French Bakery La PanotiQ To Soft Open Tomorrow In Noe Valley

Adding to the coffee and pastry scene, Now Valley’s newest resident La PanotiQ will be the sixth location for the French-inspired bakery.

The family-owned business first opened in Campbell in August of 2014, and over the past two years, it has expanded to several other locations around the Bay Area, including an outpost in Berkeley and a smaller store on 2234 Chestnut St. in San Francisco. 

Their menu includes savory sandwiches, perfectly portioned scones, and caffeinated iced coffee — Maria Guterman, daughter of co-owners Mikhail and Natalya Guterman, is very excited for the launch of their newest location. Doubling in size, and bigger than the Chestnut Street bakery, this means they can accommodate seating for 31 people, including some four-tops and a community table.

La PanotiQ’s team in France is in charge of creating recipes and the items you’ve come to love, and a lot of the ingredients for their baked goods come also come from France. They offer an imported AOP French butter at all their bakeries, which Maria says gives it a “distinct texture and flavor.” We absolutely love it. And if you love their sandwich items, deli meats and charcuterie are sourced locally from Zoe’s in Petaluma, and coffee is from Bicycle Bakery in Oakland. La PanotiQ is bringing local back into their neighborhoods!

With their new storefront in Noe Valley, “a perfect fit” is what Maria thinks for the business on all levels. “We love the neighborhood, the weather, and the feeling of families walking around,” she said. “The windows and the ceiling height is just what we were looking for, and it gets just the right amount of sun.” 

// 4018 24th St, (San Francisco), their grand opening event on August 27th will be from 12-4pm. Get munching with their extensive menu!
