The Bay Area is home to a lot of great food, from Michelin-starred restaurants in San Francisco to globally-recognized fine dining in the Napa Valley.
The latest places to add to your Bay Area food bucket list: Sugar Dot Bake Shop in Walnut Creek and Hey, Cookie! in San Francisco, named as two of the best bakeries in the U.S. by Yelp this month.
Sugar Dot ranks as the second-best bakery in the U.S., while Hey, Cookie! took the sixth spot.
Sugar Dot Bake Shop specializes in custom-made desserts for events and unfortunately, doesn't have a brick-and-mortar store.
From Meyer lemon tarts to chocolate and coconut cakes, there's a decadent option for practically every dessert lover.
