Miette Patisserie is a dainty little pastry shop, inspired by the patisseries of Paris. The pale pink walls and lovingly created cakes, cookies, and pastries lined up in sparking glass display cases evoke a slice of Parisian life on the San Francisco Bay. Many of the ingredients are organic and most are from local producers.
Miette means little crumb in French. Some favorite items available at the Ferry Building Marketplace are Parisian Macaroons, Chocolate Eclairs, Gingerbread Cupcakes, and the exquisite Morning Buns. Popular cookies include the Lavender Shortbread and Chocolate Sables. Meg Ray, a lifelong baker, founded Miette in 2001 to realize her vision of making the beautiful and delicious pastries she found on her visits to Europe.
