Apple tarte tatin – Caffe Pascucci

Apple tarte tatin Caffe Pascucci
Beautifully sliced apples baked onto a thin puff pastry shell.  I wanna say there was also some almond paste in it, but don’t hold me to that, hehe.
Caffe Pascucci, San Francisco

There was a lot of hype when Caffe Pascucci was opening its store near the Giant’s ballpark.  This was to mark the Italian Company’s first foray into San Francisco’s caffineine crazed, foodie culture.  My first impression of the space was that it was sleek and modern, but loungy and comfortable enough to plop down with your laptop.  The clientele was your well-heeled corporate crowd taking a break from their boardrooms and computer screens to swing by and get re-energized with a latte.  The food looked pretty inviting, and this apple tarte tatin was very good.  These tend to be bite sized at other coffee shops, but this one was larger than most.  The service was also friendly and efficient.  I think they’ve done a great job with the place, and if I worked closer I would stop by more often.

The cappuccino was good, but it didn’t have a distinct taste to it that differentiated it from other espresso brands.
