Breakfast at Woodward Gardens

Stopped by in August based on a chowpost saying they were now open mornings. Lost my notes in the move. Here's what I remember.

Mainly breakfast pastries, frittatas and sandwiches.

The turnover was the best I've had in San Francisco. For me, it even beats Downtown Healdsburg Bakery's turnover which was my former favortie. The buttery crust is full of fresh seasonal fruit. I ordered to go and it came with a little container of whipped cream.

The scone was very nice and came with a container of lemon curd. There were some tarts as well using seasonal fruits. Figs were big in August.

I had a grilled gorgonzola and fig sandwich which I liked very much too. All baked goods are made on the premisis except for the bread. I think it was Acme. It was of that quality anyway.

On anther visit I had a frittata or some sort of baked egg dish. It was good, but I guess not memorable. Again, I do remember a very good crust.

The interior could use sprucing up a bit. The freeway is torn down and the sun shining in the windows highlights the shabbines of the place, and it's not charming.

There's always take-out. Parking is a bear in the area. Closed Mondays. They are open at 8am Tuesday thru Friday.
