have never had an item I didn't love. I would recommend their almost croissants and of course the kouign amman! Great coffee too. Perfect place to stop by to catch up with friends or family. It stays pretty busy all day... More

The B. lives up to the hype. The lines can be long, but the wait is worth it. The pastries are simply amazing.

This place has the best Kouign Amman, hands down!! The crunch is perfection, with enough fluff in the center and a bit of gooey sugar in the center. I haven't been a fan of Kouign Amman in general because most of the time it's overwhelmingly sweet but this one is just perfect and not too sweet/sugary eventhough my description may... More

What a wonderful take on pumpkin pie and cheesecake! A delightful end to our Thanksgiving feast. And your bread was fantastic, too.

If you are in San Francisco, make sure you visit B Patisserie! The coffee was great too. I love how they make everything from scratch.
