One of my favorite places in the Ferry Building in San Francisco is Miette. They have an array of different desserts in their display cases, including my all-time favorite macarons, cakes, and rows of novelty chocolate in bowls displayed along the side. Their mini freezer of ice cream sandwiches is pretty much what I go for every single time, as they use their famous cookies or crackers and top-quality chocolate (Varhona) and other ingredients.
Their macarons are pretty much are the best macarons I've had, topping Masse's in Berkeley. They're the perfect texture, a bit chewy, not as overly-sweet as other places, and the perfect amount of flavor. I'm a fan of the rose macaron, but their other flavors are also amazing! And no food coloring involved! Their ice cream is also a must, and you can take home some of their prepackaged cookies to munch on. I can promise they won't last long!
