The daily spread at this beloved bakery is the stuff of sugar-coated fantasies. Located in the Richmond District, Schubert's has been serving up a sumptuous selection of cookies and pastries for more than a century.
The array of elegantly decorated cakes on display are true works of art. The Swedish Princess (white cake with raspberry and kirsch custard filling, whipped cream and marzipan icing) is a specialty, but my personal favorite is the melt-in-your-mouth Chocolate Mousse with whipped cream. Whether you crave cheesecake, fruit tarts or mocha tortes, you'll be hard pressed to find finer slices anywhere in the city.
Word to the wise: Prepare for a wait if you stop by on a Saturday morning when croissants and danish seem to fly off the shelves. There's no take a number system at Schubert's, so it's every sweet tooth for itself!
