Best Pastries of 2006: Boulangerie Bay Bread (baybread.com, 2325 Pine St., 415-440-0356)
Though I love Tartine, their pastries can be overloaded with butter and sugar (if there is any such thing). Boulangerie gets its baked goods (like this fruit tart) just right: rich, flaky and exquisitely presented.
