Maison Nico, (at Jackson Square, San Francisco), stands out as a beacon of authentic French patisserie. This cozy cafe, right opposite the iconic Transamerica Tower, has made waves with its exquisite range of pastries. The star attraction? We tried their croissant marron (chestnut croissant), which offers a delightful fusion of light, buttery texture and unique chestnut flavor.
Although a bit on the pricey side, Maison Nico justifies its costs with high-quality ingredients and visually stunning, skillfully crafted pastries. The open kitchen adds to the charm, offering a glimpse into the delicate artistry of their chefs.
