“Good airport food for cross-country plane trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

This is a very nice airport cafe with pleasant workers. The food was delicious, and I especially liked that both my sandwich and my cookie stayed together during the flight and didn't disintegrate into my lap or my neighbor's lab. I had the turkey/cranberry sandwich and the chocolate cookie, both fresh and good.

“Worth a visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

Lovely place to pick up some sourdough bread and wine or great little gifts for friends back home! Perfectly located in a great little area where people dance freely while musician entertain us all!

“Upstairs is a gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

lots of tourists jockey for position downstairs. limited menu but it includes Boudin's clam chowder in a classic sourdough bread bowl. This was for the heathens!!!

take the time and venture upstairs to Boudin's restaurant. views a great but the food and service are better

we had the oysters on the half shell and oyster Rockefeller. Both 5*!!!

Our soup came and the clam chowder was 100% as was the lobster bisque. the breadbowl was killer and the soup equaled it

i have no regrets and went back to buy bread at the retail shop downstairs

“Fun Bread Store - Sourdough is tasty.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

You can watch bakers making dough into turtles and crabs in the window, they will talk to you and answer questions. The bread, no matter how it is formed, is very good. Bread and real butter, you can't beat it. They make 15,000 loaves a day. You can smell the bread blocks away down Fisherman's Wharf. Yum.

“Heard a lot but..,”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

So it's neither bad mor good, a lot of hype since there are so many wonderful small bakery's every where you look...seemed silly to me to fight the crowd got the big production.
