We stopped here for breakfast and we really enjoyed the fresh pasties. Unfortunately the selection was a bit small.

My son absolutely loves their sourdough. He first encountered Boudin at Disneyland - California Adventure. He happily suggested we eat here. Located beside Macy's in Union Square. One of my favourite sandwiches is their delicious chicken salad sandwich. It never disappoints. My spouse really likes...More

Cannot fault this place - even though it is very busy they have everything working like clockwork. Loads of seating and outside which was lovely as it was glorious weather. Delicious tacos and clam chowder. Happy to eat here several times!

We came here after a visit to Alcatraz. The soup /chowder in bread bowl is hearty and there is a vegetarian soup. Service was a little slow but otherwise a reasonable quick stop. Probably not the best place for good clam chowder though.

Even though this is a bakery, there is much more to this spot. There is a lovely market where you can get local wines, foods, gifts as well as bakery foods. Their hand crafted breads in the shapes of teddy bears, alligators and other animals...More
