We spent our day with one of our friend in SF and he took us to this bakery. There was a lineup to get in. The smell was taking me to childhood when my mother was cooking homemade bread. Making our ways inside the bakery just created anxiety & stress,,, Can I order one of each? The breads, the desserts... More

Everything is delicious but there is no place to sit! The line covers the bakery case so it's hard to see what you want before you have to order and then there's pressure to order fast because there are so many people waiting behind you!

Have been coming here each time I am in the San Francisco bay area. The sweets are delicious, so is their ham and cheese croissants, and you can not miss having a slice of their quiche - they usually have two varieties - one meat and cheese, and the other vegetable and cheese. You will leave with a smile.

Apparently Tartine is pretty popular. So much so that there can be a 20-30 minute wait to purchase overpriced pastries. The tarts and cakes are okay. Nothing mind blowing, and certain not good enough to warrant the rave and the lines.

The best stuff, i don't even have a sweet tooth and wanted the desserts. Not fancy, just delicious. I highly recommend their croissants.

Tartine has been named the best bakery in America, and has won numerous awards. And food critics have called its sourdough breads "the best bread in America". Pretty high praise! And, since I bake sourdough breads (including the Tartine-style breads from their excellent book) I had to make the pilgrimage to see what it's all about. I've now been to... More

Been going to Tartine for years and even when returning to San Francisco its one of my obligatory stops. There is usually a line and finding a table can sometimes be a problem, but the food makes up for it. Great croissants, lemon tarts, croque monsieur and other great treats.

We went on a Sunday afternoon and perhaps that was the reason for a long line to get into the very small space that is Tartine. It was a 30 minute wait from the time I got in line and ordered our selections. The pastry is very well presented, looks delicious and of a good variety. There are tables inside,... More
