Named for the patron saint of bakers, this French bakery on a quiet corner in Nob Hill serves light meals and pastries. Start the day off with a plain or chocolate croissant, or café au lait. For lunch and dinner there's quiche, sandwiches, salads, savory puff pastries, and tarts. Or simply unwind from shopping with a glass of wine and a luscious dessert at one of the sidewalk café tables. There's a newer, larger, and very attractive branch on Division Street's "restaurant
row" in Southeast.
