You know its a great bakery when I ask the cab driver to stop off between the Financial District and SFO! The bakery does what San Francisco does best - provides no compromise goods you will remember. If you get a chance, try it - I think you will really like it.

Yes, Tartine Bakery is totally hyped, but I can tell you: with good reason. We stayed around the corner, in the heart of Mission, so it was no problem for us to get up early to wait in line for 30 minutes even before the bakery opened. Once you're ready to order it can be pretty overwhelming because you see... More

The service wasn't friendly, but the food was amazing. The line moved fairly quickly. We split a tasty (and decently sized) goat cheese walnut bread sandwich, which was served with apple slices, and took home an almond frangipane croissant and a gingerbread tile, both of which were delicious.

I recently traveled to SF with family and were told to visit Tartine Bakery. It is considered an institution in SF. We went on a Monday, and there was a small line out the door, but it moved fast. Upon entering the bakery, a Tartine employee provided menus. The line moved swiftly and we first ordered our pastries/desserts towards the... More

After many recommendations we drove here for afternoon tea first thing after arriving in SF. Of course there was a line outside but it moved fairly quickly and we were able to order and find a table. We ordered a coconut cream tart and a brioche bread pudding. Both were fantastic! The cappuccinos were okay.

great bread pudding and a good chocolate croissant, not my favorite coffee, overall some good items but perhaps not worth the line if you're in a hurry, I'd say go get some pastries to bring home or take along for a ride, but no need to sit.

How it has become and institution and people queue for it i dont get. You get better coffee elsewhere in sf and pastries as well. I paid 15 dollars for a... More

We were in the neighbourhood when time came to have a bite. We quickly spotted Tartine bakery, and the queue outside, so thought this was a no-brainer. Well, food is not bad, but the ammounts of grease on our hot sandwiches made us feel differently. The ingredients were all good and the portions very generous. We are simply not used... More

Mmm. The banana cream pastry is delicious and the cappuccino is perfect. I got here at about 3:30 to order some loaves of sourdough bread to bring back to the east coast. Not a long wait for the pastry and cool vibe to the neighborhood.

After waiting some 45 minutes in line on a Sunday morning, starting about 15 minutes after the bakery opened, we made it inside! The relatively small space contains tables of various sizes and the line to purchase baked goods snakes along the showcase windows to the register. Fresh coffee and tea is available, along with fruit juice. Everything in the... More
