The best croissant ever. I tried a croissant filled with ham and cheese, definitely delicious!! If you go on the weekend you will see a line around the block. Its worth the wait! I would go across the street to the video store to get a coffee while I wait in line.

Seriously the best croissant I've ever had! There's usually a line out the door, but trust me, it's worth the wait. And usually when there's a line you know it'll be good. The croissant was perfect! Crispy on the outside and super light and fluffy on the inside. It wasn't too buttery or too oily, it had the right balance... More

We heard raving reviews , but since we live in Montreal, we are no stranger to le croissant et le croissant au chocolat. So we tried their croissant and pain au chocolat which is basically a croissant filled with chocolate, yes both were good but we have had better in our home town. We also tried the savory scone and... More

Don't get me wrong, the creme pat was delicious and the pastry divine, but the line here took like an hour. I found myself pondering, why don't they raise their prices to take advantage of this, then I got to the front and found they have - $5 for an hour's wait and a croissant, you feel like you have...

Delicious bakery goods and sandwiches + friendly service. Be prepared to wait in a line - and bring a friend to save a table! Not much seating available. Large portions on all of the cakes and pastries.

Super organised. Long wait in line but get to have a menu and to select items. Once ordered food delivered promptly. Lovely, lovely. Great staff, friendly service. Super busy. Washrooms were clean. Menu items plus cabinet food. Would recommend to all.

You may have to wend through the streets and you will have to stand in (a ridiculously long) line but no, simply no, eating experience in San Francisco will outshine one, two or three trips to Tartine. Done. That's it. Think you know Croque Monsieur? Try theirs. Doesn't get better...and I'm including Paris. Croissants to die for. Ah, forget it,... More

I had the almond ricotta cake. I was expecting something else. It was good but not what I imagined. I bought some of the smaller items in the display and was especially fond of the merengues, friand and the Mexican wedding cake cookies. Would like to go back and give something else a try. The only drawback is the huge... More

While the queue to get a seat here is often crazy because of the good breakfast food...we didn't struggle. We sat outside in the sunshine watching the people go by while sipping on great coffee and munching on a delicious cinnamon bun. I'd definitely go back.

The pastries and the coffee were really good. We got there early and avoided the line. The coffee is an even longer wait after ordering. One guy making coffee in a busy place is ridiculous. The coffee was the best I had in the States, however. Worth a visit

Thank Jamie C

Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighborhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners.
