I want to live in this bakery!

Incredible!! I wanted to try everything. Excellent croissants - all flavors, but I especially liked the almond. The morning bun is delicious as well. Their lemon-almond poppyseed load is amazing. We returned later in the week for additional times and more croissants. Don't let the lines dissuade... read more

We were in that area for going to somewhere else. Than we noticed that it was closed that day, and we think that we should try this world famous bakery but maybe we could'nt pick the nicest things. It was so crowded, I ordered my food and I waited my husband (seated) after half and hour he came! And i... More

This bakery is raved about by many people including a friend of my daughter's who said we had to go there. Maybe it's what we ordered, but we thought the chocolate cake was dry and not what we expected. The fruit crumble was better tasting, but you also needed a cup of coffee with it.

The food is good (even if the cheese tartine was reaaaaaally too fat) and the staff rather friendly...but the price! It's basically only sandwich ! $13 for bread + cheese. Way too expensive, offering organic food cannot justify on it's own the prices.

The croissants here are super flaky and so delicious. I saw them once going into the oven and they looked super yellow, I'm thinking from all the butter! They are amazing! I love their lemon tart and banana cream pie tart with the extra chocolate and caramel layer at the bottom!

As all other sane reviewers have said, Tartine is a gem of a bakery. I haven't experienced pastry or other brunch-related food so delectable anywhere other than Paris. The bread budding with fresh fruit is worth every single calorie, as is the croque monsieur, and pain au chocolat. The espresso is also very high quality. I love both their cappuccino... More

Don't let the line up out the door deter you, in fact it should confirm how amazing this place is if people are willing to wait 30+ minutes for a pastry. I had a pain au chocolate and croque Monsieur and sweet jeasus it was worth every damn calorie.

Went there based on recommendations from my colleagues in town. The place was packed even during odd hours (2ish in the afternoon) and ordered their famous croissant and bread pudding. The croissants and bread puddings were good but I wouldn't wait in line to get them. I bet the croissants were much better when they're still warm.

The line out the door, all day long, says it all. Yes, it means not fast enough service, but also croissants that set the standard for excellence. I can't splurge on croissants often, but I will save my indulgences for this place.

Oh my God, this place is amazing!. A tiny bakery, but with authentic pastries.Don't even remember the name of the pastries, they were like cream puffs with different ingredients baked in. So light & tasty. Also, had a piece of cake, and decided to come back and buy a whole one for a dinner party. Next day, asked my relatives... More
