Humphry Slocombe - San Francisco

Secret Breakfast & Blue Bottle Vietnamese Coffee
It was the last day in San Francisco, D asked if I wanted to see anything else?  I was good sightseeing wise but I had a couple of food stops I wanted to make.  I couldn't pass up trying ice cream, doughnuts and more baked goods.   You'd have thought that after 6 days of non-stop eating we would have been stuffed to the gills.

First stop, Humphry Slocombe.  We tasted a couple and settled on the secret breakfast, blue bottle vietnamese coffee and a chocolate one.   I liked the secret breakfast - it must be because of the bourbon.  It also had a nice crispy crunch to it in the form of toasted cornflakes.  You must be thinking what a gross combination but I really enjoyed it.  Not so much to D's taste though he really liked the blue bottle vietnamese coffee.  They have really out of whack and unusual mix of flavours that I would like to try the next time we're in SF.

After our ice cream fix, we walked to to Dynamo Donuts but they were mostly out of doughnuts- I snagged the last passion fruit chocolate one - yumm.  I'm sure those behind me in the queue were cursing because it was very very good.

After that we headed for Tartine Bakery - the queue was out the door and people continued to keep coming.   Most of the things I had wanted to try were all sold out so I settled on a mexican wedding cookie, a meringue kiss and a croissant.  Loved the mexican wedding cookie.  So soft and crumbly in your mouth.  Must be all that butter.
