One thing you need to know about Astranda Bakery - they sell out of their coffee cinnamon rolls quickly. So it was by some stroke of luck that I was able to score the very last one at Oakland’s Magnolia Mini Mart. When I opened the box, my jaw dropped at the sight of it: a fluffy, soft roll layered with brown sugar cinnamon paste and a sticky coffee-caramel sauce, and bathed in a smooth, drippy, coffee-flavored frosting that I would like to take shots of before I work out. Simply put, it’s a cinnamon roll done perfectly. Since you should absolutely do your best to get your hands on one, you’ll want to stand at the ready when pre-orders open on Saturdays at 8am (check Instagram for updates). Owner Eric Chow will deliver the cinnamon rolls in SF on Fridays. But if you’d rather take your chances, walk up to Excelsior Coffee or Magnolia Mini Mart on Thursdays and Saturdays to order (get there early).

Jane on Fillmore
Food for the Lululemon crowd, and for us too. Jane on Fillmore finely toes the line between healthy and delicious. If only they were open for dinner.
Like its sister spot on Fillmore, Jane on Larkin serves some of our favorite lattes, granola, breakfast sandwiches, and avocado toasts in the city.
The only reason you need to know about Arsicault Bakery in the Richmond is croissants, but their other pastries are amazing, too.
