Will Work for Desserts - Citizen Cake

If a DJ ever asks you to help them move...JUST SAY NO! There's nothing worse than carrying crate loads after crate loads of records.

So when my brother called me up asking him to help him move back to LA I frantically tried all that I could to get out of helping...

Brother: Jeni, do you think you can help me move?

Jeni: Uhh...I don't know. I might have umm a thing to go to.

Brother: Thing to go to??? Come on J.

Jeni: Uhh...I might have to grade papers that weekend.

Brother: I'll fly you up.

Jeni: Really???

Brother: Unlimited sweets.

Jeni: Book my flight. click.

Last weekend while Dylan was roasting in the sun at Coachella, I worked my butt off as I help load my brother's 17 foot U-Haul with DJ junk and tons of furniture that he managed to acquire while working over at Williams Sonoma.

While I wasn't sweating and smelling like p*ts, I had the chance to run around SF for my sweet payment.

First stop, Citizen Cake.

My brother and I couldn't hang out on the restaurant side since they were only allowing dinner patrons. Buttheads!

Instead, we grabbed a couple of desserts on the bakery side.

lavender pannacotta
Luckily there were a lot of sweets to choose from, but we only had two bellies to fill. We ended up choosing a Rhubarb Rose Tart and Lavender Pannacotta. Both desserts were very light and executed strategically with a fine balance of texture and aroma. Very nice Citizen Cake.

Next stop, my most favorite bakery in the whole wide world...Tartine Bakery in the Mission District.
