There is something to be said for places with lines out the door - almost all the time!!

We were fortunate to come by at a time when the line wasn't that bad (for once!) We passed the time in line doing what everyone else was doing - trying to peek into the display cases, and checking out every pastry that passed by, carried by oh-so-happy customers. I was in the mood for chocolate... read more

This place often has long lines going outside and down the street. It's like something out of a Seinfeld episode. They haves tons of traditional bakery items like croissants, bread, and various delicious pastries, but they also have great deli items like Croques and coffee! Don't get your hopes up on finding a seat or table. It's very limited. TIP:... More

You'll read about Tartine in SF publications and guides, but take it from those who have visited Tartine...it is truly the best bakery in San Francisco. Because of its excellence, locals and tourists flock there, and there will be lines...even on a weekday mid-morning, but the wait will be worth it. The pastries, sandwiches (croque monsiuer, for example), buns, muffins... More

Lined up shortly after half eight, and got a seat by 9am. Do not attempt on a weekend. Morning buns are a must! My friend ordered their cakes for their wedding instead of a traditional cake, and they were a hit! Coffee is not the strongest, but the pastries are to die for!

The line was long already at the opening but the bread is definitely worth the wait. We do feel like overall this bakery is very good but fame and low seating availability may send people looking for a calm and quiet place other way. We would go back for breakfast any day. The bakery is fantastic and everything looked amazing.... More

Had friends mention this place for great pastries and they were right on. There is always a line but it is worth the wait. Even though it looked like we wouldn't find a seat to eat at a table would open up. We enjoyed so much we ate here 2 out of the 3 mornings in town even having to... More

The food -- including the croissants -- is consistently good and authentically French. But after all these years, the line is still absurdly long, with no signs management is willing to try something different. There are still only two cash registers, and sometimes only one of them is open. Perhaps this question has been asked and answered on TripAdvisor before,... More

This place usually has a line out the door. It's really good so I make it a must stop when I'm in town for business. The chocolate pudding was excellent last time I was there.

Turned up late Sunday morning and had to wait about 20 mins but it is so worth the wait. Delicious food. Loved the croissants and the morning buns. Not cheap but great quality food.
