I love the cheese pizza I got here. I went to peir 39 Boudin. And I had nothing but nice people. I loved the food and thought the place was rather cool. I wanted to try the sour dough bread and this place seemed rather tasty. And it is. I loved seeing all the breads they do and designs that... More

The legendary bakery offers a tour of their facility and it is quite interesting. Their sourdough and chowder is the best in town.

If you are in San Fran and get to the wharf, you need to try Boudins if you like sourdough bread. Their bread rocks, and they even make it in shapes that are fun for kids. I also tried their raisin bread, and it was very tasty. The have a restaurant upstairs that is pretty good, and decent prices. We... More

Every time I go to San Francisco, I make a trip to Boudin to get either an awesome bacon grilled cheese sandwich or a bread bowl with clam chowder. No matter how busy they are, counter service is fast and the food is consistently delicious. The only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars is because seating is very limited,... More

Loved this place. Yummy bread, pastries, sandwiches, etc. I even brought some bread home for the holidays. It's in the freezer until it's ready to thaw and enjoy.

A landmark to visit while in San Francisco. ...The Clam Chowder in Sour Dough Bread is amazing. ..On a busy weekend,there can be hundreds of people in the store at one point of time, that speaks for quality but they are unable to control the flow of traffic. ..The service is slow and rude. ...How about being served cold Rustic...

This was our second time coming to Bourdin and both times we enjoyed the foods, the service, and the view of the Fisherman's Wharf. We liked the fact that the restaurant offered a free museum tour while waiting for our reservation. The price is really reasonable considering the views, excellent foods and superb service!
