Why We Love It: For the charm. Miette is a storybook pastry shop, all pastel ribbons and frills, but, impossibly, it tastes even better than it looks. The macarons hold up to high, classic standards, the cupcakes are decadently iced, and the layer cakes are precious. The Ferry Building is a madhouse on weekends, so be wise and use a weekday.
