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.

The worse part when you are hungry and you can order some food, is not receive what you order! I order a sandwich in a croissant, but they sold out, then they come and ask which other bread I prefer, I choose ciabatta, and I was very clear, I didn't want to eat a sourdough bread in that occasion, the lady told the kitchen, and I can hear "ciabatta", but when I receive my sandwich for my surprise was a sourdough bread. Boudin bakery is great in Macy's, in Jefferson st, Corte Madera but on pier39 the service is poor and the food sometimes is not even fresh.

The quality and services went down over the years. It was not as it used to be. Everything is overrated now and it is not the best clam chowder in the bread bowl that I ever had. The bread bowl is thick so you really it getting that much clam chowder. There is no choice without the bread, except if you buy the cans. It was not the worst chowder in SF, but they have the most unfriendly staffs.

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.

Cool place but food quality and care not very high. Sloppy I guess due to not having to worry about returning trade. My traditional breakfast should have had jam but you have to ask for this after its served to actually get it! I heard the table next to me say they didn't get jam with theirs either. Bread quality is good but other than that it's not so great. High prices too.

Ground floor is the cafe and gift shop. Interesting design integrating bread kitchen into the whole floor. Second floor is the bar and restaurant. Great service from the waitress. Very acknowledgeable and hospitable. Great wine selection. Had a glass of White Zin from Napa Valley 2014, served chilled. Taste is very fruity and crispy. Beautiful view over the pier and bayshore from the window seat or patio seat. Clam chowder in sourdough bread is a must-have. Clam chowder is very creamy and tasty with big chunk of clam meat. Dungeness crab cocktail is a good light diner choice. Crab meat tastes very fresh and bouncy. Garlic bread is very tasty.

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! :)

Very friendly and service minded staff at the register the morning when we walked in to have breakfast. The scrambled eggs served in a bread bowl were great and filling, and the coffee was very good as well. The only thing that drags the experience down is that they don't have restrooms until the restaurant opens (at 11 or 11:30) and send you to the not very clean public restrooms on the wharf.
