It's hard to get to a highly-rated bakery/cafe in SF during normal hours. So we were very happy to see that the line to this highly-rated cafe/bakery was "only" 10 minutes long. The service was not bad at all, they were polite, but nothing over the top. Many of the tarts and cakes looked very good. They have some very... More

We tried fourfold to having breakfast in this bakery before get in...since there was always a long waiting....and we tried too many times since we thought...ok if there is a long queue..it means that you can taste delicious things!!!....Ok ok...good pastries but it is no worth that waiting and price.

Upon hearing few people mentioning this place and doing our own research we decided to stop by and try the famous bread pudding (on the list of things you have to try before you die). I opted for an eclair and I have to say it was one of the better eclairs I had in US- full of rich vanilla... More

We heard that the chocolate croissant was on the list of 25 things to eat before you die. It was definitely tasty. And huge! We took ours to go and enjoyed them in the Muir Woods. After our 2 hour hike, we felt like we earned them!

Stopped here with a few friends during a Mission food crawl. I was not impressed by the desserts or the service. The servers behind the counters and at the register were rude and not helpful in describing any of the many pastries behind the glass. I understand you are overwhelmed and busy, but this seems to be how it is... More

We were staying nearby and saw the crowds in the morning so assumed the food must be great. Maybe we ordered wrongly, but we found the morning bun to be a bit doughy, and the croissants while good, were not worth the wait. The feeling inside the shop is good, but we were not prepared to wait on our second... More

Ok. You will have to wait.. That being said, the pastries are outstanding. I highly recommend. Get the morning bun. Also, walnut butter cookies, they are delicious!!!

I do now! It may have taken an hour, but the end result was the most deliscious ham croissant I have ever eaten. The only downside to Tartine is that there is so much to choose from and only one tiny stomach to fill. I love how success has not gone to their head - the shop feels like part... More

These pastries are AMAZING!!! I was on vacation here looking for some real San Francisco sourdough. Unfortunately our flight was leaving before the bread comes out, but the pastries were quite the consolation. Flakiest, most delectable chocolate croissant I may ever have in my life!!! I also liked that they had smaller items like little cookies and biscuits that would... More
