with heavenly pastries, house-made organic artisanal breads, delicious chef-created sandwiches, hot entrées, organic salads, and, of course, briocheBrioche is an enriched French bread, made with butter and egg yolks, which gives the bread a very fine, soft crumb and an almost flaky texture. Brioche is often used in sweet dishes, such as French toast, but the bread itself does not contain much sugar. It does just as well in savory applications, where its buttery qualities can really shine.. Treat yourself to lunch at a cozy table inside, or enjoy sidewalk dining at the colorful cross between North Beach, Chinatown and the Financial District. Have brunch at Brioche on the weekend, or drop in for gelato for the kids while you enjoy a cappuccino and soak up the atmosphere. Don’t forget to take home some brioche or a loaf or two of the home-made artisanal breads to remind you to hurry back soon.
