While Miette is mostly known for its pastries (macaroons, cakes, and tarts, oh my!) it continues to serve the desires on the other side of the bakery case with a carefully curated candy selection. With seasonal favorites such as orange chocolate squares and gummy sours, there is something for everyone inside this pretty pink haven. You can regularly find fancy Italian, French, and German candies alongside one of the widest varieties of black licorice in the Bay Area — we’re talking over 25 kinds!
What to get: Caramel Dragees (salted caramel in a thin, candy shell), Dinosaur Eggs (candy-covered milk chocolate with a gummy dinosaur inside), Butter Waffles (butter and maple hard candy), and Maison Bouche chocolate.
