The swanky French tea room and patisserie in Lower Nob Hill smells like a croissant-scented air freshener at all times. Prepare to consume infinite sticks of butter. Or more realistically, a decadent ham and cheese croissant that’s warm and melty. Tea time under ornate chandeliers ($70 per person, and $295 for two with caviar service) involves a higher ratio of sweet to savory, so you’ll have a great time at Maison Danel if you bug out at the phrase “flaky, buttery pastry.” Miniature cakes, delicate macarons, chocolate twists (and those croissants) are stacked on tiered towers. They also have an abridged kids afternoon tea option ($38) with hot chocolate.
