We assume it takes a lot of effort to get something federally trademarked, and in the case of Batter’s Sand Angel®, that effort was totally worth it. These secret-recipe cinnamon cookies are some of our favorite in the city, and everything else from their devil’s food brownies to the pumpkin bread will make you go out of your way to stop in when you’re in the area.
Where we've featured it

Sons & Daughters
Fine dining that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Sons & Daughters is definitely our speed.
Lers Ros Thai
While this isn’t the closest Thai food to Union Square, it’s walkable, and it’s by far the best option.
With its retractable roof, Peacekeeper in the Tendernob is a great bar to come to on a nice night and feel like you're outside, but without the wind.
More American spotsSee more
Wayfare Tavern is an old-school spot in the Financial District. And we mean that in the very best way.
Nook is a solidly on-price, reliable neighborhood hang in Russian Hill. Even if they do weird things with granola.
Chez Panisse Cafe
Chez Panisse Cafe in Berkeley is the more casual (and possibly better) sister spot to Chez Panisse, which is located just downstairs.
Suggested by our writers
On average, the best bread bakery in the country can be found at Tartine Bakery in the Mission.
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.
Acme Bread Company
Head to Acme Bread Company in the Ferry Building for some of the best bread in the city.
