Enjoy Bavarian Treats in Hayes ValleyOn a sunny Hayes Valley corner is 20th Century Café, and though it may be a recent addition to the neighborhood, the pastries you’ll find their are firmly rooted in tradition.
Opened last summer by former Range pastry chef Michelle Polzine and inspired by the culinary traditions of Budapest, Vienna, and Prague, 20th Century Café is an ode to retro style and Eastern European food—think pierogis with plum reserves, bagels with lox, potato knish, and linzertortes.
Make sure to save room for a slice of Polzine’s Russian honey cake: multiple thin layers of fluffy cake soaked in honey cream frosting.
20th Century Café is open Tuesdays through Fridays from 8 am to 6 pm, Saturdays from 10 am to 6 pm, and Sundays from 10 am to 4 pm.
