I really really love the sourdough bread and the clam chower from Boudin, especially those bread bowl style. Perfect for a meal, be it breakfast, lunch or dinner. And boudin has to be the best. The one and only worth trying.

After nearly 3 weeks in America, this has to be the best meal yet! We went to the restaurant upstairs and while waiting for a table had a birds eye view of the bakers creating teddy bears and turtles out of bread. We had a lovely table overlooking the bay and our waitress was just lovely. The meal - beef... More

The restaurant in on the second floor of the bakery. The food was very good and there are nice views of the wharf. Service was good. There is a little room with the history of the bakery you can browse. Enjoy the sourdough bread!

Loved the ambience of this establishment with the store attachment. Well worth a visit whilst in San Francisco. Boudins is known for their sourdough & it doesn't disappoint. May be considered a bit expensive, however it is an institution not to be missed.

There were counters to order but we were sure there was a sit down restaurant and finally figured out to go upstairs. We... More
