The subtle and sexy design of this bakery and cafe showcases the high artistry of owner, pastry chef, Willaim Werner, and his team. Adaptive re-use of a timber and brick building in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission District sets the mood for this sophisticated cafe where the pastry is “It”. The custom counter and pastry case become the center of attention lending color and figure to the minimal, moody design insertions. The long space, with the top lit, twenty-five foot ceilings, is broken down with seating at the front and casework/counter at the rear. The design is both modern and old-world-handmade like the craft of the pastry chef.
