  • Chocolate espresso cookie by Les Éléments.

Les Éléments Pâtisserie is the brainchild of Luis Villavelazquez, former pastry chef at Absinthe and current head chef and kitchen manager for La Victoria Bakery. The bakery is his outlet to really express his creativity, making simple treats like cookies shine.

His chocolate espresso cookie is big and chewy, with those beautiful crackled and flat areas that never seem possible to bake at home. Instead of chocolate chips, shards of espresso beans are scattered throughout, but they're tiny enough to keep the buzz in the background.

Find these cookies plus the most creative cupcakes and scones in the city at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market every Saturday.

  • 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.'"
