Cafe Madeleine – San Francisco

Cafe Madeleine is located on O’Farrell and is as cozy as you might hope your morning coffee destination to be.

There’s an incredible display case of pastries, over which I agonized and salivated.

Deliciousness abounds in this cafe

as does the comforting aroma of coffee.

The mocha comes topped with a spectacular chocolate whipped cream made fresh daily.

Jeff got the French Roast and I needed a toasted bagel to start the day.

I’m one to get overly excited about food, even a common, everyday bagel.

I couldn’t wait to crunch into my toasty breakfast.

Yum!

But the excitement was only getting started! See what I mean:

The Cassis.

Feast your eyes on this beauty. Layers of spongecake and passion fruit mousse topped with a layer of berry mousse, black currant glaze, and fresh fruit.

It was a heavenly treat.

So early in the morning. What a way to start the day.

Wish I had known about this little slice of heaven when we were in SF. What a pleasure that would have been.
