Forget fist-like scones and flaccid croissants.
In the Outer Sunset, husband-and-wife team Lauren Crabbe and Michael McCrory are baking pastries that channel their café’s Irish pedigree, like rich, tender soda currant scones and Irish soda bread.
3655 Lawton St. (at 43rd Ave.), 415-753-9775
Cafe St. Jorge
Andrea de Francisco grew up shuttling between San Francisco and her family’s native Portugal, and the pastéis de nata and bolo de arroz she bakes reflect her delicious dual heritage.
3438 Mission St. (at Kingston St.), 415-814-2028
Saint Frank Coffee
The café’s pillowy muffins and ethereal cream-filled brioche doughnuts are the work of Ry Stephen, who goes by the nom de beurre of Mr. Holmes; he’ll soon open a Tendernob storefront of his own.
