Embarcadero Local Flavor What To Do In...

Mariposa Baking Co.

An old favorite of mine, always a stopping point when I was near the Ferry Building, and a regular Friday night treat when I started working in walking distance, Mariposa by mail order lives up to its reputation in person: gluten free and so delicious that you’d never know it.

We incidentally dove deep on cinnamon-flavored things: it’s the dominant taste of the donut holes, whose flavor profile is almost closer to a churro.

The cinnamon rolls have long been my weakness, but it’s never occurred to me to heat them before. It’s a distinct improvement (and Boyfriend is a dessert genius).
