Dont you just love a candy store that is as good to look at as the candy its self? I sure do. They look like a little sugar wonderland contained in a room. The really cute ones i think really do make the candy taste better. It is oh so alluring regardless. I find it hard to not be drawn to the window like a magnet which then as if hypnotized up the 2 small steps and into this place of color and sugar. I find it impossible to leave without looking at all the awesomely packaged and displayed bite sized treats and even more impossible to leave without buying something. It seems almost a crime to leave this little gem with all these sweet tasties without taking a little piece of it with me.
Bravo to Miette Candy Shop on Octavia St. in San Francisco. It is as visually striking to see as the contents is yummy! It is a little step into your childhood imagination of the perfect little candy shop. They carry many imported candies as well as some of the classics. I love that they really do awesome window displays for all of the desired holidays.
They have another shop that is more focused on pastries down at the Ferry Building which i have not been to but seen pictures of some of the things that come out of that shop and WOW. Beautiful confections! I believe another store is scheduled to open shortly in Berkeley Ca. as well.
(these two lovely ladies are the owners of Miette.)
Thank you Miette! Your store reaches deep into a happy place in me just by walking by! You help make San Francisco a true delight!
