Tartine is all about locally sourced ingredients like free-range California eggs and European-style, high-fat butter shipped from nearby Oregon. Come early to snag a sticky bun straight from the oven.
Every good day starts with Tartine's bread pudding. It's magical. Also don't miss the morning bun (sugary goodness with a little orange flavor) and the perfect croissants. Just get one of everything.
Seeing as bread is kind of an essential ingredient in a grilled cheese sandwich, it is unsurprising that Tartine makes some damn good ones, considering their bread is more or less the best thing ever.
Tartine's morning buns are worth the wait. Lighter than a cinnamon roll, sweeter than a muffin, and fattier than a green juice, the buns are a perfect compliment to coffee — or to another bun.
Yes there's a wait but what awaits you inside is the absolute best that any bakery, anywhere, any time of day has to offer. In particular, if they have the fresh berry tart, you're in luck!!
Big hype around this place. Long queue. Not so great cake. I tried tres leeches cake and it was... Meh. My friend tried something else, he was also disappointed. Not one of my fav bakeries.
Tartine can do no wrong. Putting whole-grain rye flour in its chocolate cookies, somehow gives them exactly the right texture: dense and fudgy, with a complex chocolate flavor.
The best time to go is after lunch on a weekday. Line tip: If you?re with a friend, take turns while one of you goes shopping for the best local foods around the corner at Bi-Rite.
There is a reason for the line: this place is darn good. Try one of their amazing croissants, or quiche of the day
Although people are going crazy over the Banana Cream Pie, the unsung hero is the Coconut Cream Pie. Best pie I've ever had! And everything else is amazing too.
