This Mission District hotspot is among a new wave of café/bakeries that eschew comfy sofas and crumb-laden tables in favor of a modern-minimalist style that puts the focus firmly on what’s behind the counter and in the display cases. The self-described “contemporary patisserie” offers a beautifully curated selection of sweet and savory treats, from muscovado morning buns and exquisite little cube cakes made with chocolate and blood orange to the signature Rebel Within—a soft-cooked egg housed inside a muffin made with asiago, green onion and Boccalone sausage. Other favorites include matcha snickerdoodles and Thai scones infused with green curry, candied ginger and coconut.
