I have never given a 1 star review. I wish I didn't have to now. I don't get the hype of this place. People were lined up. We have been wanting to try it for a while and we were very disappointed. I had the cobb salad and although it tasted good (nice dressing) it was skimpy. Hardly any bacon... More

We have eaten here 2 days running as we enjoyed the first breakfast so much. The scramble breakfast is lovely, and so is the coffee. There's a great selection of dishes and I was well catered for as a vegetarian. Wifi would be a bonus, but the great food makes up for the lack of it.

Went here a couple of times on a recent trip to SF. The baked goods were fresh, the coffee was good too!. We loved the ambience and feel of the place and wished we'd eaten more of the sandwiches and other fare. The veggie quiche was fantastic, as was the chocolate croissant and the pecan tart was amazing!

I stop by for quick snack and order the almond croissant, had a lot almonds, the croissant was crunchy on the outside and soft in the inside. The best almond croissant I have eaten. Also, I took home a French bread for sandwiches which lasted two days and it was very good. The staff was friendly and I can not... More

Fun spot for a quick lunch - friendly, fast service. Great kids meals. Perfect for our family. Just bummed that they ran out of salmon.

We stopped here for a mid-afternoon snack. The pastries and coffee were both very good, and the price was quite reasonable. I would recommend anything made with their hazelnut jam. Yum!

Good coffee and an assortment of fresh pastries and breakfast sandwiches make this a great place to stop by for breakfast.

Walked from Union Square through Chinatown looking for inviting place for lunch. Found it at La Boulange! Ordered Quiche and coffee and only paid $7! Coffee came in a bowl (huge) and the quiche was just perfectly made.

The bread at La Boo is EATABLE, I mean, you won't be spitting it out or anything IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW ANY BETTER. But with Sour Dough Bread of the GODS like 'ACME Bread' around, well, it's hard to force it down, know what I'm saying [Read my review on Acme Bread of People's Republic of Berkeley' and you'll know...
