A Parisian/San Franciscan experience

We tend to go for birthdays, one person usually wakes up early and reserves a spot and the rest of us join up as the morning progresses, Sure helps on a sunny day when outside seating is more tolerable. Quiche is top-notch and reasonable priced. Not exactly the best drip coffee I've ever had, go to Philz up 18th for... More

Do yourself a favour and go. I've read about Tartine and salivated over instagram pictures for eons now. I finally got to go in and everything I tried was divine. There is very limited seating so it is best to pic up treats to go, in my opinion. There is always a line, but fear not, it moves fast and... More

We were fortunate to come by at a time when the line wasn't that bad (for once!) We passed the time in line doing what everyone else was doing - trying to peek into the display cases, and checking out every pastry that passed by, carried by oh-so-happy customers. I was in the mood for chocolate, but didn't want to... More

This place often has long lines going outside and down the street. It's like something out of a Seinfeld episode. They haves tons of traditional bakery items like croissants, bread, and various delicious pastries, but they also have great deli items like Croques and coffee! Don't get your hopes up on finding a seat or table. It's very limited. TIP:... More

You'll read about Tartine in SF publications and guides, but take it from those who have visited Tartine...it is truly the best bakery in San Francisco. Because of its excellence, locals and tourists flock there, and there will be lines...even on a weekday mid-morning, but the wait will be worth it. The pastries, sandwiches (croque monsiuer, for example), buns, muffins... More

Lined up shortly after half eight, and got a seat by 9am. Do not attempt on a weekend. Morning buns are a must! My friend ordered their cakes for their wedding instead of a traditional cake, and they were a hit! Coffee is not the strongest, but the pastries are to die for!

The line was long already at the opening but the bread is definitely worth the wait. We do feel like overall this bakery is very good but fame and low seating availability may send people looking for a calm and quiet place other way. We would go back for breakfast any day. The bakery is fantastic and everything looked amazing.... More

Staying in Mission District

Neighborhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighborhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
