THIS WAS MY FAVORITE PLACE TO EAT AT IN ALL OF SAN FRANCISCO!!! OH MY GOODNESS! I WANT TO GO BACK TO SAN FRANCISCO JUST FOR MARIPOSA BAKING CO!!!
Mariposa Baking Co is incredible (in case you missed that!). It is 100% gluten free meaning I didn’t have to worry about cross contact. They have two locations, but I visited the one at the ferry docks. Knowing breakfast would be a struggle at the work conference, my mom ordered me fresh gluten free bagels for pick up so I would have breakfast every morning. Thanks, mom!! The gluten free bagels did not disappoint!! I ate one every day for 5 days and I was so impressed with the texture and size (AKA not miniature or dry).
As soon as I checked into my hotel, I walked over 1.5 miles to get to Mariposa Baking Co. I was starving and ordered the Gobbler sandwich, which comes on a toasted gluten free baguette. The sandwich was the perfect mix of Thanksgiving—turkey, cranberry sauce, cheese, and more. I loved this so much that the very next day I made the 3 mile round trip walk to get another one for dinner.
I also was SO excited to try empanadas so I just had to order one…and boy was it delicious! It is small but packed full of flavor as it was a veggie curry empanada. So that I would have dinner that evening I picked up a veggie & feta pastry pocket. The pocket held up really well and was great eaten cold even! The pastry was light and flaky like traditional pastry.
As for sweets, I bought two cupcakes, a box of cinnamon donut holes, and graham crackers (which I saved for the 4th of July to make s’mores). Clearly I really enjoy sweets. I loved everything I bought, but the donut holes were my absolute favorite. I didn’t get as many photos as I had hoped because everything was so good that I ate everything before thinking of taking photos. Oops!
Some tips…Seating can be hard to find, but it was worth it. I recommend calling in orders for pickup to ensure you have a good selection. Some items sell out super quickly including the bagels.
Would I go back? DEFINITELY 100% NO QUESTION!! There’s so many more menu items I want to try and I loved everything I ate. Thank you, Mariposa Baking Co, for being SO incredible!!
