Mrs. Wineguy and I finally dropped in to Heartbaker after a chile-laden lunch at Spices II.
We shared a nutella bombolono as well as a chocolate caramel brownie and a slice of vanilla cheesecake.
The bombolono was great and tasted very fresh. Although nothing will beat the time we had some delivered last year--before this shop had opened--and they were still warm!
The brownie was oval shaped with a crisp exterior. Very sweet and deeply flavored.
The cheesecake was perhaps the best I've had in San Francisco. It had a chocolate cookie crust and the filling had just the right balance of sweet and tang. I also liked the weight of the filling: more substantial than Zanze's.
Their coffee is single cup drip and I would have liked it stronger.
They have bottled as well as draught beer and wine as well as non-dessert food. We didn't check out the offerings as we were suffering from a chile-induced and then a sugar-induced stupor!
