The length of the line was disappointing, but went remarkably fast. So worth the wait! Absolutely the best croissant I've ever tasted. Prices are reasonable as well. Make the time to visit Tartine while in San Francisco!

Great gourmet sandwiches and pastries.. the sandwiches were hugs, and could have made do with one between us, but the cakes are way to good to share. Highly recommended late morning trip to Mission district and worth the wait in line. Wasn't too keen on the seating arrangements as was a bit cramped and lack of personal space, but the... More

Delicious cookies, chocolate croissants, perfect eclairs, shortbread cookies!!! Glad I have the cookbook to try some of these at home now. We will be back because we weren't there to try the fresh baked bread people rave about.

A friend strongly suggested the place, luckily it is only 1.8 miles from where we are staying. After a leisurely walk, we found the place and joined the queue to place our order (the line extended outside soon after). My son had Croque Monsieur with ham, I had the veg quiche and we shared a 4" lemon tart. The Croque... More

Ok, my review might be a little screwed since I now live in San Francisco. That been said, and out of the way; Tartine Bakery is the city's most culinary accoladed bakery. Chad (the owner, and head baker) and his crew of bakers (and at times arrogant counter gals!), thrive to make a unique experience to the non-city-dwellers, and tourists... More

Upon a special recommendation, we went 3 days ago to check out Tartine bakery. We bought many things for an entire day supply of sweet treats - a morning bun, frangipane croissant, banana cream tart, chocolate hazelnut tart and a frangipane tart. First and foremost, let me say that the banana cream tart and the chocolate hazelnut tart were spectacular.... More

We went here five years ago, and had the best coffee in the U.S. we ever had. They are now serving a lesser coffee, but the baked goods are still outstanding. Get there when it opens to avoid lines and get a seat - not many tables.

Ok--first off--the coffee was fabulous and the chocolate croissant was about the best I've ever had. The communal seating in the tiny space was not as off putting as I first thought it would be. Everyone that worked there was pleasant and more than accommodating!

Delicious sandwiches and pastries in a great neighborhood location in the Mission District. Had the Pecorino & Almond sandwich: Pecorino cheese with chopped almonds spread perfectly toasted. Took a coconut tart home on the plane that night! Afterwards, go around the corner to Bi-Rite Market to check out the local flavors and pick up any foodie souvenirs. Then across the... More

Stopped by here for a solo late lunch during a weekday. The place was crowded but not super-crowded. Got into the short line and ordered myself a Jambon Royale and Gruyere (ham and cheese basically) hot pressed sandwich to eat on site and a glass of white wine to go with it (you order everything, pay and pick up the...
