I finally got to check out Sandbox Bakery in Bernal Heights. I’ve been waiting forever for it to open, and when it did, the hours were limited to 6am-3pm. It’s a breakfast joint, and I’m never awake for breakfast, but since I was up early from church, I finally got to enjoy some pastries.
I went with something savory and something sweet. On the savory side, I had their corn and bechamel kashi pan (corn and white sauce on challah bread). It’s like eating corn chowder in a bread bowl, except the bread is light, the sauce is thicker with a more subtle taste, and you can eat it with your hands without it making a mess.
On the sweet side, I had their kashi pan (brioche) with yuzu marmalade and sage. It wasn’t too sweet, which is the way I like my pastries – that way I can enjoy the entire thing (and more). Asians tend to make their sweets not too sweet, so if you have a strong sweet tooth, these pastries probably won’t hit the spot, but if you want a light and healthier feeling, Sandbox Bakery is perfect.
