CandyBar is the city’s first dessert lounge and it’s a gem: surely more San Francisco dessert bars are to follow after this? With a creamy minimalist palette splashed with cherry hues, local art, and indie tunes on the playlist, this petite spot puts big emphasis on sweets. Order the chef’s four-course tasting menu of organic two-bite wonders-think mini chocolate brioche with balsamic caramel ice cream or blood-orange baked Alaska with honeycomb and candied fennel. In the evenings, settle in on one of the low sofas for a glass of wine, a board game, and even a few savoury snacks. After 10pm, expect an influx of neighborhood trendy types fresh from dinner at Nopa, the popular resto that’s just around the corner.
