I have had the pleasure of eating some tasty treats from Starbucks that they produce and sell at many Starbucks! With that said, nothing compares to this real bakery with extremely fresh croissants quiches and many other baked goods and organic coffees. I had an almond croissant that was the best I ever had and a delicious chai tea latte.... More

If you've been traveling for several days with no real meal, stop at La Boulange for great coffee and Bfast - service is efficient, bread is extremely fresh, coffee is hot and food is flavorful. Extremely good food and coffee!

Little Italy is a street lined with restaurants, sidewalk cages, and decadent pastry shops. La Boulange brews an organic cup of coffee that would meet the expectations of any NW traveler, an even lovelier bowl of cappuccino, and the pastries to accompany your brew top the cake! Pull up a sidewalk seat and enjoy while the world goes by.

Stopped here for lunch and had the Boulange club and some carrot soup. Both items were really tasty. I had the sandwich with a side of quinoa, which comes in the form of a cold salad. The serving was generous, also very delicious. It's not often that you can get something like that as a side with your sandwich! The... More

A very good "Coq au vin" tartine. Tasty, generous and nicely cooked lentils. Well organized, nice location but a little bit crowd at lunchtime.

Our family visited this café/bakery on our last day in San Francisco and we were looking for somewhere to grab some lunch before checking out of our accommodation so didn't want anywhere which was going to take ages. The menu looked terrific and the place was busy but we managed to get two tables together so all good. The food... More

we had lunch at the downtown La Boulange. The choices of panini offered were creative and good. However, the French onion soup did not even resemble one. The system works well, it is fast and well organized and the setting was expansive and nice, but the warm food could use an improvement.

My wife and I ate here because we walked by it and were starving. I ordered the oatmeal which was really good. Fresh fruits like bananas, strawberries and blueberries were added to my oatmeal. The oatmeal was made with low fat milk and not water which is awesome!!! The oatmeal or fresh oats as they call it on the menu... More
