Best of the Bay 2011: BEST SWEET HOOKERS


We used to love watching David "Hooker" Williams rule the pool table and patio at the Pilsner Inn back in the day. But who knew then that lurking within him was the potential to blow our sweet tooth into the stratosphere? Good thing he let that scrumptious light shine, following his muse to create Hooker's Sweet Treatshandmade, habit-forming, sea-salted, dark chocolate-covered caramels. These little babies, which Williams calls his "hookers," work the corners of finer food stores like Bi-Rite Market or display themselves tantalizingly at the homey Hooker's Sweet Treats Café in the Tenderloin, tempting you to pick up a private evening's worth of smooth and gooey entertainment. Or hey, just gorge on all the hookers you want right there, accompanied by a fresh cup of Sightglass coffee and to-die-for plum pudding.
