Bespoke Donuts' Thyme Trave

And now, like a bid on The Price is Right that just edges out the previous contesant's bid, come $4.50 doughnuts from Bespoke. They are also really good -- and have nothing to do with the "Bespoke Donuts" Krispy Kreme made for 2011 UK Fashion Week, although Bespoke's proprietors do wear charming bow ties.

Just For You's Beignet
Those who have had the good fortune to visit New Orleans know the power of a good beignet. And while the landscape of San Francisco bears little resemblance to the streets of the French Quarter, some of our spheres of fried dough dusted in powdered sugar come awfully close to the best examples from the Big Easy. For more than 20 years, Just For You Café in the Dogpatch has been serving some of the city's best. Adorned with vintage, neon-hued posters and a giant marlin that keeps a constant, watchful eye on the dining room, the small but bustling breakfast and lunch spot is a favorite for those seeking amiable and attentive service, a good, strong cup of coffee, and most of all, absolutely delicious beignets.
