So sad I never got to try the cruffin, but Mr. Holmes' Bakehouse has got some other awesome pastries and baked goods as well. The stuffed donuts and other croissant based concoctions were excellent. Looks like there are only crazy lines in the early morning...More

Excellent pastries straight from the kitchen. I went by Sunday morning and there were over 100 people in line. I went back Monday afternoon and was number three in line. Worth the wait either way.

Didn tonight try the cruffin but had a savory tart and banana cream donut. The savory ham and cheese item was perfect for breakfast and the coffee served is the best cup I had in SF. Short line on a Monday morning.

This place has a extraordinary atmosphere but it isn't difficult to understand the lines from outside of the door. Everything is well made, with some creative pastries and breads.

Wonderful breakfast pastries are found at this tiny spot. We've sampled quite a few of the offerings here (but never got the chance to try the cruffins). It's basically a take-out only spot. The servers are very friendly and cheerful. A perfect way to start...More

The small shop on Larkin street is located right next to the bakery which means stuff is super fresh. Go for the Cream and strawberry doughnuts. they serve good coffee too. Best for early morning breakfast.

Honestly, I cannot remember because I went only for the chocolate croissants and I didn't even look at the rest of the menu. I'm sorry I couldn't answer your question.
