Arsicault Bakery

Top choice bakery in Golden Gate Park & the Avenues

Armando Lacayo left his job in finance because he, like his Parisian grandparents before him, was obsessed with making croissants. After perfecting his technique, Lacayo opened a modest bakery in the Inner Richmond in 2015. Within a year, Bon Appétit magazine had declared it the best new bakery in America and the golden, flaky, buttery croissants regularly sell out.

Now there is talk of a new location near Civic Center, expected to open in 2019.
