If you have not yet experienced the #MrHolmesBakehouse Instagram “takeover,” hop to it! I am not going to lie, if it wasn’t for the pink “I Got Baked in San Francisco” neon sign blowing up my feed, my summer would not have been as sweet.
Tucked away on Larkin Street, minutes from the ever popular Union Square, sits Mr. Holmes Bakehouse – your home to the croissant muffin aka “Cruffin.” Holmies line up daily by 8:30 am to get a taste of this decadent concoction. If you snooze you lose – there is a method to the madness, and I’ve got it down to a science. Arrive no later than 8:35, grab a coffee, then wait in line until the first batch of cruffins is out of the oven promptly at 9.
This savory breakfast item is flakey like a croissant, shaped like a muffin, and filled with a different pudding flavor each day. From peanut butter and jelly, pistachio, to salted caramel, you name it they’ve made it. My favorites to date are peach cobbler, and triple chocolate. If this description does not have your mouth watering, an even larger assortment of baked goods is available open to close. Artichoke danishes, sticky buns, brioche bombs, and heavenly donuts to name a few. The sugar covered donuts are my second favorite and flavors change daily, but if you’re lucky, it’ll be a passion fruit day.
So, the next time you’re in San Francisco, plan your day around a trip to Mr. Holmes Bakehouse and thank me later. If you like my style, and need recommendatioms for an epic day in San Francisco, check out my post, “24 Hours in San Francisco.”
