When I lived in San Francisco for a month in 2004, I found myself indulging almost every morning in a hot chocolate and croissant from La Boulange Bakery on Polk Street. It’s one of my favourite treat combos. So this morning, I popped into Fol Epi Organic Bakery and Caffè Fantastico at Dockside Green. Nice hot chocolate at Fantastico, not too sweet; a good compliment to the buttery perfection of the Fol Epi pastry. A line of tiny sparrows waited patiently for the crumbs I left behind.
