Today, my good friend Anne and I headed down to the Piccino for Sunday brunch. Located in the “dogpatch” area of town, this was a delightful find!
Starting off with a basket of pastries with butter and a persimmon-pear jam, these confections were piping hot out of the oven when they got to the table. We had a muffin, a scone, and a banana bread – all baked perfectly and stood well on their own. The persimmon-pear jam was delicious but overpowering to the baked goods and would probably done better with just fresh bread.
For me, I had the pulled pork hash – made with blue potatoes, butternut squash, radish, and an egg on top. So flavorful!
And Anne had the baked egg – packed full of flavor from tomatoes, herbs and cheese!
A bonus for an artist who loves to support local artists, I was excited to find Rickshaw© across the street! A local company that makes urban messenger bags and bags featuring sites around the bay area, it was a fun place to shop off some calories!
