The much-anticipated opening of chef William Werner’s Craftsman and Wolves is now a reality. Serving an evolving, seasonal selection of sweets with several savory dishes, this is a contemporary escape in the heart of the Mission. And while the location on Valencia may be hipster central, one step in this chic patisserie and you will easily feel as if you’ve been transported to an ultra high-end pastry shop overseas. With modern aesthetics in both interior design and product display, Craftsman and Wolves is all about the details.
I attended a sneak preview, and was impressed with the offerings and space. CAW, with their delicately thought-out menu is a venue where I could easily stop in for a casual breakfast – Sightglass coffee, Passion Fruit Sesame Croissant + Yogurt and granola. On the other hand, the decor and menu makes it the ideal location for an afternoon Formosa oolong tea time and lunch with the ladies. CAW is a unique addition that San Francisco has been both lacking and unexpectedly waiting for. It’s also another reason you may want to hit the gym extra hard this week.
The “Rebel Within” – a savory sausage and cheese muffin with poached egg is a beloved, signature creation of Chef/Owner William Werner.

Craftsman and Wolves officially opens today at 7am. I predict this is going to be THE SPOT to wake up to in the Mission.

Oh this place looks great. I will go by at lunch today.
Thank you mika! I went for lunch today with a coworker. It was so great. I’m going back this weekend with my hubby.
The Mission is the new location for restaurants and bakeries it seems. It may be because the rent is cheaper than downtown or soma but it’s great either way.
Hope you enjoyed!
Sounds wonderful. Once you’ve been, it’s hard to stay away.
I do agree it’s a great thing. The Mission has really flourished in the last 5-10 years as a major SF dining destination. I love that you can still get your fix of authentic taquerias, but if you are craving something a bit more high end, you can find it there as well.
