  • The breakfast sandwich at two-week-old Devil's Teeth Baking Company is already a favorite.

SFoodie could be forgiven for walking by the Outer Sunset's Devil's Teeth Baking Company and not even realizing it was open. Barely two weeks old, the storefront still lacks a proper awning, and the only signage is an 8 ½-X-11 sheet of printer paper taped to the window. Once we stepped inside however, it was clear that Devil's Teeth is already a very busy neighborhood hangout.

Hugs and hellos awaited just about everyone who ventured in; moms presided over a Blue Bottle coffee klatsch, showing off the local elementary school's fundraising prowess; and at 8:30 on a sunny weekday morning, the muffins were already sold out. That sad news digested, we snagged a spot at the wooden counter, inhaled the salty ocean air, and dug into breakfast.

The breakfast sandwich ($5) is an instant signature item (it, too, sold out, but not before we could order). Two slices of crispy Daily's bacon lay atop a mound of perfectly cooked soft scrambled eggs and a slice of mild cheddar, all encased in a salty, buttery biscuit that didn't fall apart. A square of carrot cake ($3) was exceedingly moist, studded with shreds of real carrot and, thankfully, no rock-hard raisins. A layer of luscious cream cheese frosting added just a hint of sweetness.

SFoodie grew up eating Hostess coffee cakes (now made by Drake's) and the cinnamon-dusted version here ($2) transported us to the backseat of mom's car on the way to kindergarten. We didn't even miss the preservatives and corn syrup.

A glance at the menu board had us already plotting our next trip west. Sunday is beignet day so that's a sure visit, and we mentally planned a lunchtime trip after spotting deep pans of lasagna (slices are only five bucks).

Awnings are overrated anyway.

Devil's Teeth Baking Company: 3876 Noriega (at 46th Ave.); no phone number listed.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
