Frolic & Detour Bakery


Frolic & Detour Bakery is a pop-up and wholesale bakery in San Francisco specializing in American desserts that are comfortingly familiar yet playfully unconventional. Here you'll find classics — such as (the best) chocolate chunk cookies and beautiful Bundt cakes — alongside new riffs on old favorites. Discover pillowy strawberry cookies, devil's food cake paired with white pepper buttercream, and hazelnut kinako brownies (gluten free). Everything is handmade with great care.

We create delicious treats that comfort and delight, think sugar should take a back seat to actual flavor, and believe that an outstanding cookie can turn any day around.

Cookie Pop Ups

You can find my Cookie Pop Ups in San Francisco and Oakland. Follow Frolic & Detour Bakery on Instagram to find out when I will be popping up next! You may even find a non-cookie treat making a guest appearance, like gluten-free Hazelnut + Kinako Brownies, or Pistachio + Chocolate Bundt Cakes. And you can always let me know if you’d like to place a pre-order to pick up at a pop up.
