Craftsman and Wolves, a cool café with some bangin’ pastries, is a hipsters paradise.
Craftsman and Wolves has two locations in San Francisco and I’ve been to the one on Valencia Street in the Mission District multiple times. They offer some awesome drinks such as hot chocolate with marshmallows, tisane tea, peach limeade, as well as coffee/tea, beer, and wine. They specialize in various pastries (sweet and savory), breads, and cakes in small batches. They even offer a few salads and sandwiches during the afternoon.
The rebel within is one of their most popular and iconic dishes with its warm fluffy bread flavored with Asiago cheese, sausage, green onion, and stuffed with a perfectly runny soft boiled egg with a sprinkle of tabasco salt. The peach kouign amann was crispy and caramelized with gooey peach marmalade in the middle. Other bakeries with bomb kouign amanns worth checking out are b. patisserie and Arsicault Bakery.
While I didn’t sample many of the items at Craftsman and Wolves, I can instantly tell the care and effort put into each delectable pastry so my rating is a 8.5/10.
