No one’s hobbies on Hinge include “waiting in line for pastries,” so if you’re going to do it, they better be well worth the wait. The croissants at Neighbor Bakehouse aren’t enough on their own to merit listening to two episodes of Serial in the rain (mostly because there are other places in SF with phenomenal croissants), but if you pair them with pretty much anything else here, it’s justified. From savory stuff like kimchi toast to sweet things like German coffee cake and the raspberry hazelnut twice-bakeds (our personal favorite), it’s hard to go wrong.
