Butter & Crumble is a palace of all things pastry. And everyone knows it—the North Beach bakery attracts block-long lines of butter enthusiasts who line up daily for impeccable croissants. The ones here won’t weigh you down for the rest of the day. Each is light and crackly, with inner layers so thin they’re transparent. The menu rotates, but expect playful twists, like the bacon, egg, and cheese croissant with a gooey egg yolk, or the seasonal peppermint bark pain suisse that tastes like a candy cane had a baby with a brownie. Also know that a visit here is null and void if you don’t order the pistachio cardamom croissant. It’s dusted with sugar and piped full of velvety pistachio cream you’ll want to eat by the scoop.
