If you know Boudin's, you would have heard about their famous clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl. A meal in itself and always consistent with its flavors...they're in several locations around the city.

Good food and a Coca-Cola Freestyle machine, in a basement. The basement setting isn't ideal, but it is a noisy food court in the heart of Union Square. That means taking your kids here won't be a problem. The food is actually quite good.

Visited Union square to see Christmas Tree and had Boudin Soup in Macy's basement complex. The sauce was tasty and so was the container (bread)!

The place was busy as can be, in in Macy's as said here, but actually on O'Farrell Street, and you enter right from the sideway.

Had breakfast here a couple of times. Staff were very pleasant. Clean but small. A lot of regulars picking up coffee

Great location and atmosphere, and it's right on the wharf. If you love clam chowder, ya gotta get it in a Boudin bread bowl. Even the small size will fill you up but, indulge and get the big one. Lots of great sour dough bread...More

Looking for a quick lunch while shopping at Union Square? Boudin Bakery is the place to be. Soup in a bread bowl is a wonderful treat on a cold windy day.
