Fabulous!

This place is amazing! I am so glad we stumbled onto them! The best part is ordering the Large Late... and having it come out in a bowl for the first time. I had the breakfast sandwich while I was there and the ham and cheese croissant was delicous. I am sad I had to leave them behind

A good place to stop by with a friend for a cup of coffee. The place looks a little tired. The staff is very friendly.

What's not to like about a place that will serve your soy chai latte in a bowl as big as your face? As one of my good friends would say, "awesomesauce!" The canneles are the perfect amount of sweet - just enough to satisfy your sweet tooth without being overpoweringly sugary like many American baked goods. And for those of... More

I was staying at a hotel nearby and needed a quick lunch before heading back to a conference and was directed to La Boulange by a hotel employee. I am hoping to go back when I am not in a hurry as there were so many great choices and the staff bent over backwards to confirm that nothing I ordered... More

Great place next to Yerba Buena park. Grab a pastry or a full breakfast from their many delicious choices and enjoy a moment in the park.

La Boulange was close to our hotel and we had breakfast here every morning. I really liked the almond croissant!

I found this place on my very last day visiting San Francisco and all I can say is, "Wow!" I came here for breakfast and returned the same day for lunch! The food is fresh and delicious. The pastries were divine and the salads were delicious. For lunch, I ordered a salad of roasted beets and goat cheese to ease... More

Used to always make the hike up to Polk. Then the became associated with Starbucks. Great for the company, fine for the customers. Now, I'd have to say, it's good if there's one close and you're looking for a quick bite or a cup of coffee. It beats many of the alternatives

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
