It's Trivia Tuesday! Where mass-produced breads go from grain hopper to oven in less than two hours, bread making at Boudin is still a _-hour process, thanks to Papa Steve. #boudinbakery

Famed for sourdough since 1849, this California bakery/cafe chain also offers light American bites.- Google
"I had the clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl and enjoyed it very much."
"Was fun watching them shape the bread into animal shapes in the window."

Oh, fresh sourdough bread... there may not be anything more tasty, and you won't find it fresher than here -- you can literally watch it being made. On a recent trip, my wife and I each devoured a sandwich of shrimp salad on a fresh sourdough roll, and it was among the best things we ate all week. Apart from the various soup, salad, and sandwich entrees, there's not much choice of sides other than a selection of prepacked chips, and at busy times (most of the time) it can be a bit chaotic, but it's still a favorite.

Great food! Since it is in such a tourist location, I had low expectations, but I was pleasantly surprised! Their combos are such a great deal! We got a bread bowl of clam chowder with half a havarti and turkey sandwich (which was good enough for two people not looking to get fat) for $11. Warning: do not go to the Bistro upstairs! Everything is super expensive and you can get their most popular item downstairs for half the price! Also, please finish your bread bowl. It's such a shame to see so many people just leave half an unfinished bowl on the table to be thrown away. It's what they are famous for!

Got the clam chowder in a bread bowl and it was okay. Chowder could've used a little more clam juice and a tad more cream. Bread bowl was pretty good. Was fun watching them shape the bread into animal shapes in the window. Staff were helpful and friendly.

Great free show looking and talking at the staff doing special bread at the window. Love the turtle clam chowder, great views and environment. Eat inside to avoid having to protect food from seals. Parking can be tide during weekends and holidays.

Food is amazing! Sour bread is always delicious here and their clam chowder in sourdough is the best! They have an amazing set up of the store with many things to look at! It's fun to see the bread going around the store at the ceiling! :)

Fresh ingredients, not your usual bread bowl. Truly unbelievable. Very busy place, dress warm, the wind makes the pier side so could you'll freeze in about thirty minutes. Ask Mark Twain. The coldest winter he ever saw was the summer he spent in San Francisco.

Best place in San Francisco! Great bakery, all the types of bread they have are amazing! Everything is super tasty! If you don't want to eat anything just get in and take a look at the place, it's beautiful and super original.

The business is famous for being the oldest bakery in the area, I believe. However, the breads are nothing to write home about. In my personal opinion, I think Safeway sells better tasting sourdough. If you are in the area and are wanting an edible "souvenir", then this is where you should go. It is pretty cool how you can watch them work the dough from outside. Price to quality ratio is not good, in my opinion. I'd rather drive into the city for some better tasting sourdough. They do have other things here too though! Sandwiches, treats, souvenirs, tourists, coffees...then again, right beside you can get a breadbowl full of clam chowder haha.
