I stopped in for a quick treat. Because it was Valentines Day -- the treats were heart shaped! Everything looked very inviting. I loved my rocky road bar. Super rich, moist and packed with almonds.

A brightly lit cafe near SF MOMA - delicious coffee and cakes. Shame they don't serve drink-ins in real cups though I guess it enables you to instantly turn it into a take-out if required! Delicious chocolate almond biscotti.
