Good sandwich and decent tart

We arrived around 4pm and there wasn't along wait. Nice staff that greeted us with a smile. Limited seating inside, however there are seats and tables outside. We first ordered the prosciutto sandwich. It was a grilled sandwich with prosciutto, cheese and arugula cut into three pieces. It was... read more

Our favorite place to go for breakfast. Despite the usual long lines the morning bun is worth the wait.

The best morning bun I've ever had in my life. I was a bit skeptical about waiting in line for some bread but I'm sure glad I did. I got the morning bun and it was the most delicious thing I ever put in my mouth! The breakfast sandwich was also to die for. My only regret was that I... More

This place is one of the reasons we wanted to visit SF, and apparently we were not the only ones. Queued on a Sunday morning for 1 hour before coming close to the front door, another half hour inside. People have a hard time choosing at the counter and service should be smarter laid out when you sit on a... More

My husband and I came here on a weekend visit. We were recommended this place by a friend. I most loved the people watching - there were a lot of locals and variety of styles and backgrounds. The food was very good - we got a Gruyere and ham filled croissant and an open faced sandwich and both were tasty.... More

Perfectly acceptable baked goods but nothing out of the ordinary. Not even a little bit. You can get pastries that are just as good at Starbucks or Peets. Yet people line up 50 deep on weekends for reasons that I can not fathom. Call it the herd mentality. So not worth it.

Tartine has a reputation for great bread and good treats. The reputation is well deserved. We had bread from the bakery the first night we were in town. It was excellent. The treats in the bakery case are pretty much all good. The coffee is excellent. i recommend the sweet iced coffee. The place has been bought up- hope they... More

We walked from our hotel near Union Square to Tartine Bakery, about 2 miles, as we had read great things about it. We were not disappointed as this is the best French bakery we have ever been to in the US. The place is small, with just a few family style tables. There was a line out the door and... More

Locals think this is the best bakery in San Francisco. The Latte with croissant - divine. Yes, there are long lines. Be prepared for that. Talk to the people in line with you.

Tartine is one of those places that ALWAYS has a line. You have to wonder if people just like to queue up and chat with friends or if the food/experience is just "worth it." I'm not fond of waiting around just for the heck of it. That said I do wait in smaller lines here. It's all about timing so... More
