Excellent sandwiches, fresh and tasty. Good value and well situated not far from the waterfront but far enough from the tourist trap restaurants nearby

Waterfront bakery had some nice cake and confections. I had a white chocolate cake, my wife had tiramisu. It was pretty good. The comfortable sidewalk environment made a cozy place to grab a treat.

OMG! Delicious! We visited this place 10 years ago and had to experience it again during our weekend visit. Their pastries are so fresh, flaky and yummy, you won't be able to resist. They also serve tasty cappuccinos. Best breakfast ever! :)

My husband and I were hungry after a long day, and just wanted to grad something to take back to our room. We got some excellent sandwiches, and they even honored our requests to swap out one bread for another.

We enjoyed some coffee and pastries that had just been baked. If you were not seeking this place out, it would be easily missed from the road or even sidewalk. They need a sign that protrudes from the business or at the very least a...More

Waterfront is one of the few bakeries in San Francisco where viennoisierie get close to European standards. The Italian coffee they serve is also very good. We stayed at Argonaut Hotel nearby, and after we discovered it we went to Waterfront each morning to have...More
