Le Dix-Sept Pâtisserie
Where we've featured it
Nougat Gift Box ($36)
The bakery in the Mission specializes in desserts made with botanical ingredients, like flowers and fruits. And for the holidays, you can order a box of nougat made with mangoes, figs, or pumpkin seeds. They also ship throughout California.
Le Dix-Sept started as a pop-up almost 10 years ago, and is now a brick-and-mortar spot in the Mission. Owner Michelle Hernández churns out colorful, botanical-inspired pastries, confections, and drinks using plants, flowers, and other natural ingredients. The menu changes daily, but typically includes things like vanilla bean canelés, chocolate almond tarts with passion fruit, and lavender hazelnut hot chocolate. They’re open Saturday and Sunday from 10am-3pm, and will expand their hours in November.
