Growing up in San Francisco meant that my birthday cakes always came from Dianda's. I recalled their cakes tasted so unbelievably delicious back in the 1970s. In 2008, I took my oldest daughter to San Francisco to celebrate her 16th birthday. We strolled into Dianda's, and it was as if nothing had changed in 30 years. Their pastries were the only boyhood food I ate that tasted as good as I recalled. Pizzaries I frequented lost their edge. Mexican restaurants weren't the same any longer. Dianda's has stood the test of time. I returned again in 2016 with my father and brother. Once again, their pastries did not disappoint. I don't know how they do it, but they have stood the test of time in a part of San Francisco that has largely fallen into disarray.

First time I was fortunate enough to taste the Delights of Diandas, was at My daughters' wedding,In San Franciso, Mission District, in July~~needless to say, the Wonderful Taste of the Almond Torte, blew Me away, the next day, I walked to Diandas and had them ship a torte to My girlfriend in Minden, NV.....She raved about it and I had to promise to send her another for the Holidays!~~~to add to that, I am ordering 2 tortes to send to My sister, in Montana, where I will be spending the Thanksgiving Holiday, and thus will be able to savor the Almond Torte, once again!~~~This Bakery deserves, More than A Five Star Rating!~~~I wish they had a store in Portland, Oregon, where I live!

This bakery is one of the best in SF (besides Victoria in North Beach.) I looove their St honore. I like it for the quality of their products, as well as their prices. Too many bakeries over charge under the pretence of being ""quality"" outlets. I am French, and really get frustrated seeing bakers charging an arm and a leg for cakes. This is definitely a winner. When I want a good cake at a reasonable price, I drive to Dianda's. Do yourself a favor and try it :-)
