It was almost closing time so there was a limited variety of goodies to select. We took two slices of ham Quiche to go and heated them up for breakfast the next morning. They were great. Our first choice was the croissant with smoked ham & gruyere but of course they were out. People line up early in the morning... More

Chad Robertson, founder of the Tartine Bakery, studied his craft with the old world masters before bringing some of the best artisan baked goods back stateside. I've read his books and produced poor imitations of his work, and was absolutely thrilled to make a stop by ground zero for American artisan sourdough on the way to Napa. Respect. The croissants...

If you have a sweet tooth, this is the place to go. There's always a line but it's so worth your time waiting! The chocolate croissant is seriously humongous and delicious! LOVE!

The croissants and bread pudding were very good, although quite expensive (I never paid nearly 5$ for a croissant anywhere!). I was disappointed they didn't sell baguette or other bread. Definitely worth the detour, but be prepared for a long line (it moves fast though). We stopped on our way out of the city with the rental car, there was... More

The pastries were good but no better than many other places and not up to the hype. I was served by a man who was rude & unhelpful. Walked off & started serving someone else. I will not be returning.

A friend kept telling me how delicious the croissants are at Tartine, so my husband and I waited in line to try one on Saturday afternoon on a recent trip to San Francisco. I live behind a really tasty bakery, so at least once a month I make sure to grab a flaky delicious delicacy. I figured this Tartine delight... More

We asked our uber driver to make a stop at this bakery. What a treat! We packed up 7 loaves of sourdough for the flight home. The bread was rich with a crunchy crust. The flavor was acidic and delicious. Worth the stop!

I visited Tartine twice just to make sure that my delicious choices the first time was not a fluke. I shared the pastrami open faced sandwich, lemon tart, ham and cheese croissant, and bread pudding with 2 others. It's a lot of food. The open face grilled pastrami on sourdough blanketed with melted cheese and horse radish was wonderfully painful... More

Seriously this place is popular!! We went like 8ish in the morning and there were already a line. Don't worry. The line moves fast and it's totally worse of waiting. Try the croissant - simple but breathtaking!! I will definitely go again next time when I am in San Francisco...

I visited this place with much anticipation because of its fame. I was not disappointed. The sandwiches were delicious. Not only the sourdough is great but also the other ingredients. The sandwiches are huge and may be shared. The atmosphere is relaxed. You really feel like a local. I would return many, many times if I could.
