We went here after reading a review of the top 25 bakeries in the world, http://www.buzzfeed.com/candacelowry/bakeries-around-the-world-you-should-visit-before-you-die, and although the bakery has no name or branding allowing you to spot it easily, the inside is understated and minimalist, they had a good selection of baked cakes and pastries and some quiches. we ordered 2 coffees, a pain au chocolate and frangipani...

I found this place on a list of the world's best bakeries (only 25) and knew I had to pay it a visit on my trip to San Francisco. We got there around 10:30 AM on a Friday and the line wasn't too long. You have to wait in line to pay and then wait for a table. We got... More

Maybe our expectations were set too high based on the reviews as being one of the best bakeries in San Francisco. We were there early in the morning and the line was 20 deep and the tables inside were full. The counter staff was disorganized, with several people taking our order vs one person taking the group with no one... More

This was recommended to us as serving 'the best croissants ever' by a local San Francisco resident. We were not dissapointed! We had a simple ham and cheese croissant and a chocolate croissant - both were absolutely delicious, crisp, flaky, buttery - beautiful! You can smell this bakery from down the street. We were advised that there is always a... More

Greasy, expensive, sandwiches. Overpriced pastries. Burnt bread. The only thing that was edible was my croissant. Overcooked and overpriced, but tasted okay. The bathroom was horrendous and the back of the store filthy. I would not have eaten there had I seen those first. This bakery would not make it in France! Not worth the long wait outside!

Great bakery! There was always a line! We ate in the bakery and the entire time we were there people were lined up. Good news is the line moves quite quickly, but snagging a table to eat in can be difficult. We had sandwiches here for lunch and they are enormous and delicious. Next time I would definitely get one... More

I went here for breakfast with friends and really enjoyed it. It's buzzy and warm with great coffee and cakes that are tasty and fresh. Also great place to people watch at the communal tables with a view of the street outside

Stopped here for lunch on a sunny day while exploring San Frans' Mission district. Great quiche and panini over a bottle of wine. On recommendation from a friend we went all out on pudding - absolutely gorgeous! Indulgant and not to be missed.

Delicious bakery with amazing croissants, eclairs, macaroons, pies, breads and other pastries which were scrumptious! Coffee was pretty good too.
