Would be perfect -- except for the customer service

The food -- including the croissants -- is consistently good and authentically French. But after all these years, the line is still absurdly long, with no signs management is willing to try something different. There are still only two cash registers, and sometimes only one of them is... read more

The food -- including the croissants -- is consistently good and authentically French. But after all these years, the line is still absurdly long, with no signs management is willing to try something different. There are still only two cash registers, and sometimes only one of them is open. Perhaps this question has been asked and answered on TripAdvisor before,... More

This place usually has a line out the door. It's really good so I make it a must stop when I'm in town for business. The chocolate pudding was excellent last time I was there.

Turned up late Sunday morning and had to wait about 20 mins but it is so worth the wait. Delicious food. Loved the croissants and the morning buns. Not cheap but great quality food.

I'm giving this rating based on the morning bun, which was perfectly baked. Crispy on outside, yet wonderfully doughy. I'm not a fan of orange vest and it didn't bother me at all, just a faint hint. Only improvement would be more cinnamon. The croque monsieur with mushrooms was a bit disappointing. It wasn't very flavorful and the bechamel was... More

Wow! Best French bakery outside of France. Very authentic. The aroma wafts through the neighborhood, and the line is long. You.Must.Go!

Another place I've been meaning to come to for years! I didn't eat in the restaurant (although the sandwiches looked yummy), but got several desserts to go. I couldn't make up my mind and ended up with quite bit ... and it was all delicious. I have to say that their shortbread was fabulous!

I travel to SF frequently and had heard of Tartine's but only recently made time to go there. It definitely lived up to it's reputation. I love croissants and have eaten croissants in France. Tartine's were every bit as good if not better. The ham & gruyere croissant breakfast sandwich was amazing. It had just the right combination of each... More

The quality of Tartine's food, make it well worth the wait! Our group ordered breakfast pastries.The Pain Au Chocolat rivaled any that I recently had in Paris! My husband loved the savory Cake Aux Olives and be sure to order the amazing morning bun! Be aware that if you want to purchase a loaf of bread, you will need to... More

I visit every time and it never disappoints. Plain, chocolate and ham & cheese croissants are all delicious.

Really really good pastries- everything was first rate: morning bun, gougere, croissant- as well as the lattes. We were there 3 times during our week in San Francisco. I must be getting to an age, however, where i feel slightly ridiculous waiting in line for more than maximum of 20-30 minutes to get something to eat. So go a little... More
