This place has delicious clam chowder and sourdough bread. The shop inside the restaurant is a great place to buy quality souvenirs to take back home. They have a little something for everyone back home.

It is very enjoyable to eat a hot soup on a cold San Francisco on a late afternoon. The Bistro is very busy though.

Hubby and I stopped by boudin's. It was awesome. Had clam chowder in a bread bowl. We stopped another day and had a sour dough bagel. It was light. Not heavy like a normal bagel. Wish I would have bought more to bring home.
