Best bread in the world. I heard that Chad's bread was the best. I literally boarded a plane in Phoenix and flew to San Fan to see for myself. Confirmed. Best ever. I would fly again for Chad's dough. unbelievable.

I do not know what all the excitement is about. I came here because I was on the hunt for an eclair. An actual eclair and not just a longjohn donut. I did a search on yelp and this place came up. I had no idea it is famous and some foodie paradise. A friend of mine did indicate as much to me on my way out, but I didn't care as long as there was an eclair. I happened upon the place when there was no long line out the door. Trust me, had I encountered such a line, I would not have gone in. Why do perfectly reasonable people stand in long lines for food? Especially after a place has gotten way famous. That's a sure indicator of hype and not substance. People, please stop going for hype. Anyway, they did have eclairs. For $5. But a good size so I went ahead and got one and also a pecan tart. When I ate them, I was not impressed. The eclair's filling was bland and the chocolate overwhelmed the pastry part. No balance. The pecan tart was oversweet but okay. the annoying part was how small it was for the price. I won't be going back. I wouldn't turn down a dessert from here. I also wouldn't request one.

It's a bona fide world-class, James Beard award-winning bakery just sitting on a neighborhood corner. I'm not a baked goods or dessert person in general, but I'm willing to wait in what is often a lengthy line for these breads and pastries — in particular, the croissants, the tres leches cake, the cream tarts (coconut or banana), and the morning bun. I also greatly appreciate the eclairs and the quiche. And the legendary Tartine bread — search for Tartine country bread to get a sense of its impact on the civilized world — is featured well in the pressed sandwiches as well as in what may be their best savory offering, the croque-monsieur.

Like most other popular SF places, Tartine's usually has a line out the door as customers patiently wait for their turn to be helped by the workers. Tartine's is located close to Dolores park and Bi-Rite, so it seems like there's always people coming. They also have an open kitchen area where you can peek into as you're waiting to enter Tartine's, which I thought was really nice. My friends and I had our hearts set on the banana cream tart, but they sadly informed us that it was all sold out, even though we had just seen a few minutes beforehand! I ended up ordering the lemon tart instead. And even though it was good, I was still really bummed about missing out on their banana cream tart! Lemon Cream Tart: If you're into lemony things - lemon bars, lemon cookies - you'll definitely enjoy the lemon tart. I like lemon, but it's not super amazing to me. The lemon cream filling wasn't too sour nor was it too sweet. It had a good consistency to it. The shell of the tart was crispy, which gave a bite to the lemon tart as you dug into it. It's topped off with some unsweetened cream to balance the lemon flavor of the filing. Honestly I wouldn't order this again if I came to Tartine's a second time. Morning Bun: I ordered this to-go and ate it two days later and it was still delicious! Their morning buns are pretty popular, and I can see why! Made with cinnamon, sugar, and orange, this delightful breakfast snack really gives you a reason to wake up. The bread had just enough cinnamon and sugar; I couldn't taste the orange. I would get this again. Croissant: It's huge - but you'd probably expect it to be big at $4.20 a piece. I tried a little of the croissant and thought it was tasty, but nothing special. The bread was flaky and crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Croque Monsieur: They ask if you want this to be heated up, and if you're eating it at the store - you should eat it warm. It makes the flavors come out much better than when it's eaten cold. I tried a little of this, and thought it was tasty. There's ham and cheese along with other herbs - super yummy, but at almost $10, I wouldn't reorder it again. I believe my friend also ordered a savory croissant, which she thought was good. They serve other breads, pastries, and coffee at Tartine's, too. There's limited table seating, so grab one when you can. tl;dr - The food is definitely good, but keep in mind that it can get quite pricey. I would recommend the morning bun and Croque Monsieur. And I'll be back to try that Banana Cream Tart! Service was pretty friendly, but they seemed to be trying to get through customers as quickly as possible. There's utensils, plates, water, etc.if you're dining at Tartine's. If you're into bakeries, I would definitely suggest visiting Tartine's!

Bad luck maybe but I got the chocolate croissant, bread pudding, and spicy turkey. The taste was just ok and I can seriously go broke if I keep buying these overpriced items that gives no special flavour. Spicy turkey was humongous. Extra star there.

So on one of my latest business trips to the bay area, I did some Google-ing to see what bakeries had awesome sourdough to take back with me. This place showed up in the top rankings. I got a bead from the fisherman's wharf just to say I did, then drove to this place. I was there 30 minutes early and so the bread hadn't come out yet. Placed my order on the waiting list and walked to the park around the corner (where some wanna be cholos made me laugh) and enjoyed the view. Made it back to this place at the perfect time, as they called my name about 6.31 seconds after I stepped in. I paid for my two country loaves and started walking the half mile journey back to where I parked my rental car. I could feel the residual heat from the oven still within the bread...and I caved. I took one chunk of the top and placed it in my mouth *angels sing*, the perfection of the bread was amazing. Totally worth having to get stuck in traffic to get down to San Jose at this time on a weekday. The texture of the bread was amazing, the smell that filled the car made me smile, the flavor as I chewed small bite by small bite. Come to think of it, it didn't even dry up my mouth as I ate it...I guess what I'm trying to say is, this place makes very delicious bread. Oh yeah! They also have sweet stuff and café stuff...not my "cup of tea" as sweets don't usually attract me and this place's sweets did not entice. For a tourist, if you don't care for the "Starbucks" type crowd, then just get your stuff and go...your in San Francisco though, you should expect that.

BEAUTEOUS! The line moves fast! Where do you start? Tartine is reallyyyyy good. Came once during off hours with a friend and got a pressed sandwich, which was amazing! I'm usually shy about coconut, but their coconut cream pie is really good...I don't think I need to plug the banana cream pie..chocolate lined crust..perfect whipped cream..DROOL...bread pudding is good too (a little on the sweet sidE) and when the fruits are seasonally right, the trifle is hard to turn down as well. Gem: FRESH HOT LOAVES, which only come out at 4:30pm. Got off work early one day and found parking by Dolores Park, so I race over and get one: PIPING HOT, smelled like HEAVEN. Pretty much floated back to my car--yes, it can induce that kind of ecstasy. :) GO HERE go here and EAT

Tartine is fantastic. The only downside of Tartine (and all the other great bakeries nearby) is that you get spoiled for everywhere else. Try the banana cream tart... can't go wrong with dem apples.
