Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

With pastel tea tables, vintage cake stands and every conceivable type of candy, this charming Hayes Valley sweet shop is somewhere between a mid-century soda fountain and a mad hatter tea party. Miette’s old-fashioned cupcake is a simple combination—chocolate cake with boiled butter cream icing—but the result is as magical as the shop itself. The cake is rich and moist, and the icing resembles a grown-up marshmallow fluff. Garnished with a candied peanut, this cupcake is heaven in your hand. (If you’re looking for a more substantial dessert, have no fear—the old-fashioned comes in a larger cake size, as well.)
