Stopped in on a soggy, cold Wednesday afternoon at what we thought would be an off time (3ish). All the tables were full but the line was short. We stood at the window bar and enjoyed a coconut cream tart & a couple cappuccinos. The tart was delicious and the espresso was perfect. Really glad we stopped in, exceeded our... More

Tartine is an experience. Full disclosure, we went at 3:30 on a Wednesday and had no line at all. Even if there was a line knowing what I know now, I'd wait. My wife and I ordered a coconut cream tart, cappuccinos and some macaroons and wow. Just wow. Everything was so good. Even though we weren't starving we lacked... More

Decide in advance whether it's worth it to you to stand in a bakery line for 45 minutes. The upside – out-of-towers get to meet interesting locals. Everything we had was excellent--croissants, breakfast rolls, bread pudding, pain au jambon--but be prepared to bring it elsewhere as seating is skimpy. And yes, we went back twice, so it was worth it... More

Thoughtfully made desserts and breads made with fine ingredients. Quality is 5-star, and I particularly like that their desserts are not overly-sweet. My fav has to be the bread pudding; but, I would hate to leave out their lemon tarts which are every bit as good as my grandmothers' recipe.

I've been to France a few times and the friend who I visited Tartine with also often travels in France. The lines outside had us curious to step in and join the wait for a treat. We are not locals. The latte is served in bowls much like in a French village. The baked goods had an aroma which drew... More

Where to begin...the line was ominous but moved quickly. Magnificent pastries stocking the display cases. It's hard to know where to begin. On recommendation we started with the breakfast roll; a buttery, pastry roll with glazed sugar...so simple & so satisfying. The mushroom croque monsieur was fabulous and very shareable. Followed by the lemon meringue layer cake, chocolate & almond... More

Easily the best bakery i have ever been to... and I've been to France!! This Aussie gal traveled there and yes, there was a line but it was worth it. Bring an empty stomach and a bag to pack for later.... highly recommended, they know pastries

If one has a hankering for a rich dessert, go to Tartine Bakery to indulge! The selection of sinfully rich cakes and tarts will satisfy any tastebuds. Though small, crowded and noisy, the (inevitable) wait is worth it. They serve breakfast fare as well, but what truly stands out is the pastry. And though portions seem on the small side,... More

This was a place my daughter wanted to eat at on our visit to San Francisco. She had heard great things about it from a friend who grew up here. I read about the long lines!! We drove over, found a parking place a few blocks away, and got in line. It really wasn't bad, as it gave us time... More

Staying in Mission District

Neighborhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. 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. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
